A network of Landscape Officers located across the region ensure early detection and rapid response to pest incursions. Landscape Officers assist landholders with their pest plant and animals management and ensure landholders are fulfilling their obligations under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019.
The Act states that it is the responsibility of the landholder to control pest plants and animals on their property. They are also responsible for the sale or movement of pest plant and animals. The Act allows landscape boards to recover the cost of controlling roadside pest plants and pest animals from adjoining landholders
Landscape Officers are here to help and pride themselves on their knowledge, expertise and strong relationships with local landholders, industry and the community. They can assist with a variety of pest management issues. Please note, some services provided may be fee-for-service.
Landscape Officers can provide:
- Information such as weed identification or explaining your responsibilities
- Advice on pest control such as best eradication methods or best time of year to tackle a pest.
- Publications and factsheets
- Carrying out compliance activities.
If you need assistance with pest plant or animal control, please contact our Landscape Officers or call 08 87351177.
