Japanese Knotweed Removal in the UK

Japanese Knotweed is a seriously invasive weed, making it highly difficult to control and eradicate weed growth. To manage and control this form of plantation, it takes specialist knowledge, experienced methods and equipment.

Japenese Knotweed

Japanese Knotweed has been illegal to grow since the [Scottish Wildlife Act 1981]. Even if your not growing it, it is considered a criminal offence to cause the growth of it. This could be something you have done, unknowingly and not intentionally, that has caused its rapid growth. So, it’s always best to get our expert opinion and professional analysis in person to deal with the problem sooner rather than later, as it can spread quickly and at an alarming rate.
