Pest plant of the month: Sydney Golden Wattle

Have you heard of the Sydney Golden Wattle?

The Sydney Golden Wattle is currently flowering and there are plenty of saplings around the region that we could be keeping an eye out for. It looks like a shrub or small tree with sharply angled, hairless or sparsely angled twigs.  

Why is this a pest?
Sydney Golden Wattle prevents native species from establishing. Its seeds are spread in soil and occasionally water movement, from waste places, old hedges and roadsides. It’s up to property owners to control these weeds as they are not covered under the Regional Pest Management Plan so it would be great to get everyone out looking for them and considering controlling any that might be growing.
