Invasive Species

Invasive species can have an adverse effect on a development. If ignored or handled in the wrong way, invasive species like Japanese knotweed can prove to be an expensive problem, especially if it needs to be removed from the site rather than treated in situ.

CEC has a proven track record in surveying and managing invasive species. We offer advice on legal responsibilities, and we can survey your site to map the invasive species present and estimate the volume of likely arisings if you need to excavate to remove the plant. We can also write management plans for your site to make sure that the right treatment is used in the right place and at the right time, to reduce your costs.

We will check that treatments have been completed and confirm follow-up monitoring. If you are unsure what you need to do, please feel free to contact us for advice.

If you require any further information on Japanese Knotweed and other invasive species surveys, call us on 01872 245510 or contact us to discuss your project and requirements.
