I recently moved to a different region of Montana and (losing two full USDA zones, ugh) and am faced with new weeds to eradicate. I searched the Montana noxious weeds site as I assume this beast is not friendly, but was unable to identify it. Thankfully, it seems to be shallow-rooted although I could be mistaken. It is apparently as each dead and burr-covered stalk is surrounded by healthy new grew foliage at the base. Because I'm new to the area, I have no idea what the plant looks like while growing. Any help would be appreciated as I have a somewhat forested area literally covered in this. I began the torturous process of removing these plants and was soon covered head to toe in small pain-inducing burrs. I decided before I continue, I should verify that I am doing the right thing and not spreading these terrible plants. Thanks in advance!
