To reserve the City’s buckthorn removal tool, please fill out the buckthorn removal tool (weed wrench) request form or call the City at 651-792-7800.  

The Ramsey County Arden Hills compost site also accepts buckthorn from residents that would like to drop off their buckthorn. For hours of operation and additional locations, visit Ramsey County Yardwaste. Please remove any roots from the buckthorn plants and place the roots in a yard waste container provided by your garbage hauler. Call your hauler for more information.
