In 2019 were began the control of invasive species Japanese Knotweed at a small plot of land north of Heathrow Airport. Our required services were then extended through to include the overseeing, planning and implementation of habitat creation and maintenance to compliment the client’s environmental ambitions. Now on site there is a fruit orchard containing multiple varieties of pear, plum and regional apples including the local Hounslow Wonder.
We have been busy on site completing ground rotovation, seeding and continued invasive species treatments and monitoring. The fruit trees planted last year have taken off well, with a flourish of blossoms and many fruits beginning to set. With the wildflower seeding established beneath the orchard in time to come, this is sure to be a hive of wildlife activity.
Planting has been completed of the fruit trees on site, fitted with guards and stakes to protect from animal damage in addition to mulch and top soil for a head start in establishing in their new ground.
Our Biodiversity Conservation Officers and Landscaping Lead completed the treatment of invasive species Japanese Knotweed, working with the client and visiting personnel to ensure the upkeep of legislation, quarentine and dispersal restrictions.
