A noxious weed or injurious weed is a weed that has been designated by country, state, provincial, or national agricultural authority as one that is injurious to agricultural and/or horticultural crops, natural habitats and/or ecosystems, and/or humans or livestock.
It’s crucial to ensure that the removal and treatment of noxious weeds is done by experienced professionals so that the landholder is meeting all the relevant regulations.
Here at JK Cooper Tree Services, one of the services we offer is clearing of noxious weeds that need to be cleared before property development and to allow for the establishment of native vegetation. Failure to control Noxious Weeds may result in orders to control and or fines and or legal action.
Clearing of weeds such as Lantana can be done for environmental reasons and property development. We can help you with weed clearing and scrub removal.

Prevent the spread of weeds
Noxious weeds are a plant species that are under state or territorial restrictions. It’s crucial to ensure that the removal and treatment of noxious weeds is done by experienced professionals because they pose a serious threat to native species.
Where possible it’s best to act early on noxious weeds and prevent them from spreading. This is a much better way of dealing with such an issue than it is to deal with it once it has run rampant. There is information on weeds available from LGA’s such as:
