JAPANESE KNOTWEED REMOVAL
As Japanese Knotweed Specialists, we do far more than simply clear invasive weeds from your sites, we restore natural terrestrial and freshwater habitats, so native species of flora and fauna can regenerate in their optimum environment.
Animal species we have supported include:
With conservation of the natural environment at the heart of everything we do, we’re proud to have completed habitat projects for residential and commercial developments, renewable energy sites, utilities projects, major infrastructures, waste operations, rural sectors and many other initiatives.
A Phase 1 habitat survey, also referred to as Phase 1 ecology survey or wildlife survey, is the industry standard when classifying and mapping British wildlife habitats, often for the purpose of conservation when new developments or construction projects are proposed, to support a planning application.
Following Joint Nature Conservation Committee (JNCC) guidance, we can carry out an ecology survey for your site. We map the natural and semi-natural habitats, recording plant species and other wildlife, using colour coding which allows speedy visual assessment of the distribution and extent of each habitat type and feature, accompanied by a brief description.
With a phase 1 habitat or ecology survey, we can:
Obviously, obtaining ecological information at the earliest opportunity in the design phase of a project is helpful, however, vegetation and other wildlife may not show itself in winter months. To save time and reduce cost, factoring in optimum habitat survey periods from the beginning will allow you to streamline scheduling for your proposed development
