Parks and trees pesticide use

In This Section

Throughout Woollahra we maintain over 80ha of parks and thousands of trees. We use pesticides to treat weeds, termites and other pathogens.

Council has adopted a Pesticide Use Notification Plan 2018-2023 (PDF). The aim of this plan is to meet the community’s general right to know about pesticide applications made to outdoor public places that are owned or controlled by public authorities.

The plan allows members of the community to take action to avoid contact with pesticides, if they wish.
