Japanese knotweed removal techniques

Japanese knotweed can be controlled or removed in several ways.

In the winter, herbicide treatment is not an option as the plant is dormant, with no above ground growth. Japanese knotweed can still be physically removed during this time. Various removal techniques are available, depending on your budget, site conditions and time frame.

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.

Japanese knotweed in the winter - dead canes

Japanese knotweed growing season ends as winter approaches

It is that time of year again when Japanese knotweed is dying away ready to spread its damage again in the spring.

Although still standing the bamboo-like canes will soon be brown, brittle and inert eventually decomposing over time. However, the rhizome system beneath the ground is still very much alive, waiting to emerge, bigger and stronger, with new shoots next March and April.
