Invasive weed control
Transport networks, green spaces, brown field sites and development sites often become wildlife corridors and havens for biodiversity.
However certain species can be problematic if allowed to colonise. These fast growing or noxious species can threaten biodiversity, impede development and damage infrastructure. The most commonly associated species are:
- Japanese Knotweed
- Giant Hogweed
- Himalayan Balsam
Twig can undertake:
- Site reviews
- Develop economical and sustainable management plans
- Undertake the control and eradication of these invasive species
Some invasive weeds are considered so important that their control is covered by schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside act.
