What is Japanese knotweed?
Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is fast growing invasive plant that can spread rapidly. In winter the plant dies back to ground level but by early summer new stems to over 2.1m high emerge from rhizomes deep underground outcompeting native plants. Japanese knotweed can sprout from very small sections of rhizomes. Under the provisions of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, it is an offence to cause Japanese knotweed to grow in the wild.
Telluric Land Remediation is experienced in the eradication of Japanese Knotweed and other invasive plant species. We will complete a thorough site survey for you, after which a solution will be proposed. The herbicide treatments that we use are approved by the Environment Agency, and our operators are fully trained in commercial pesticide use.
In environmentally sensitive locations, such as near watercourses, we use stem injection, which is more targeted than foliage spraying and therefore less risky to the environment and to neighbouring plants.
A case study on the eradication of Japanese knotweed on a large manufacturing site is available for viewing.
