Invasive Weed Control Program Underway

Published on Thursday, 11 March 2021 at 10:08:05 AM

Herbicide spraying has commenced on Shire of Denmark bushland reserves and road reserves and will continue into April.

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’s Weeds Strategy and Action Plan.

Spraying is being conducted by licensed contractors and will target local, state and nationally listed weeds, including:

  • Blackberry (Rubus sp.)
  • Taylorina (Psoralea pinnata)
  • Madiera Vine (Anredera cordifolia)
  • 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”.
