Horsetail (often referred to as Mare’s tail) – This is an under-rated problem, but Clearsafe Japanese Knotweed are getting a growing number of calls regarding the treatment and eradication of this plant, due to its ability to destroy new tarmac and poke through cracks in paving. We believe the problem is growing because of a lack of awareness surrounding its ability to spread on the wind using spores. The plant is very simple but robust which makes it quite resistant to non-specialist weed killers. It also has a deep root or rhizome system like Japanese Knotweed that makes it very difficult to dig out or kill with a single herbicide application.
Rhododendron – Introduced to Britain sometime around 1763 rhododendron is a hardy evergreen flowering shrub. An invasive species it takes hold and out competes native flora and fauna. Control methods vary depending on the maturity and size of the infestation. Call now for an onsite assessment and bespoke control services.
Giant Hogweed – After all the publicity in the last few years, it’s surprising we don’t get many calls for Giant Hogweed; most calls are mistaken identifications with Common Hogweed. Having said all this, Giant Hogweed is definitely one to call in the experts as soon as you notice it, due to the potential for serious injury. Contact with the plant can make your skin photosensitive, so that you can suddenly develop painful burns. The seeds can be very long-lasting so it needs to be dealt with.
Cherry Laurel – Cherry Laurel is a dense thicket forming invasive ever-green shrub of gardens, parks and woodlands from South West Asia. Similar to Rhododendron with its waxy leaves and characteristics, treatment methods are the same. Call us to enquire about our services.
