New South Wales is a large state with several different climatic zones. The area is home to an interesting and diverse flora and the identification of 27 invasive urban plants is meant to represent those of greatest concern to the state. It is important to remember that an invasive plant in neighbouring Queensland may not be invasive in the less tropical climate of NSW and vice versa. It is prudent to seek sound local advice before making plant selection.

New South Wales is home to many significant national parks and state forest areas. It is of paramount importance that sound plant advice is sought before planting adjacent to these sensitive areas. Consideration must be given to appropriate plant choice as birds and other animals can distribute seeds into nearby bush-land and rainforest fringes causing immeasurable destruction of natural habitat.
