Wild Chervil and Bur Chervil (Anthriscus spp)

Wild chervil invades pastures and hayfields, reducing forage available for grazing animals and causes molding in hay crops. It can also be a host for a virus that attacks carrot, celery and parsnip crops. Both species can form dense stands that compete with native vegetation in moist meadows and riparian areas. Classified as a noxious weed under the BC Weed Control Act.
