Japanese knotweed is often the first invasive non-native species that our clients are familiar with. However, there are currently 56 invasive non-native plant species and 69 non-native animal species listed on Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 (as amended) in the UK. Invasive non-native species spread easily and are usually difficult to control. It is estimated by Defra that non-native species cost the UK around £2 billion a year, and they can have a significant impact on development and infrastructure projects. Ecosulis can provide a range of advice and experience for surveying and controlling a range of non-native invasive plant species, including Japanese knotweed, Indian balsam and giant hogweed
