The Midlands area seems to be a hotbed of Japanese knotweed infestations. Although we are a nation wide company, our head quarters are based in the Midlands. As a result, we get a lot of Japanese knotweed removal enquiries for areas such as Dudley, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Halesowen, Solihull, Warwickshire, Coventry, Derby, Birmingham etc.
However, this year has seen a real spike in Japanese knotweed activity. Todays story is about a client that contacted us requiring our Japanese knotweed removal Dudley services. The client is not not a domestic client. They are a business based in Dudley and Japanese Knotweed has infected areas of their factory.
We thought this was an interesting story to share with our audience to highlight that Knotweed Services deal with many businesses (as well as domestic clients) throughout the whole of the West Midlands and beyond.
Japanese Knotweed does not discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re a business, domestic, whether you’r 5ft tall or 8ft tall or whether you’re male or female – it can and will grow almost anywhere. Knotweed Services can assist with the removal and eradication of Japanese Knotweed where ever you are in the UK, we can assist you on any property (both commercial and private).

Discovering Japanese Knotweed on or around your property can be quite distressing. Knotweed Services UK understand that no one wants to be told their property is worth less because of an aggressive weed in their garden however Japanese Knotweed will inevitably devalue your property. Eradicating it yourself would be very difficult and would require lots of time researching the plant properly. It would also require you to purchase expensive equipment, that’s why we strongly suggest using a specialist contractor such as ourselves. We have the professional training and experience to effectively eradicate any Japanese Knotweed infestation.
