Pest plants

Plant Swap Program

Identification of pest plants is not always easy. To assist land holders a Plant Swap Program has been launched in partnership with Bundaberg and District Landcare Association to help residents rid their yards of undesirable plants.

Residents who register for the Help Stop The Spread, Plant Natives Instead program and remove weeds are eligible to receive free native replacement plant vouchers.

The program targets specific pest plants including the Broad-leaved pepper, Brazilian cherry, Easter cassia, Yellow Bells, Asparagus Fern, Black-eyed Susan, Captain Cook tree, Guava, leucaena, Mother-of-millions and Ochna.

Residents interested in participating in the program can contact the Land Protection team to arrange an inspection and identification of targeted environmental weeds on their property.
