A weed wrench tool is very helpful in permanent removal of invasive species such as scotch broom. Successful removal of scotch broom requires digging out the root system. Weed wrenches are available for use free of charge through King Conservation District.
For more information about controlling Scotch Broom, visit King County Noxious Weeds website for this fact sheet:

The incorporated cities of Enumclaw, Federal Way, Skykomish, Milton, and Pacific are outside KCD’s boundaries, but landowners in those communities may rent the manure spreader on a case-by-case basis for an additional fee.
