Sonoma County authorities seized 63,000 marijuana plants valued at $1.1 million during a weeklong eradication operation, officials said Friday.

The county's narcotics task force and state investigators destroyed the plants, which ranged from 2 to 5 feet in height, said Sonoma County Sheriff's Detective Sgt. Chris Bertoli. Authorities used a helicopter to reach the plants, which were located in rough and steep terrain. At one site, they seized 20 pounds of harvested marijuana that was being dried.

"It was good to get a lot of plants out of there early in the season," Bertoli said.

The task force has seized 100,000 plants so far this year.
