Weed control and management services

Effective weed management for government departments and private industry

Territory Weed Management has the capability to perform large scale weed management throughout Northern and Central Australia and beyond.

About our weed management service

In addition to maintaining compliance with the Weeds Management Act our service helps to:

  • prevent damage to infrastructure
  • reduce fire risk
  • enhance safety, visibility, and accessibility

We use the right techniques and herbicides to match the requirements of each project and are experts in targeting specific species of weeds with minimal soil disturbance, minimising the chance of erosion and growth of other weeds. Maintaining the integrity of the soil makes weed control cost effective because it enhances grass vegetation.

We oversee a Parkinsonia weed control program that covers over 1000 km2 of Lake Woods and its catchment in the centre of the Northern Territory. Territory Weed Management have provided the majority of weed control services for this program since it started in 2009. Murray runs a professional crew and is able to tailor his services to our needs. Our monitoring shows just how effective his work is on the ground. We can rely on him to deliver, but also to let us know if and when problems arise. He provides us with GPS tracklogs and diary records of all works and participates in planning each year.

Common weeds we manage

We typically manage declared and noxious weeds throughout Northern and Central Australia. Common among them are Gamba Grass, Mission grass, Parkinsonia, and Mimosa pigra Woody Weeds.

Gamba Grass Management

Gamba Grass is a declared noxious weed under the Weeds Management Act. Originally introduced as a pasture species, it has proven highly invasive if not management properly. Gamba Grass creates a high fuel load and can result in intense fires that can damage and destroy commercial infrastructure and destroy local plant biodiversity.

Woody Weed Management

Woody Weeds can damage commercial infrastructure, such as easements on pipelines, reduce visibility and restrict access to remote areas.

Parkinsonia Weed Management

Considered one of the worst weeds in Australia, due to being highly invasive, Parkinsonia can cause extensive economic and ecological damage. Dense infestations can cost landholders through decreasing access to stock watering points and making mustering more difficult. Preventing the spread of Parkinsonia is the most cost effective method of management.

Our process

All work is scoped in consultation with the client and covers the timeline, costing, and logistics of the project as well as the weed control techniques that will be used. Our team will provide recommendations and advice throughout this process to ensure the right solution is being implemented.

Throughout the project we maintain a high level of communication. Both verbal and written reporting is provided to update the client on the status of our weed control operations.

Our extensive knowledge of local areas and vegetation means we’re able to effectively plan the right way to perform weed control services to suit your requirements. We assess the blocks of land within the scope of the project and prioritise our operations to ensure that control measures are carried out while access is available and before the weeds have a chance to set seed.
