NT: Turbina Eradication

Conduct surveying, treatment and monitoring of turbina infestations, particularly along the Barron River and other waterways.

Why it is important?

Turbina is an invasive vine weed which has the potential to smother mature trees and affect large areas of native forest. Its impacts are particularly severe in areas of narrow riparian vegetation, where it can completely dominate the vegetation, pulling down mature trees and smothering natural regeneration.
