Invasive weeds ‘are either native plant species that grow well in disturbed or nutrient-enriched conditions, to the detriment of other plant and animal species, or non-native plants that have been introduced to this country by accident or as a consequence of trade or deliberate collection. The latter tend to grow in situations where native plants of similar form do not’. Extract taken from an Environment Agency leaflet entitled Managing Invasive Non-native Plants

Non-native plants cause more damage than native plants they are also more difficult to eradicate.

When non-native invasive plants become established they can have cause serious damage to the ecosystem such as flooding, threaten or endanger native species.

John, Norfolk
Promptness of response : Accommodated my request of a particular day of the week, so I could meet the surveyor on the day. Quality of service : Surveyor (Mr Saeed) was very thorough and took his time to explain his key findings on the day of the survey. He explained things in a simple way, and was happy to address any concerns we had about the property. The surveyor said the report could take up to 5 working days to be completed, and we received it on the 5th working day. Surveyor was good at answering any other queries we had following the report on the telephone. I would use them again.
Mrs Dewan, Egham
