Golden Crownbeard - Weed

Published on Thursday, 14 September 2023 at 9:05:50 AM

This is an aggressive weed that displaces native vegetation and is toxic to stock and other animals.

We are currently in peak flowering and seeding season. So it is important to stop any further spread of this weed.

The Shire is currently actively removing the Golden Crownbeard from known public property.

As a community, we need your help, to work together to keep our biodiversity and nature-scapes, pest free.

We need your help!

If this weed is found on your property please see the below best practices to help stop the spread throughout our community.

Best Practice:

Pull weed from ground ensuring its roots are intact and removed from the soil.

Collect weed, roots and seeds in a garbage bag and ensure that its fully sealed. It can either be disposed in general waste or, we also encourage drying and burning the weed in a small personal fire.
