Japanese knotweed in the autumn

“Helloweed” - trick or treat time for Japanese knotweed

Trick or treat - don't be fooled, Japanese knotweed is still alive.

It's Halloween again that time of year in the knotweed calendar marking the conclusion of what many people think is the end of the knotweed treatment season. It’s true enough that the knotweed is preparing for its winter dormancy period, where the leaves go yellow and fall, leaving brittle hollow canes, tricking people into thinking the knotweed has at long last died. Of course it’s just disguised as dead, with healthy underground orange rhizomes the colour of pumpkins.

Environet review of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, now is a good time to review our achievements over the last 12 months.

At the beginning of the year we had a recruitment drive to strengthen our team and find suitable Regional Managers for all of the key areas in England and Wales. This was followed, in the summer, by appointing Cathy Wisker and Gemma Briant to create our new Marketing department. Their initial objectives have included managing the launch of our new company website and new logo re-branding across all of our marketing collateral. Our headcount is now double what it was in January.
