Weed Management

Weeds can mean different things to different people or in different areas, but generally they can be described as plants growing outside their natural environment with an adverse impact on the economy, environment or local community. Within the Albury Council area weeds are one of the major threats to our unique environment and agricultural industries.

AlburyCity is committed to the ongoing management of the risks posed by weeds. To carry out this task we support an extensive weeds program which involves inspections of private and public lands, priority weed spraying programs, organisation of community weed control days and the use of spray and environmental contractors to meet seasonal demands.

For further information on weed management or your duties as a land manager please contact AlburyCity’s Biosecurity Weeds Officer on 02 6023 8111.
