Spiny Broom - Flower Detail of this invasive weed in Australia

Many of our customers are involved with the management and control of weeds, particularly woody weeds in revegetation projects and weeds in urban areas such as council parks, botanic gardens and playground areas.

We’ve added some useful links to government sites and community organisations that can help with more information about identifiying and controlling weeds. Have some spare time? Why not get involved as a volunteer with one of your local groups such as Trees for Life!

The video above from Natural Resources, Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges offers practical information about controlling invasive woody weeds post-bushfire. Recently published in May 2020, their video features up-to-date information regarding which weedkillers are best suited, how and when to apply them for best results with minimal impact on the environment.
