Invasive Species Week Info Hub

Welcome to our Invasives Weeks Special Information hub. During this 2021 Invasive Week, we plan to share and deliver a variety of videos, webinars, news and general content to help promote more awareness about invasive plants/weeds that affect both our urban & outdoor environments, while also trying and helping to empower both homeowners and professionals as to how you can best deal with them.

Whether you are a homeowner or a Construction/Property Professional, you will find a ‘hub’ of information available below to help guide, inform and educate you on all things associated with invasive weeds.
