Managing Invasive Plants in Weston
The Town of Weston’s Conservation Commission appreciates the care and attention given by residents who wish to remove invasive plants from their property and restore the natural structure of the land.
It’s important to note that there may be sensitive natural areas and/or their associated buffer zones on your property. All work within wetlands, rivers, stream, and ponds (Resource Areas) and the surrounding 100-foot Buffer Zone or 200-foot Riverfront Area must be reviewed and approved by the Conservation Commission for compliance with the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act (MGL Chap 131, Sec. 40) prior to commencement of work.
Please review our new Invasive Plant Removal Request Form and Guidelines below to determine whether your invasive plant project qualifies for our new streamlined permitting process. You can contact the Conservation Office if you have any questions: 781-786-5068; firstname.lastname@example.org.
