Why? Scotch Broom…..

-          Displaces native vegetation/species.

-          Reduces biodiversity and forage for wildlife.

-          Alters the fundamental nature of habitats by converting it from open systems to dense shrub lands.

-          Contains very flammable oils which can pose a fire hazard.
