Pest plants

Southland is a stunning place to live with a variety of landscapes that are, or could become, affected by weeds that have jumped the garden fence.

Many weeds have been brought into New Zealand as garden plants, but have escaped into the wild where they grow and spread. Once these weeds become established in natural landscapes their removal can be costly and time-consuming.
