The updated Arizona State Noxious Weed List has been approved through the governor’s office and will become law on January 4, 2020. The last update was made in 2005. Several species have been dropped from the old list and many new ones have been added.
The Arizona Native Plant Society and the Southwest Vegetative Management Association (SWVMA) partnered to do the research and finalize the new list, to lobby the Department of Agriculture, and engage in active advocacy in public meetings.
