This project covers the control of targeted weed species at Poona: guava (Psidium guajava) associated with feral pig control program; lantana (Lantana camara); giant rats tail grass (Sporobolus spp.); siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum); umbrella tree (Schefflera actinophylla); candle bush (Senna alata) and groundsel bush (Baccharis halimifolia).
The project provides an improvement in the stability and populations of native flora and fauna impacted by feral pigs and weeds, and an improvement in the native/natural diversity within ecosystems in the area.
