Noxious weeds are undesirable, non-native invasive plant species that have negative impacts on crops, native plant communities, livestock, and the management of natural or agricultural resources. Noxious weed species frequently colonize roads and are likely to be spread during road maintenance. Transportation systems can facilitate the spread of plants through the movement of seed and plant parts on motor vehicles.

"The term "weed" means different things to different people.  In the broadest sense, it is any plant growing where it is not wanted. Weeds can be native or non-native, invasive or non invasive, and noxious or not noxious.
