We have an in-house specialist team dealing with invasive weed eradication and weed control, used to dealing with both private and public sector projects.
We also have plenty of experience in dealing with non-native weed problems like Japanese knotweed (Fallopia Japonica – which can cause major structural damage to properties), giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam and a host of other common non-native weeds.
Tight legislation around Japanese knotweed means you need to know how to deal with this plant properly. Failure to acknowledge the correct methods of removal and containment can lead to the further spread of this invasive weed.
This could make you liable to a fine of up to £5,000 and/or 6 months imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine on indictment. This is listed on Section 14(2) of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 which states that “if any person plants or otherwise causes to grow in the wild any plant which is included in Part II of Schedule 9, he shall be guilty of an offence”.
It’s well worth getting this dealt with in the right way and Eco Site Solutions will help remove the invasive weed in a correct and environmentally contained manner whether you have a golf course, building structure, or project that is being affected by this problem.
