The control of unwanted and invasive plant species can result in many benefits to the wider community.

By controlling unwanted vegetation we can help:

  • Increase the diversity of native species and animals
  • Promote healthy ecosystems
  • Beautify the community
  • Improve conditions for recreational activities
  • Promote health benefits
  • Maintain the condition of assets such as roadways and footpaths

The team at New Zealand Biosecurity Services has attained industry related qualifications and has accumulated numerous years' experience in the early recognition and control of unwanted plant species and unsightly, sometimes damaging vegetative growth, along with the design, implementation and ongoing maintenance programmes of revegetation planting plans.

We are conversant with the requirements of various Regional Pest Management Strategies under the Biosecurity Act 1993 and able to consistently meet conditions imposed in Resource Consents.

Vegetation Control

Written by

While not all plants are subject to the requirements of a Regional Pest Management Strategy, many still have a negative impact on the environment. These plants can impact on land and water recreational activities, pose health and safety risks and can affect the aesthetic value of the landscape.

New Zealand Biosecurity Services is a firm believer that no one solution fits every weed control problem. The philosophy of implementing an integrated approach to pest management means you will receive the most appropriate, effective and environmentally sensitive solution to your particular problem.

Our control methods may include one or more of the following;

  • Mechanical means such as chain-sawing, scrub-cutting, hand-weeding or mowing
  • Chemical control using the least toxic and selective chemicals, applied at the optimum time
  • Biological control which promote natural processes in the fight against weed development
  • Vegetative planting and maintenance to suppress weed development and restore the natural environment.

Pest Plant Control

Written by

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.
