Evergreen, multi-stemmed tree < 15 m tall. Leaves are oval and < 12 cm long. Flowers are borne in an enclosed inflorescence (synconium) during summer. Fruit is yellow/red and < 2 cm in diameter.
To help protect our environment:
Rock walls, graves, rocky outcrops, cliffs, scrub, open coastal forest, epiphytic on palms and rough barked trees.
Seeds dispersed by birds and possibly mammals.
Reduces above-ground biomass of forests and alters vegetation structure. May affect frugivore communities by providing food resource to possums, feral pigs and rodents.
Follow up treated areas 3 times per year. Encourage natural regeneration of native plants or replant treated areas where possible after 2-3 treatments to establish dense ground cover and minimise reinvasion.
CAUTION: When using any herbicide or pesticide please read the label thoroughly to ensure that all instructions and safety requirements are followed.
