Woody Weed

Woody WeedWoody is an invasive weed who has escaped into NZ. Weedbusters try to keep him under control, and use him as an example of the threat weeds pose to the environment.

Woody is a loveable rogue who spreads himself around the countryside (like any successful weed!) startling children and harassing wildlife. Dressed in bright purple and green, he makes an impressive sight for any unsuspecting passers-by.
