There are over 700 introduced plant species in New Zealand, many of which can cause serious harm to our native environment, be an economic threat to farmers and horticultural producers, or threaten human health. A large number of these species are subject to controls and restrictions under Regional Pest Management Strategies under the Biosecurity Act 1993. These strategies place a requirement on landowners to control certain plants to prescribed standards.

Our industry qualified team is able to provide advice on meeting these requirements or implement a maintenance programme designed for your specific situation.

Some of the more familiar pest plant species you may encounter may include gorse, woolly nightshade, moth plant, ragwort, thistles, Old Man’s Beard and many others. Let us help.
