In August–September 2016, Seqwater will be removing Chinese celtis trees growing in the road reserve along part of Dayboro Road, Rush Creek.

Caring for our catchments is one of the best ways to protect water quality and the security of our drinking water supply in South East Queensland. Chinese celtis is a declared weed species in Queensland. It is a fast-growing, deciduous tree that forms dense infestations along creek banks and throughout catchment areas, preventing native riparian vegetation from regenerating.

Weed removals will start in late-August 2016 and take about two weeks to complete, subject to weather conditions and other unexpected delays. 

Working hours are between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday. Equipment will include small forest mulchers, wood chippers, chainsaws, brushcutters, trucks and utility vehicles.

Traffic management will be in place on Dayboro Road during the work.
