Coordinated blackberry control efforts have started
in Gippsland’s prime
dairy region.



The Wellington District Blackberry Taskforce continues to develop resources that support community blackberry control.

This year it produced a ‘tips and traps’ fact sheet for landowners in the Gippsland region tackling blackberry along the Thompson, Macalister and Avon rivers.
It also launched a Facebook page to share information on blackberry control approaches.

A good turnout to the group’s annual community information day was achieved with strong local media support and a Dow Chemicals representative attending to provide expert information.

Raising awareness of the responsibilities that landowners have in treating blackberry along riverbanks continued in partnership with Southern Rural Water and Wellington Shire Council.
