Environet: The leading Japanese knotweed removal company in Manchester

Like many areas of the UK, Manchester has found infestations of Japanese knotweed becoming increasingly problematic. Professional Japanese knotweed removal is needed because of the invasive and damaging nature of this plant.

A number of Japanese knotweed removal companies put all their effort into dealing with the above soil plant. The trouble with this approach is that the roots grow deep into the ground and, if these are not removed, the infestation will recover and the plant will begin to grow again.
