I came by this property a few weeks earlier and a woman was working to remove all of the weeds, which were immature and relatively small, from the gravel mulch at the base of the wall, which extends around the corner, and belongs to a storage company. The tree wells along the curb are part of the Tri-Met project and are clean as well, due to here diligence? likely. In any event her dutiful efforts benefit nearby properties by reducing the weed seed load. Interestingly much of the property on the west side of 17th here, stretching from just north of Holgate almost to Mcloughlin, is owned by private investors or Tri-Met and is awaiting redevelopment having had structures demolished and cleared and is being held in an increasingly weedy state. This is no doubt a factor in Tri-Mets adjacent and median finished landscapes.
