Japanese Knotweed Treatment

Dealing with Japanese Knotweed

Highly invasive and aggressive weeds such as Japanese knotweed need specialist knowledge from qualified professional contractors to control and manage them. 

Japanese knotweed can have serious environmental and economic impacts. This plant is very aggressive and can devastate riparian systems, degrade native plant and wildlife habitat, and be a safety concern along roadways etc.

We use the safest solutions to tackle your knotweed problems.  Whilst we are happy to assist you and answer any of your questions Business Link also has more information and useful advice to help you in tackling this problem.  There are also more links below.
