Woody Weed Control Workshop

A woody weed is a tree or shrub that has established and thrived in a area outside its natural range. They can have serious impacts on the natural environment by altering the diversity and structure of bushlands, causing local extinction of native flora, replacing food and habitat sources for native fauna and increase fire risks. This workshop will provide a regional and local perspective on the impact and management of woody weeds, and will be of value to anyone interested in managing weeds in bushland areas.
