A weed is a plant that grows where it’s not wanted and can harm other plants. Weeds can have negative effects on our local environment. They compete with native plants for resources, which reduces biodiversity. Weeds can also change the soil and disrupt natural ecosystems, impacting wildlife. It’s important for our local community to help control weeds. By doing so, we protect native plants, maintain a beautiful environment, and prevent economic losses in industries like agriculture. Our community’s efforts in weed control contribute to preserving our environment and keeping our region healthy.
