Invasive Species Surveys and Management

Invasive Species Surveys and Management

The occurrence of these species on sites can be very costly

Invasive species are not only detrimental to native species and habitats but they can cause damage to buildings and structures as well. Timely intervention can prevent large additional costs. EHM has experience in surveying for and controlling the following species:

  1. Japanese knotweed
  2. Elodea waterweed
  3. Giant hogweed
  4. Mink
  5. Water fern
  6. New Zealand pigmyweed
  7. Rhododendron
  8. Himalayan balsam

Invasive species such as those listed above are harmful to the environment and it is an offence under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to plant or spread them in the wild. The occurrence of these species on sites can be very costly further down the line and the longer they are left unmanaged. We have extensive knowledge in invasive species identification and up to date control methods.
