Madeira vine (RPMP 2018)

Madeira vine.

Madeira vine (or Migonnette vine) is subject to a Sustained Control programme as part of the Regional Pest Management Plan 2018. It has a very limited distribution and density and the long term goal is to ensure the infestations are maintained at very low levels.

Marlborough District Council and/or the Department of Conservation will carry out all the control work required for this pest at no cost to the landowner. Sites are visited by biosecurity staff at regular intervals to ensure all infestations are controlled before they replicate, ensuring the infestations are maintained at very low levels.

Madeira vine is also an unwanted organism under the Biosecurity Act 1993 given it is on the National Pest Plant Accord list of species banned from sale, propagation, distribution or commercial display.
