Commercial Removal Solutions

Commercial Japanese Knotweed Removal.

In addition to treating Japanese knotweed on private property, we offer commercial Japanese knotweed removal and treatment services for a range of commercial clients including developers and builders. We understand, when dealing with commercial sites, that time can be a restricting factor that can result in a three-year treatment plan not being viable. Therefore, we offer a range of alternative options for when you need an instant result.

Excavation and Removal

What other measures does Japanese Knotweed Expert put in place?

We know that, when dealing with Japanese knotweed on a development site, there can be many other implications to the site including the risk of further contamination.

In order to make the removal of the weed as stress free as possible, and give you peace of mind, we put a number of steps in place whilst working on site:

  • Production of all relevant risk assessments and details of control measures to mitigate the risks.
  • Erection of temporary fencing to prevent any further contamination of the site.
  • Perform excavations to assess the spread of the Japanese knotweed roots.
  • Placement of signs to warn of the Japanese knotweed and avoid unauthorised access to the area.
  • Prevent any vehicular access to the area to prevent further contamination.
  • Power wash the tyres and body of any vehicle that has access to the restricted area.
  • Provide a “clerk of works” to oversee and control the treatment or removal of the Japanese knotweed.


By putting these measures in place, we can keep the risk of further contamination to a minimum and reduce the impact of the Japanese knotweed removal on your site.


Land Remediation Relief

Land remediation relief is an allowance that provides tax relief to commercial property sectors, including property investors and developers. It can allow you to claim up to 150% tax relief on the cost of the commercial Japanese knotweed removal or treatment. It can also be claimed any time up to three years after the removal. For more information, speak to your accountant who will be able to advise you.
