Priority and Environmental Weeds

Priority Weeds

Priority weeds are those that have been determined and assessed to cause severe economic loss to agriculture and significantly impact our natural and recreational environments. Listed below are the priority weeds commonly found in the Hinchinbrook Region. For more information on each weed, simply click on the name to open its relevant factsheet or contact Council's Biosecurity Team on 4776 4740.


Environmental Weeds

Environmental weeds are plants that invade native ecosystems and adversely affect the survival of indigenous flora and fauna. They can be foreign plants, accidentally or intentionally introduced to Australia, or they can be native plants that have become weedy due to inappropriate management or simply because they are outside of their normal range. 

Environmental weeds may have significant economic and social impacts, as well as environmental impacts, such as a reduction in biodiversity, excess costs of control, impacts on landscapes and recreational activities, degradation of water quality and increased risks of fire.

Listed below are the environmental weeds commonly found in the Hinchinbrook Region. For more information on each weed, simply click on the name to open its respective factsheet or contact Council's Biosecurity Team on 4776 4740.
