MADERIA VINE IS CURRENTLY FLOWERING THE OBI OBI VALLEY
It is established in many places along the verges of Obi Obi Rd from Baxter Creek Rd to number two crossing. Originally from South America, this vine relatively new to the valley invades road edges and waterways has the potential to smother rainforest shrubs and trees.
Maderia vine is a class 3 declared pest in Queensland.
Class 3 pests are established in Queensland and have, or could have, an adverse economic, environmental or social impact. The primary objective of Class 3 listing is to prevent sale, therefore preventing the spread of these pests into new areas.
Landholders are not required to control Class 3 plants unless their land is adjacent to an environmentally significant area and they are issued with a pest control notice. It is a serious offense to supply a Class 3 pest without a permit issued by Biosecurity Queensland.
