Curious about this weed... Very tall, over 6 ft. Hollow stalk. Unused pasture in southwest Ohio. TIA!

Does it get that tall? Check out these stalks. I just want to rule out poison hemlock... It kinda looks like it.

From those last pictures I would say poison hemlock. The leaf picture and purple spots on the stem are more helpful for ID than the flowers.

Thanks, Sooby. I was afraid of that. There's sooo much of it. I need to read up on eradication procedures.

It would have been great if you had included those last photos with the first bunch. I agree Poison Hemlock.
