Envu Solutions – Wild parsnip

Wild parsnip (Pastinaca sativa) is a poisonous invasive weed that has invaded roadsides, power lines, pipelines and other non-crop lands in various areas throughout North America. Native to Europe and Asia, the plant is now in all Canadian provinces other than Nunavut and is ubiquitous within disturbed areas where it can form dense extensive stands.
