Japanese knotweed news:
Japanese knotweed is our favourite topic of conversation (no surprise there) and a large part of our work involves speaking at events, seminars and webinars, helping to educate and inform property professionals. This year has got off to a flying start with our Regional Directors travelling the length and breadth of the country delivering seminars to groups of surveyors and legal practices, with plenty more already booked in for the coming months.
As part of our ongoing investment in Research and Development, we’re always carrying out different experiments on Japanese knotweed to test its resilience and the effectiveness of different treatment methods.
We already knew knotweed could regrow from a tiny fragment of rhizome, or root, left in the soil, but the results from our latest experiments have surprised even us and reinforced our belief that knotweed is one of the most resilient plants around.
