“To provide the most professional and comprehensive weed and vegetation management service available.” – Chris Jones, General Manager – SPVM

SPVM Weed and Vegetation Division offers a coordinated approach to weed and vegetation management to meet clients’ needs.Using a variety of approved treatment methods to provide a cohesive approach to weed management, we minimize weed resistance and provide flexibility in diverse environments.

Weed Management

Weeds are, by definition, resilient and adaptive. Wherever there is exposed soil, weeds will inevitably establish themselves.

SPVM can assist with controlling all unwanted vegetation with motorised spray units, quad bikes, all-terrain vehicles and pump packs, in:

–       high risk and sensitive areas such as gas fields, road reserves and National Parks.
–       parks, gardens, roads, drains, pipelines, fence lines

When weeds and vegetation are neglected they can become ugly and obstructive. There are many reasons to control weeds and vegetation including:

  •       Protection of valuable assets and infrastructure
  •       Fire hazard reduction
  •       Public and personal safety
  •       An obligation to eradicate poisonous seeds. foliage and declared weeds
  •       Adding value to vacant lots
  •       Allowing access to land
  •       Neatness
Vegetation Management
Our vegetation management programme minimises the impact of unwanted or potentially damaging vegetation by using brush-cutters, chainsaws, zero-turn mowers and slashers to help control fire, unwanted incursion and to allow access to sites.
