Japanese Knotweed

Educating the nation on the truth about Japanese knotweed

There has definitely been a real shift in both awareness and knowledge of Japanese Knotweed – ‘The Plant that Ate Britain’, the UK’s most troublesome and invasive plant, over the last few years.  However, we still find people pouring salt down canes and developers spreading it all over their sites, multiplying the damage and costs. So, we decided it’s high time we took the message to the people, as part of our plan to educate the nation.  We’re beginning with roadshow seminars in the South-West as follows:

What every property professional ought to know about Japanese knotweed

Environet UK invites you to one of our forthcoming free local knotweed seminars designed to quickly give you the information you need to avoid the pitfalls associated with Japanese knotweed on both commercial and residential property.

Who should attend and why?

Surveyors – Estate Agents –   Conveyancing Solicitors  –  Developers – Architects – Quantity Surveyors

Main Contractors  –  Land Owners  –  Consultants  –  Project Managers

Japanese knotweed continues to create serious problems for anyone involved in the ownership and development of land affected by Japanese knotweed. If you haven’t seen Environet on BBC Breakfast or in the Sunday Times now’s your chance to get up to speed on all the developments, changes to the law, and how to solve the typical problems that arise when selling/buying, when developing, or facing legal action.

These seminars are free to attend but places are limited and allocated strictly on a first come,

first served basis.
