Weed Management Information

"The best and most cost effective means of weed control is prevention! If you see a new plant you don't recognise, get it identified immediately. However, in a Bushcare situation it is particularly important to ensure the plant is first properly identified before it is removed." (www.weedscrc.org.au)

If you are having trouble identifying a weed please feel free to look through our database of weed management information.
