Abstract

The first statutory plan for athel pine was dated 2016 and gazetted on 22 March 2017. This 2021 review is the first review of the 2016 plan and will remain in force until 2027, 10 years from the commencement of the first athel pine plan. The next review of this weed management plan is required in 2024.The aim of this plan is to mitigate the damage caused by athel pine (Tamarix aphylla) in relation to, environmental, cultural and agricultural production values. This aim is based on athel pine being both a Class A (to be eradicated) and Class B (growth and spread to be controlled) weed in the Northern Territory under the Weeds Management Act 2001 (the Act). The Act is administered by authorised weed management officers in the Weed Management Branch, Department of Environment, Parks and Water Security (DEPWS). Objectives of this plan focus around achieving this aim.
