Invasive Plant Species Control

Invasive Plant Species Control

We use a variety of control techniques: cutting, pulling, grazing, light deprivation, stem injection, stump treatment and foliar spraying.

  • Monitoring of sites and advice on a recommended treatment program.
  • Single treatments or a schedule of treatments.
  • A report of work completed and an herbicide record sheet.

We work to the latest best industry standards for herbicide treatment of invasive plants.

Species treated (Common name/Scientific name):

  • Rhododendron/Rhododendron ponticum.
  • Japanese knotweed/Fallopia japonica.
  • Himalayan balsam/Impatiens glandulifera
  • Himalayan honeysuckle/Leycesteria formosa.
  • Spotted laurel/Acuba japonica.
  • Buddleia/Buddleja davdii.

We carry out invasive plant control within the national park, for local council countryside and planning services and for the construction industry.
