Japanese knotweed has hit the headlines of a national newspaper recently with the story of a homeowner who lost £20,000 in value on his home and the cancellation of a sale, all because Japanese knotweed was recorded near his property.
This unfortunate incident, which is one of many, highlights the need to record the locations of invasive plant species and make all attempts to halt the spread before control.
If you have a location of an invasive plant, such as Japanese knotweed, Giant Hogweed or Himalayan Balsam, please contact CIRB Project Officer Neil Dalrymple at the GFT office.
Your recording will be mapped by GFT on a new national database, and then passed on to the relevant organisation, or if possible, included in our control programme.
For more information on invasive plants, please visit the ‘CIRB Project’ page.
