JUST IN: Tea plant on the manning in Senegal. About 60 kilometers of Senegal tea plant have been found scattered along the manning river from Gloucester to Wingham. This Senegal tea plant is a new and emerging weed. The plant is now a class one declared species in NSW and is on the alert list for environmental weeds that threaten biodiversity and cause other environmental damage.
(Senegal tea plant on the manning)Terry Inkson, midcoast council's strategic weeds biosecurity officer said "surveying and management of Senegal tea infestations is extremely difficult due to accessibility limitations as the plant often invades nooks and crannies in the shallows of riparian and wetland areas." The team at MidCoast Council has secured funding to assist in the management of known Senegal Tea infestations until 2018 and are continually on the lookout for new infestations, with monitoring and surveys ongoing.
