This raw aerial photography covering 23,000 ha of the Desert Road stretch of SH 1 running through the Central Plateau is provided to members of the Desert Rd Invasive Legume Control Group so that they can locate plants and prioritize areas where ground control is required.
Broom produces chemicals that prevent native seedlings establishing and then forms dense thickets able to shade out all other regenerating plants. This can occur from the road edge right to the snow line.
Estimated image resolution = 0.4 m
Broom density has been classified within 4 ha (200 x 200 m) tiles as either absent (transparent), low density (< 1 plant/ha = yellow), moderate density (<10 plants/ha = orange) or high density (>10 plants/ha = red).
