A weed is any plant requiring intervention to reduce its effect on our environment, economy, human health and amenity. They compete with and often outperform our native plants causing a devastating effect on our natural bushland. Please report weeds in our parks and reserves to us for investigation. 

See Stop the Spread - Weeds of Sydney North and the NSW Weedwise App.

Should you have any enquiries or would like to report a weed sighting in the Northern Beaches local government area, please contact, or alternatively contact Council Customer Service on 1300 434 434 during normal business hours.
