Pernicious Weeds Surveys

There are seven pernicious weeds identified by the Wildlife and Countryside Act – Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica), Himalayan balsam (Impatiens glandulifera), giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum), Australian swamp stonecrop (Crassula helmsii), parrots feather (Myriophyllum aquaticum), floating pennywort (Hydrocotyle ranunculoides) and creeping water primrose (Ludwigia peploides).

PBA take a pragmatic approach to the eradication and control of pernicious weeds, particularly Japanese knotweed. PBA can provide identification surveys and provide design advice with regard to the removal, eradication, or management of JK based on cost effective solutions which meet Environment Agency approval.

PBA also have considerable experience with other identified pernicious weeds undertaking surveys and providing design advice.
