    Bamboo is native to Asia, particularly India and China with reports of it being cultivated over 5,000 years ago.

    First introduced to the UK in the late 18th / early 19th century originally as a hothouse “tropical” plant it’s many varieties have now become popular throughout the British Isles as a sturdy, pleasant looking plant with the ability to grow extremely quickly.

    Now numbering nearly 1,500 in the types of varieties in the family, bamboo is extremely diverse so it is always important to identify the type of bamboo you have present before starting any treatment or removal programme.

    Problems With Bamboo

    The main problem that people experience with bamboo is it’s ability to quickly and invasively spread to surrounding areas and properties.

    It can quickly outcompete and suffocate local plant varieties and can create problems with neighbours, with legal action even having to be taken at times if the bamboo on your property is not kept under control.

    It’s incredibly tough root structure or rhizome network can spread aggressively and shoots can push up and appear through concrete foundations, drives, patios on your or neighbouring properties.

    There are two main types of bamboo with one generally more troublesome than the other :

    Clumping Bamboo is generally less problematic and invasive with easily visible clumps forming close to the plant.

    Running Bamboo is the more troublesome due to it’s strong and fast spreading “running” roots. Generally running bamboo is the type to infiltrate and overwhelm surrounding areas and cause you issues.

    Bamboo Removal 

    Similar to all invasive weed treatment and removal plans, methods for getting rid of bamboo vary depending on the size and spread of the infestation.

    The first step should always be to identify the type of bamboo present before deciding on any kind of treatment programme.

    Then removal methods can include :

    Manual or Mechanical Removal – Digging out the infested area and root structure with mechanical excavation used for bigger infestations.

    Physical Barrier – Rhizome barriers are installed vertically around the plant to ensure the root structure does not encroach and spread to surrounding areas or properties.

    Herbicides / Chemicals  – Bamboo can be treated chemically with herbicide, making sure to not treat any surrounding plants.

    Ongoing Monitoring

    With any bamboo treatment or removal it is of extreme importance to constantly monitor the infected area for any signs of regrowth once the initial bamboo removal has occured.

    New shoots can quickly sprout back up if even tiniest fragment of rhizome has been left behind in the soil.

    Highly recommend. I enquired with Clear safe in the evening and James went down the morning the next day to survey the property. He then produced an extensive survey report for us free of charge. Couldn’t have been more helpful!

    I've just conducted a knotweed/ invasive plant survey from James at Claresafe. I'm so impressed with the level of service, knowledge, skill and care of these guys. James was fantastic, he even went to the neighbouring properties to ensure there were no invasive plants there as well. Just above and beyond my expectations. Delighted with the service. Highly recommend for total piece of mind when buying a property. Plus, i couldn't believe the price! Amazing value for money????. 10 out of 10 service all round. Thanks so much James

    Highly recommend these guys. Following on from my initial call to CLEARSAFE KNOTWEED, James arrived at the arranged time. We walked the garden and he identified the plants and the knotweed. I felt relaxed in his company as even though very professional, his friendly demeanor made this company easy to talk to. The report was written up and a management plan put in place within a few days as promised. Massive thanks to you for taking the knotweed stress away from selling my house!

    I can’t speak highly enough about the service we were given by Clearsafe. At short notice and working to our deadline, James explained how the system worked and patiently worked through my questions and concerns. We felt confident to go ahead with them. Within a week I had a detailed management plan and an insurance-backed, long term guarantee in my possession. I think that we made the best possible choice of contractor and would recommend Clearsafe without hesitation.

    James went above and beyond supporting us in getting our mortgage accepted to proceed on a property, which had a significant amount of Knotweed on the neighbouring land. He worked with us and the builder to ensure we could proceed in the purchase. Also provided us with peace of mind. A true expert!

    From the off, James was incredibly helpful and open with communication, making the process run extremely smoothly. The team communicated excellently with neighbours to explain the process and any possible restrictions. It was not only my property that benefited from James and the teams expertise. Would highly recommend.
