There is a lot of scaremongering about Japanese Knotweed; unfortunately some companies and organisations try to exploit the ‘fear factor’ which surrounds the sometimes misunderstood problem.

 

At Tree Fella we take a practical, no-nonsense approach and discuss the issues with transparency.  Here are some important, quick pieces of information to keep in mind:

 

  • Japanese Knotweed being present on your property is a problem that requires action, but it is not ‘the end of the world’, as some might claim

 

  • Your house is extraordinarily unlikely to fall down because of Japanese Knotweed (This has been suggested by other parties to client’s who have contacted us, quite naturally feeling distressed)

 

  • It is a manageable species and, although it is difficult to eradicate, it is by no means indestructible

 

 

With our common sense approach, a sensible management plan can be agreed and put into action. This relieves the stress and worry for you, drastically reduces the concerns third parties (such as mortgage lenders, estate agents, vendors etc) might have and proves affordable and highly cost-effective.

 

We adhere to all Environment Agency guidelines in the treating, handling, transporting and disposal of Japanese Knotweed and have many years’ experience of eradicating it from various locations and properties.
