Removal & Treatment of Invasive Weeds
As well as Japanese knotweed our staff are trained to identify and effectively treat or manage other Invasive Weeds. As some plants are poisonous or can cause harmful reactions on contact, especially in sunlight the training sessions always include health and safety.
Invasive Weeds Legislation
Legislation and government directives place a growing emphasis to control the spread of invasive plants in the UK. As a result, we are seeing increasing requirements for other invasive weed control work.
There are many plants that are known to be invasive. These include non-native species that have been introduced from other countries and can spread, causing damage to the environment, the economy, our health, and the way we live. We can identify and professionally control or remove these species.
Certain non-native invasive plant species are listed in Section 14, 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.
