Managing invasive plants on public sector land

Our services are specifically geared to work in these public surroundings, we have produced our own manual on keeping the public safe whilst operating.

The impact of invasive species on land around public sector buildings, especially those used by the public, or schools is vast, as amenity areas become overgrown and the risk of spread increases. Our team offers tailored solutions to detect, control, and eradicate plants such as Japanese knotweed, Himalayan balsam and the toxic Giant hogweed, safeguarding both people and property.

In addition to the quality service that you would expect from the leading expert, we go further by bringing even more to the table.
