INVASIVE WEED CONTROL
Boverton Nurseries are experts in invasive weed control. We have a team of experienced and technicians qualified in the spraying and injection of invasive species including Japanese knotweed, giant hog weed and Himalayan balsam control as well as general spraying for weed for both commercial and domestic properties.
The removal of invasive plant species is the requirement of the landowner under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Schedule 9. Most invasive species require a 3-5 year program of removal. We can produce a yearly report for mortgage and insurance purposes are, of course, fully insured.
Sprayed or injected herbicide treatment is an effective long-term eradication method. Typically treatment programmes take up to 4 years to complete and are suitable, providing there are no plans to develop the affected areas.
7 of our technicians are fully trained and qualified with PA1, PA6A and PA6AW certification
- spraying pesticides on and around land and water.
4 technicians also have PA6INJ certification for stem injection of Japanese knotweed and other invasive species.
