    14180: Battling Bridal Creeper

    Remnant native bush existing on roadsides within these shires is the target of bridal creeper protection.
    Remnant native bush existing on roadsides within these shires is the target of bridal creeper protection.

    It takes a minimum of seven years to completely control a single bridal creeper plant. This project will continue a program that has been controlling bridal creeper on roadsides across the Shires of Katanning, Woodanilling, Wagin, Dumbleyung, and West Arthur for the last five years.

    In such a heavily cleared landscape roadside stands of remnant vegetation are considered of high biodiversity value. It is evident that the continuous spray program has been making a positive impact on infestation density and it is critical to keep the pressure up to ensure maximum coverage and impact.

    This project will continue to map and control infestations of bridal creeper (Asparagus asparagoides) on private and public land throughout the five shires. Private landholders with infestations close to assets are encouraged and informed on how to take action.
