Invasive Species Surveys allow us to identify any non-native species which may be present on your site. 

The following are all non-native species which can be found in the UK: 

  • Japanese knotweed.
  • giant hogweed.
  • Himalayan balsam.
  • rhododendron ponticum.
  • New Zealand pigmyweed

Japanese knotweed is listed in Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. It is an offence to plant Japanese knotweed or cause it to grow in the wild. Japanese knotweed causes problems because it spreads so quickly and it is very difficult to get rid of.
