Although our weed trial is focussed on Ragwort, it seems steam weeding could work on a range of weed species
Steam spikes ( availible from Weedtechnics) are for killing weeds with deep or extensive root systems so I thought I would give it a go on one of our more serious waterway weeds, the Weeping Willow tree (Salix x pendulina).
Below is a short clip I made over the past 9 months documenting its success on a small Willow sapling in a gravel creek bed. The tree in question die after 1 treatment lasting about 3 minutes.
We would love to see how chem free steam control of aquatic weeds would work on a larger scale.

This article outlines the risk of myrtle rust, and steps you can take not to spread it any faster than it can manage on its own. Another biosecurity fail.
Travellers could inadvertently spread a fungus that is a threat to as many as 380 native flora species.
