With regard to controlling scotch broom and other noxious weeds in the Mt. Hood National Forest area, a good first step is to check with the Cooperative Weed Management Area that includes Clackamas County. A good contact person is Sam Leininger, WeedWise Program Manager, Clackamas Soil & Water Conservation District. (503) 210-6006 sleininger@conservationdistrict.org

If the noxious weeds are growing on National Forest land near Zigzag, I would also advise you to contact the Zigzag Ranger Station (503) 622-3191 or the Mt. Hood National Forest office in Sandy 503.668.1700 to find out about their weed control plans.
