Japanese Knotweed

One of the most well known of the invasive non-native species is Japanese knotweed. 

Did You Know?

  • It can grow up to 10cm a day, reaching 2m in height. The rhizomes of each plant can spread 7m in width and 2m in depth.
  • Japanese knotweed can delay or prevent your house or property sale, make acquiring mortgages difficult, and in some circumstances, obtaining a household or business insurance arduous.
  • It is incredibly difficult to remove and needs professional attention.
  • If left untreated, it can cause costly damage to your property.
  • If knowingly left to spread, it can create unfriendly and expensive legal battles with neighbouring properties.

How does the treatment work? 

Once you contact our team, we will arrange a site visit to view your invasive species. We will then be able to discuss your options.

We can arrange a site-specific management plan by conducting a site survey. The management plan will detail the course of action specifically tailored to your property and needs.
