Dealing With Invasive Weeds
Tower Tree Services is skilled and experienced in dealing with invasive
weeds for our clients. We can offer a full solution from identification and surveying to management planning and long-term treatment solutions. We are working with clients who are dealing with invasive weeds
in various densities and locations.
We can help from the outset with site surveying and bring the client through
a full management plan and treatment program design process. Ultimately we want to ensure our clients become educated and informed of the problem as
to the various treatment options available and suited to their infestation.
We like to keep the client informed throughout the process and provide full management plans and progress reports throughout the lifetime of the contract. We are currently working on eradication programmes for Local Authorities, State Bodies and construction companies .
Invasive Weed Species
Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) has hollow stems with distinct raised nodes that give it the appearance of
bamboo, though it is not related. The leaves are broad oval with a truncated base and the flowers are small, cream or white, produced in late summer and early autumn.
It is listed by the World Conservation Union as one of the world's worst invasive species. The invasive root system and strong growth can damage concrete foundations, buildings, flood defenses, roads, paving, retaining walls and architectural sites.

It is not advisable to attempt to kill Japanese Knotweed yourself without professional advice from a company such as ourselves here at the Tower Tree Services.
