Invasive Native Species
Invasive native scrub is thickening and encroaching native trees and shrubs. This phenomenon is a serious issue in the central-west and western regions of NSW and other parts of NSW.
Invasive native scrub can have a serious adverse impact on habitats, wider landscape health, communities and farming operations.
Invasive native scrub is formally classified as:
- A plant species that invades vegetation communities where it has not been known to occur previously OR a species that regenerates densely following natural or artificial disturbance, and
- The invasion and/or dense regeneration of the species results in change of structure and/or composition of the vegetation community, and
- The species is within its natural geographic range or distribution.
