Environet, a Japanese knotweed removal company based in Send, warns local residents to look out for Japanese knotweed. 

This plant, which lays dormant over the winter has remerged, thanks to the mild and wet winter.

Does Japanese knotweed have any redeeming qualities?

Japanese knotweed (Fallopia Japonica), has earned itself a negative reputation in the UK.

Japanese knotweed is regarded as being the UK’s most aggressive and destructive plant, spreading across the UK and causing havoc to those unfortunate enough to own property in its way.  It’s undoubtedly a nuisance to have on your land. It causes damage to property, it's expensive to get rid of, and can potentially devalue your property.
