SHIRE of Mundaring will start woody weed removal on verges.
It will include the removal of the interstate Acacia species and Tagasaste.
Shire President David Lavell said removing the weeds was important for preserving native species and reducing fire hazards.
“Weeds are often introduced species which threaten our native flora and can reduce habitat for fauna,” he said.
“These weeds can also grow to form heavy thickets causing an increased fire risk on many properties.”
Cr Lavell said while the weed removal may leave some verges visually ‘barer’, the work was essential to ensure longevity of native plants and animals and to keep the community safe.
“The work is being carried out to increase survival of native species and reduce fire risks,” he said.
