Identifying Japanese  Knotweed in Oxfordshire  

The first step to treating suspected Japanese knotweed is to correctly identify it. Often mistaken for bamboo or other garden shrubs, this highly invasive weed can often go unnoticed while it spreads onto neighbouring properties, leading to nuisance claims issued against landowners. The sooner knotweed is identified, the quicker appropriate action can take place to remove the invasive plant from your land.

At Japanese Knotweed Specialists, we support you with positive identification of knotweed followed by a robust plan for its treatment or removal. We’re fully accredited by the PCA and are part of their Invasive Weed Group, the RICS, and more, so you can be confident in the professional service we offer.

How Is Japanese  Knotweed Removed in Oxfordshire?  

Depending on the specific needs of each project, we use herbicides such as foliage spraying and stem injection to assist in preventing the spread of Japanese knotweed. If required, we will then excavate and remove the plant from your land before disposing of it safely.

The treatment we use will always take into account the intensity of the infestation, the speed at which it needs to be removed, and the ecological condition of the site.
