Japanese Knotweed was first introduced to the UK in the 19th Century, however it soon became apparent that the Japanese Knotweed was one of the most prolific weeds, growing up to 10cm a day in height and outcompeting our native plants and wildlife. Understandably then, The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 made it an offence to “plant or otherwise cause to grow in the wild” the Japanese Knotweed.
If Japanese knotweed has found its way into your grounds, its time you called us at Westland Estates because we specialise in Japanese knotweed eradication in London.

As expected the Japanese Knotweed is notoriously difficult to remove, which is why many seek professional aid from the experts here at Westland Estates. We offer Japanese Knotweed removal services in London which begins by developing a Japanese Knotweed management plan focused on controlling, treating and finally eradicating the Japanese Knotweed.
Once we have worked alongside you to develop a plan, we have the authority to perform Japanese knotweed removal. Digging the plant is rarely successful, which is why we prefer to perform a stem injection to guarantee the removal of the Japanese Knotweed.
This method is environmentally friendly and unlike traditional methods of treatment (such as foliar spraying) the stem injection can be used in environmentally sensitive areas.
