We were called by a resident from the Nottingham area as they suspected they may have a Japanese knotweed infestation. Unfortunately, their suspicions proved correct and Japanese Knotweed was present at their residential property.
The client had began renovating their property and only found out about the potential Japanese Knotweed infestation when the property was surveyed for further borrowing to complete the renovation. Suffice to say – the banks will not loan against a property where the invasive plant is present, where there has been no management plan put into place – Knotweed Services UK were on hand to help! Our Japanese knotweed removal Nottingham service is exactly what was needed.
This was an unforeseen additional worry and expense that they were not prepared for. We have provided a payment scheme to enable them to go ahead with treatment and allow them to secure further borrowing and therefore complete work to the property.
The treatment that we will be using for this Japanese knotweed removal Nottingham job will be stem injection. Stem injecting Japanese knotweed is an excellent method as it will only target and destroy Japanese knotweed, ensuring surrounding species (such as your plants) are not destroyed. Stem injections work by injecting each Japanese knotweed cane, which then allows the herbicide to trans-locate throughout the roots and rhizome of the entire plant.

Japanese knotweed continues to be featuring heavily in the news (radio, TV and news papers). The government has recently introduced laws and penalties for those that don’t manage their Japanese knotweed invasion. You can now be fined upto £2500 (£20,000 if you’re a company) and receieve an ASBO!!
