Scotch broom is an alien invasive plant taking over huge areas of the Pacific Northwest and worldwide. Broom spreads rapidly and densely, chokes out native species, and prevents reforestation. It is a fire hazard & toxic to animals and the soil. Broom takes over fields, pastures, meadows and farms. A single plant can produce well over 20,000 seeds that last in the soil for more than 30 years. Broom seriously harms forestry, farming, tourism, our ecosystem & our health.
