Is Japanese Knotweed really a problem in Yorkshire?
Yes, it’s a problem – you only have to read the Yorkshire Post to learn exactly how much of a problem it is. Here’s one of their headlines from June 10th, 2018: “If you have Japanese knotweed in or around your garden you can forget any chance of a quick sale.” An alarming statistic is that it can devalue your property by up to 40% and potential buyers will be unable to get funding for a mortgage until eradication by a professional company like ours is agreed.
The impact of this invasive plant is devastating. If you have an infestation, Japanese Knotweed removal in Yorkshire is crucial. The plant may grow as much as 40cm in a single week in spring and summer, and one rhizome can spread up to 7m underground. When you realise that up to 250 shoots grow in a single square metre patch, then that’s the measure of the dire effects caused by this resilient and destructive plant. Avoid the risk of damage to drains, roads, pavements, paths, driveways and walls, whether yours or your neighbours’, by contacting us to arrange eradication.
Eradicating Japanese Knotweed in Yorkshire
We use three diverse levels of treatment depending on how bad the infestation is, how quickly its removal is required and whether or not the site is highly ecologically-sensitive.
In some cases, our experts will spray foliage and inject stems with herbicide. In other cases, we erect barriers to prevent the spread of Japanese Knotweed. If time for eradication is of the essence, we remove the plant by excavation.
We operate not only in and around Yorkshire, but also nationally around the rest of the UK including London and the Midlands, South West England and South East England, Wales and Scotland.
