Herbicide Spraying on Shire and Road Reserves

Published on Thursday, 3 February 2022 at 1:01:24 PM

Herbicide spraying will be undertaken on the Shire of Denmark’s bushland reserves and road reserves throughout February to April 2022.

The spraying is part of a strategic plan to control invasive, declared weeds and pest plants in the Shire in accordance with the Shire of Denmark Weeds Strategy and Action Plan.

Spraying will be conducted by licensed contractors and will target local, State and Nationally-listed weeds, including blackberry (Rubus sp.), taylorina (Psoralea pinnata), madiera vine (Anredera cordifolia) and sweet pittosporum (Pittosporum undulatum).

The community is reminded to always avoid picking blackberries from bushland and road reserves, in the event they may have been sprayed.

Spraying will not occur adjacent to properties listed on the Shire’s 'No Spray Register'.
