Knot On My Property
The Knot On My Property (KOMP) program was developed in partnership with the Invasive Species Council of Metro Vancouver (ISCMV) and Fraser Valley Invasive Plant Council (FVIPC) to educate homeowners about Japanese Knotweed.
Japanese Knotweed is native to Asia but can be found at large in British Columbia just about anywhere including driveways, gardens, roads, ditches and creeks. It grows to three meters tall, can cause extensive damage to private and public property, and wreaks havoc on the environment. The plant spreads aggressively by root (20 meters horizontally!), seed and plant fragments. Learn all you need to know about Knotweed through the following short videos.
