Japanese Knotweed Identification
The first rule of Japanese knotweed elimination is to be able to recognise whether or not you have it present and active in your location. Flagging up the problem correctly is the starting point in any war raged on the notoriously territory-grasping weed, a real villain of modern horticultural times. The danger of Japanese knotweed to Britain’s homes and wildlife is clear and ever present, but the successful identification of Japanese knotweed paves the way to effectively tackling the problem and ultimately defeating the enemy within many of our gardens and countryside.
This is where we come in. Essentially, the identification process involves literally getting to the root of the potential problem, starting by establishing whether the unidentified flora object is the nasty Japanese knotweed or not. The identification process is performed by trained professionals carefully combing the location in search of the plant’s large green oval-shaped leaves and bamboo-type stem. Although the Japanese knotweed is nothing if not a master of disguise, taking on somewhat differing guises and characteristics throughout the calendar year, which certainly keeps us on our toes as we set about making a positive ID. This is why it needs to be done by the professionals like us who know what we’re talking about. Not everyone out there who claims to do this service is legitimate.
