Declared Plants

Queensland

Declared or noxious weeds are those listed as 'Declared Plants' by any given state or territory government. In Queensland the declared plants fall into three categories; Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 and fines can be as high as $60 000 if you introduce, keep, release or sell these plants. The threefold aim of declared plant legislation is to prevent the introduction and establishment of new pest plants that may not be widely distributed in Queensland, to reduce the spread of new pest plants into areas of the state they are not currently evident, and to reduce the extent and spread of existing pest plant infestations.

In many cases the plants listed could be regarded as common plants from urban landscapes, including African Tulip Tree (Spathodea campanulata) and Singapore Daisy (Sphagneticola trilobata Syn. Wedelia trilobata)

Weeds of National Significance (WONS)

'Weeds of National Significance' (WONS) is a list of 20 invasive plants that have been determined by the Federal government in consultation with State government agencies. They are considered to be of significant national importance. Whilst not every WONS invasive plant is declared in all states and territories it would be prudent to ensure that you are aware of the plants on the list. The plants are not normally common in urban landscape situations but some were once common garden plants such as Lantana (Lantana camara).
