Notes: Ospray ‘Rambo’ treated areas by spot spray application are not to be grazed or cut for
stock food for at least 14 days after application.

This is applied to council controlled areas as it is an effective herbicide for grass weed control and
will not kill other grass species such as Cocksfoot and Fescue when applied at recommended rates
thereby reducing the amount of bare ground in public environments.

The weed species controlled in this plan are part of the New England Weeds Authority’s program to
prevent the spread of Noxious Weeds and undesirable vegetation within the Guyra Shire area and to
maintain the roads and urban areas within a managed framework.

Definitions

Total Grass Control: Carried out around guideposts, guard rails and signage to prevent long grass
interfering with furniture visibility. On RTA roads this work is carried out as per RTA standards.

Eucalypt and Wattle Suckers control: Carried out along road verges, drainage lines and general
service areas to prevent visibility interference for road users. Small tree regrowth is targeted to
maintain these areas in their current condition.

Environmental Weeds: Species such as Privet, Cotoneaster, Firethorn and Hawthorn are treated as
part of the roadside maintenance program. These plants produce prolific amounts of small berries
that are spread by birds and foxes and have the potential to form dense roadside stands if left
unchecked.
