Desert Road Broom (Cytisus scoparius) 2016

19 Feb 2018

This dataset was last updated on LRIS Portal on 19 Feb 2018.

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.
