How to deal with Knotweed


Knotweed thru concrete

A special free-to-attend business seminar on the problems caused by Japanese Knotweed is being held in St Austell next week (March 10).

Discovering Japanese knotweed on commercial and residential property could have serious financial, legal and technical implications.

Whether you are buying or selling, developing or facing legal action, knowing exactly what you are dealing with is essential.

Environet, ones of the UK’s longest-established Japanese knotweed eradication companies, is running a seminar on March 10 to bring businesses up-to-date with how to solve the typical problems associated with discovering this highly invasive species.

“There is a real problem with Japanese knotweed here in the south west,” said Emily Grant, regional manager for the area.

“With this roadshow we are hoping to meet professionals who come across this non-native and damaging species in the course of their work. Japanese knotweed will always have the last laugh if it isn’t treated correctly and a big part of my job here is to make sure that surveyors, estate agents, solicitors, project managers, architects, main contractors, developers, land owners and consultants across the region know exactly what they are up against.”
