Landscape Officers

A network of Landscape Officers located across the region ensure early detection and rapid response to pest incursions. Landscape Officers assist landholders with their pest plant and animals management and ensure landholders are fulfilling their obligations under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019.

The Act states that it is the responsibility of the landholder to control pest plants and animals on their property. They are also responsible for the sale or movement of pest plant and animals. The Act allows landscape boards to recover the cost of controlling roadside pest plants and pest animals from adjoining landholders

Landscape Officers are here to help and pride themselves on their knowledge, expertise and strong relationships with local landholders, industry and the community. They can assist with a variety of pest management issues. Please note, some services provided may be fee-for-service.

Our Landscape Officers are located across the Limestone Coast and are here to help landholders control declared pest plants and animals by providing:

• Weed identification support

• Support and advice for best practice pest plant and animal control methods and timing

• Fox and rabbit poison bait and bio-control supply

• Weed control services for priority declared pest plants*

• Equipment such as Canid Pest Ejectors and rabbit bait layers to assist with your fox and rabbit control

• Technical information, publications and fact sheets

• Support with organising a cooperative neighbourhood pest control programs

• Support for landholders to understand their obligations and responsibilities under the Landscape South Australia Act 2019.

Please call 08 8429 7550 to be put in touch with your Landscape Officer in your area or find the details below.
