Japanese Knotweed is an invasive species of weed that is resistant to most common methods of control and can even damage structures if it grows too close. Japanese Knotweed removal in Leicestershire is a large problem. It has been reported that more than 325 sites in Leicestershire have had a Japanese Knotweed problem. This was recorded by city council trees and woodlands manager Alan D’albe who describes the weed to be “highly invasive because it can re-root quickly from a tiny bit of stem”.
Japanese knotweed was first introduced into Britain by the Victorians as an ornamental plant. Little did they know that this interesting looking plant was actually a destructive weed that has since spread rapidly throughout Britain. Its destruction is so vast that in 1981 the Wildlife and Country Act made it an offence to introduce the Japanese Knotweed into wild spaces.
