Skeletonweed, alias Chondrilla juncea, is a noxious weed.  Skeleton weed is spread by tilling, resprouts after mowing or burning, and is moderately resistant to herbicide. The milky latex (sap) makes cattle nauseous.  Hand pulling has been shown to be an effective option.  We need people to pull and bag weeds. If you have difficulty bending, you might still be able to help!  No plant ID experience necessary, we will teach you!
