Council manages vegetation in parks and reserves using a number of vegetation management tools. In some instances this includes agrichemicals.

Agrichemical policy

Tauranga City Council’s Use of Toxic Agrichemicals for Vegetation Management Policy sets Council’s direction for the use of agrichemicals on Council-maintained land. Under the policy, the preference is for the use of non-chemical methods of vegetation control where practical. However, in some instances the use of toxic agrichemicals is necessary.
