Many silvicultural and land management activities on national forest land involve moving vehicles and equipment at off-road locations. As a result, seeds and spores can be picked up, transported, and transplanted over great distances. This publication summarizes the concepts for removing seeds from vehicles and equipment to control the spread of noxious weeds, invasive species, and disease. The appendixes contain vendor information and other resources.
