Japanese Knotweed Treatment & Disposal

Japanese Knotweed is one of the most invasive plant species in the UK and Ireland. It is often found on wasteland, alongside roads and on riverbanks. Its root system (rhizome) can extend up to 7m from the plant and grow 3m deep making it extremely difficult to eradicate. The main concern with Japanese Knotweed is that it has the ability to damage foundations and structures, due to its relentless growth and ability to grow virtually anywhere.
