Priority invasive plants

Learn more about the region's invasive plants identified as priorities in our Biosecurity Plan.

Through our biosecurity planning process, we assessed all of the invasive plants known to occur in our region. This helped to identify the species that should be prioritised through our invasive plant management. A number of factors were considered such as:

  • the potential impacts of each species; and
  • its likelihood of further spread if left unmanaged
  • the management tools available.

By identifying priority species, we are able to focus control activities to maximise their effectiveness.

Further information (including images, descriptions and control methods) can be found by following the links to the Biosecurity Queensland website.
