Japanese knotweed experts.

Friday 8th June 2018

The word ‘experts’ or ‘specialists’ in the Japanese knotweed industry has a long history of being misused by companies or people. These terms may be used by credible companies, but often are not. When I see a new Japanese knotweed company advertising, I often check their website out. Sometimes I find that our photographs have been stolen from our website and used without permission; sometimes I find a good informative website and sometimes I find shockingly bad ones!

I’ve found one shocker recently. According to their website they specialise in difficult weeds such as Japanese knotweed, but critically some of the photographs that they show which are supposed to be Japanese knotweed – are not! They actually show photographs of Russian Vine - a completely different plant and then you read their totally inaccurate description of knotweed winter canes being tough and hard to cut (actually they are fragile, flimsy canes, easily broken) – were they thinking of bamboo canes?

We call ourselves professionals, we are qualified and experienced in the invasive weed sector. Critically we’ve been working in this field for 14+ years (exclusively with Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds); before that I was treating invasive weeds as part of my overall management duties, so I can claim to have more than 2 decades worth of experience – and I am not the only one in the company that can (nearly) claim that!

If you are looking for an expert – speak to the professionals, we are competent and experienced at our job.
