COVID-19 UPDATE – 24th March 2020

Following the Government announcement last night of an immediate three-week UK lockdown, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend all invasive plant removal for commercial and residential clients unless complete social isolation measures can be guaranteed.

We would like to reassure our customers that we look forward to dealing with your Japanese knotweed, bamboo and other invasive plants when the lockdown is lifted. Although we are now entering the Japanese knotweed growing season, please do not panic or be tempted to deal with an infestation yourself, which could make the situation worse.

With remote working now established for our entire team, we remain available to advise you over the telephone and will continue to provide our full administrative functions. We may not be able to carry out site surveys at present but we can prepare FREE Japanese Knotweed Management Plans and quotations remotely, from information provided by our customers.

We also offer a free identification service, so if you’re worried about a plant growing in your garden and you’re unsure what it is, email us at

Finally, we are a financially robust company that has been operating for 24 years, with a strong balance sheet. Never before has the importance of a solid insurance-backed guarantee been so great and we hope it will comfort our customers to know that ours are underwritten by an A-rated syndicate at Lloyd’s of London.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
