Japanese knotweed Removal London
Japanese knotweed has an incredibly robust plant structure, allowing it to grow in almost any environment. This is largely why the removal of Japanese knotweed is so difficult.
With its ability to tolerate low temperatures, it can rapidly spread through any gaps in structures like bricks or concrete. By choosing a trusted Japanese knotweed removal specialist in London, you can ensure your infestation is removed permanently, and avoid the cost of knotweed damage in future.
Japanese knotweed Removal Cost in London
There is no one fixed Japanese knotweed removal cost, as this depends on the treatment plan and extent of your infestation.
Our careful and methodical treatment of Japanese knotweed using appropriate chemicals and dosages over time allow for successful control of the Japanese knotweed, as well as prevent it from spreading. We offer a 100% guarantee that our herbicide treatment programmes will prevent any future above ground growth. However, this treatment method does not guarantee that the underground rhizomes will be removed.
Excavation involves digging up the entire root system, and is the only method which allows Japanese knotweed to be removed fully and permanently. It’s important for works to be carried out by experts such as TPK knotweed, to ensure complete removal, as a minute piece of rhizome has the ability to regrow and lead to spreading.
Japanese Knotweed in London: The Facts
The presence of Japanese knotweed has become a growing concern in London in recent years due to its rapid spread throughout the city. This is partly due to the plant’s ability to thrive in a range of soil types and urban environmental conditions, and partly due to the fact that it is often spread by human activity, such as through the dumping of garden waste.
- Japanese knotweed has been identified on at least one site in every 10 km square in London.
- There are around 20,000 hectares of land in London that are affected by Japanese knotweed, with an estimated cost of £1.56 billion to treat and remove the plant across the city.
- In 2018, Japanese knotweed was listed as one of the top 100 invasive species in the UK by the Invasive Species Specialist Group.
- The presence of Japanese knotweed can reduce property values by up to 10%, according to research by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
- A survey by YouGov in 2019 found that 8% of UK homeowners had been affected by Japanese knotweed on their property, with the figure rising to 19% for London homeowners.
These are just a few of the countless statistics which highlight the significant impact that Japanese knotweed can have on properties in London, both in terms of financial cost and environmental impact. These facts demonstrate the importance of managing the presence of Japanese knotweed in order to mitigate its negative effects.
