Non-native invasive plant species are listed in Schedule 9, part II of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. In the main, it lists species that are already established in the wild, but which continue to pose a conservation threat to native biodiversity and habitats, such that further releases should be regulated (under Section 14 of the Act).

There are other native invasive species such as Field Horsetail which are not listed on the Wildlife and Countryside Act. However these also pose a significant problem to home owners and developers alike. Use the image links below to find out more about various invasive weeds.
