Shire of Northam Verges Policy

Weed Control And Tree Pruning

The Shire of Northam staff undertake an annual weed spraying program on road verges throughout the Shire. These works are undertaken for noxious weed control, fire prevention, visibility and drainage maintenance. Other noxious weeds are sprayed on an as required basis. Residents may apply to the Chief Executive Officer to exempt their verges from the spraying program providing they give a commitment to maintain their verges and keep them free of noxious weeds.

The Shire of Northam engages a Contractor to remove vegetation under powerlines and for selective prunings.

For trees touching power lines on your verge, please contact Engineering Services. If they are touching the power lines in your yard, it is your resposibility to engage an approved contractor to complete the works.

For further information contact Engineering Services on 9622 6100 or email records@northam.wa.gov.au.
