The Shire of Donnybrook Balingup is responsible for the control of pests and weeds on Shire-managed lands. There are many common weeds in the Shire; usually comprised of garden escapees or agricultural pests. Some have grown unattended, others have entered the Shire using various methods of transportation, such as animals, vehicles, wind, and water flowing across the landscape; even shoes and clothing can contribute.


There are several invasive species that are currently being controlled by the Shire, using various methods to manage the impacts these organisms have on our landscape. This weed management review aims to summarise the various methods of weed control that are carried out on public lands within the Shire of Donnybrook Balingup and assess their effectiveness in comparison to other available methods. This report outlines the responsibility regarding weed control, common weeds found in the Shire and the process of prioritisation of weeds, and a comparison of methods commonly used.
