These are the six main weed 

species prevalent in the 

Stanthorpe Shire that compete 

with, and displace native plant 

species in natural habitats.  

They compete for resources 

such as light, nutrients and 

water, and create habitats 

for other weed species. They 

also contribute to high fuel 

loads adding to bush fire risk.  

To prevent the introduction 

of exotic weeds landholders 

should implement bushland 

management strategies that 

minimise earth disturbance.



The main methods of weed 

control are:

 



  Minimising large scale       

mechanical clearing

 



  Mowing and slashing

 



  Herbicide poisoning

 



  Burning 

 



  Weed matting and 

mulching

 



  Hand removal

If you need assistance 

identifying the most 

appropriate weed control 

method for your particular 

situation, please contact your 

local Landcare officer.
