Tinana Creek water weed project and cats claw control
Woocoo Council (former)
Maryborough City Council (former)
FCRC - Community Environment Program
Case study type
The project was undertaken from approximately 2008 onwards. Surveying and works were also undertaken to reduce localised cat’s claw creeper (CCC) infestations along the creek and to reduce impact on ‘of concern’ RE 12.12.12 and Endangered 12.5.2.
Vegetation assessment, weed surveying, integrated pest management were carried out. Pest plants were harvested to break up rafts, sprayed and salvinia bio-control added. Flooding assisted removal.
Addition of bio-control to CCC and weed management.
