Japanese knotweed with white flowers

Eagle Radio ‘Japanese knotweed could cost you thousands’ features Environet

Featured on 2nd October 2016 on Eagle Radio. 

Nic Seal, Managing Director of Environet, was interviewed for Eagle Radio, which aired on Sunday.

Japanese knotweed was of course the topic of discussion. Costing the UK economy £166 million a year to deal with, this invasive plant grows extremely quickly, and if left untreated, can cause property damage.

Japanese knotweed removal techniques

Japanese knotweed can be controlled or removed in several ways.

In the winter, herbicide treatment is not an option as the plant is dormant, with no above ground growth. Japanese knotweed can still be physically removed during this time. Various removal techniques are available, depending on your budget, site conditions and time frame.

Environet review of 2015

As 2015 draws to a close, now is a good time to review our achievements over the last 12 months.

At the beginning of the year we had a recruitment drive to strengthen our team and find suitable Regional Managers for all of the key areas in England and Wales. This was followed, in the summer, by appointing Cathy Wisker and Gemma Briant to create our new Marketing department. Their initial objectives have included managing the launch of our new company website and new logo re-branding across all of our marketing collateral. Our headcount is now double what it was in January.
