Japanese Knotweed eradication and control

Japanese Knotweed

At H.I.S we can ensure that the most common invasive species of weed to be found in the UK, especially Japanese Knotweed can be eradicated using a range of techniques.. Our experienced team can develop and deliver ‘in situ’ treatment programmes for Japanese knotweed, in addition to being able to devise and implement plans for the instant removal of all invasive weed species. Our innovative techniques in knotweed eradication manage to balance the timescales on the project with the all-important cost factor. This is exemplified through our ability to control the volume of material that needs to be removed from the site – our techniques in Japanese knotweed soil screening will isolate any contaminated material, keeping the amount of material that leaves the site to a minimum, or use cell burial treatment methods, which can help to significantly reduce the overall costs involved with the eradication of Japanese knotweed.

Giant Hogweed and Knotweed Removal

Giant Hogweed – We devise our strategies to effectively control and manage this poisonous species that is able to cause blistering, serious burns and, in some cases, may even lead to blindness.

Giant Hogweed Eradication and control

Giant hogweed is on the Environment Agency’s top ten list of invasive species marked for containment and removal. The sap produced by the plant contains a toxic chemical which can be damaging to the skin. Giant hogweed can also pose a threat to other plants as well, so it should really be tackled and removed before any long-term damage can be caused as a result. Due to its potentially devastating effects on buildings and the environment, it is advisable to tackle giant knotweed with a solution that has proved to be effective. Here at H.I.S., we are experts in the removal of giant knotweed and can offer clients a tailored programme to tackle this issue.

Himalayan Balsam

Himalayan Balsam – Our team can successfully prevent this plant from spreading, where it has the potential to overwhelm rivers, plus other rural and urban areas.

Himalayan Balsam control

Himalayan balsam is a large plant consisting of a long green stem as well as small, pink, hooded flowers. Due to the plant’s aggressive growth, this can often result in it taking over native plants. For this reason, people are always looking at the various ways it can be eradicated. With an effective method, such as those utilised by H.I.S., the fast growth of Himalayan balsam can be stopped, while your native plants can be kept safe.
