Without effective weed control the remnant's health and viability will decline and future regeneration works will increase exponentially. Many weed species are responsible for the degradation of the Big Scrub remnants. Madeira vine is the most destructive due to its extremely efficient reproductive system, very rapid growth, heavy weight and capacity to blanket even large trees.
It can reduce healthy rainforest to a stand of vine-draped poles within one to two decades. Privet effectively invades the understorey, dominates the midstorey, and covers the forest floor, displacing native species. Wanderer forms a thick mat, effectively inhibiting the germination of rainforest seedlings.

The funds are used to engage professional rainforest regenerators who work in the remnants to remove weeds and facilitate natural regeneration of the rainforest. The rainforest regenerators are able to distinguish between native rainforest species and species of weeds and are highly skilled in weed control techniques.
