Japanese Knotweed Cornwall

Japanese Knotweed (fallopia japonica) also known as Japanese bamboo is very invasive and it spreads rapidly.  If not controlled  it can quickly cause damage to buildings and hard surfaces, however Japanese Knotweed can be easy and inexpensive to eradicate with use of effective application of the correct herbicide without causing damage to the environment.

Japanese Knotweed can also  be brought under control by other methods that are environmentally friendly without the use of herbicide. All parts of the plant are controlled waste and must be disposed of correctly as causing it to spread into the wild is an offence under the Wildlife and Countryside Act.
