Eradicating Japanese Knotweed in Stourbridge
Japanese Knotweed is now considered a headache plant for the exact same reason it was firstly popular for – its excessive growth. It can reach up to a colossal 3 metres by June, in the right conditions, but dies off in the Winter months. Therefore, it is always recommended to start eradicating Japanese Knotweed in Stourbridge as soon as possible! Call in the expert!
The plant begins life as a fleshy, red-tinged shoot with spade or heart shaped deep green leaves. It is a very resilient plant that can lay dormant for anything up to 20 years. Some of our clients have attempted DIY removal of Japanese Knotweed, to find only a couple of years later that it returns! That is why it is best to call the Expert, not only for your peace of mind, but to eradicate your Japanese Knotweed completely.
Local councils and the police now have the power to issue Community Protection Notices, under anti-social behaviour powers. These powers are to require someone to control or prevent the growth of Japanese Knotweed if they have it on their property or land.
This is due to the destructiveness of the plant, and the fact it can cause serious problems to communities. However, you do not need to fear such penalties when we are here to help in eradicating Japanese Knotweed in Stourbridge.
