Removal of Japanese Knotweed in Smethwick
With its heart shaped, deceiving green leaves and tall ‘beautiful’ red stems, you would not think that Japanese Knotweed would be such a cause for concern across the UK! The weed can grow up to 20cm a day in the growing season, which is terrifying. Therefore, removal of Japanese Knotweed in Smethwick and across the West Midlands is required.
Japanese Knotweed has an unbelievably invasive nature and tends to undermine man-made structures like buildings and hard-standing walls. Any structures that are built on Japanese Knotweed infested land are at a substantial risk of structural damage due to the roots being able to grow a tremendous 3 metres deep. This can be particularly problematic to new home-buyers, home-sellers and even the likes on construction companies.
It is not illegal to have it on your land, but it becomes a problem when it begins to spread onto someone else’s land; this is under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981.
