JAPANESE KNOTWEED REMOVAL
You can burn Japanese Knotweed, however, we recommend using a professional service such as our own to remove and dispose of this highly invasive plant. Failure to correctly remove the Japanese Knotweed plant after burning could lead to the infestation returning.
Burning is one of our proven methods of Japanese knotweed removal, and it is under carried as controlled incineration, usually at the affected site.
Japanese knotweed is only effectively incinerated when the plant is absent of moisture – the strands of the plant need to be fully dried out. Once this has happened, then the plant can be burnt, ensuring that there is no chance of it regrowing. It’s important to ensure that the plant has been fully burnt and destroyed otherwise the Japanese Knotweed infestation could return in the future.
Our preferred Japanese Knotweed incineration product is the Burnwell micro incinerator, supplied by Kingwell Holdings. This mobile burner is hard on knotweed, but easy on the environment, and produces less noise, vibration, dust, and engine emissions.
All of our incineration work follows our expertly managed knotweed removal and treatment process. Once the incineration has taken place, we will ensure that the affected site is monitored – here at Japanese Knotweed Specialists we not only professionally remove invasive plants, but we are dedicated to ensuring that the plant will not return to the original site. We will always make sure that the site is left clean, tidy and that all waste is appropriately removed to avoid future Japanese Knotweed infestations.
