Roadside Targeted Weed Spraying
Scotland Island November 23
Northern Beaches Council Invasives Species Unit is targeting priority weed species along the roadside of Scotland Island.
The works will take place Thursday November 23, 2023 between 8am and 2pm (weather permitting) and will involve targeting spot-spraying of Madeira Vine, Morning Glory and Cats Claw Creeper using Glyphosate-based herbicide in combination with Metsol under PERMIT 9907. For a recent detailed study on Glyphosate, see https://www.aabr.org.au/portfolio-items/get-up-to-date-on-glyphosate/
The works are part of a long-term plan that aim to:
· Prevent rutting out of roads due to improved drainage
· Prevent overhang of noxious weeds
· Allow for more desirable native species to grow
· Minimise the need for slashing along the waterline leading to less weed spread
During this time, signage will be erected and we recommend residents and members of the public take notice of the signs and where possible ensure they (and domestic animals) avoid the treatment area.
We apologise for any inconvenience.
