On 29th May 2014 we’ve finally moved to our new 6,500 sq ft premises, located between Guildford and Woking. Our new building provides us with ample new office space, warehousing for all our Japanese knotweed equipment and machinery, and space for us to further our research and development activities.
Environet was incorporated on 28th May 1996. That makes it our 18th birthday. Is that something to celebrate? I think so, as it makes us the longest established company specialising solely in the eradication of Japanese knotweed.
The awareness of Japanese knotweed seems to be growing as fast as the dreaded plant seems to spread. Japanese knotweed is being spotted all over the country, in gardens, hedgerows, on road sides, canals, rivers, development sites, on the railway, in car parks, I could go on. In fact it might be easier to list the places where it hasn’t yet spread.
Environet Uk Ltd, who lead the fight against knotweed removal, have just released the latest of their videos entitled ‘Commercial. ’ This fine short film covers all aspects of dealing effectively with Japanese knotweed on development land. It also explains why Environet now provide the all important Guarantees, which are insurance backed by Lloyd's of London.

Environet is pleased to announce that all our guarantees are now underwritten by an insurer at Lloyd’s. Our clients can be confident they have the best available guarantee from a market leading knotweed specialist and an “A” rated insurer.
