Guide for Roadside Vegetation

Native vegetation is protected by law in South Australia. Less than 30 percent of native vegetation remains in South Australia's agricultural areas, with some regions lower than 10 percent! Only native vegetation in a fire affected area can be interfered with and only subject to permit conditions.

This fact sheet provides most of the details you will need but please visit environment.sa.gov.au if you require more information about native veg.
