Tasmania is home to an interesting and diverse flora. Many microclimates exist within the state with considerable diversity in rainfall. A plant considered invasive in one area may be of little concern in another. The plants identified as invasive urban plants in Tasmania are those of greatest concern to the state as a whole. It is prudent to seek sound local advice before making plant selection.

Tasmania is home to many significant national parks and world heritage areas. It is of paramount importance that sound plant advice is sought before planting adjacent to these sensitive areas. Consideration must be given to appropriate plant choice as birds and other animals can distribute seeds into nearby bush-land and natural areas causing immeasurable destruction of natural habitat.
