Weeds are a major threat to our unique natural environment, threatening the survival of hundreds of native plants and animals in NSW alone. They also impact on the price of food, human health through allergies and asthma, recreational activities and the NSW economy.
There are simple things you can do to help reduce the major impacts of weeds, and limit their spread
Early detection and surveillance offer the most strategic and cost effective form of weeds management. Early detection of weeds increases the likelihood that control will be successful and reduces costs as infestations can be treated when they are less extensive.
You can help with early detection of weedy plants by knowing what to look for, where to look, when to look, and who to contact.
