A Month in the Life of a Knotweed & Tree Expert in Wales
I have recently taken to posting photographs and details of recent work on Facebook. It is always great to read comments and thoughts of the people that follow my page. Some seemed too good to not immortalise in an article!
Knotweed Surveys Ceredigion
Lonlas Council School, Llanamlet
One person commented on Facebook: Doesn’t it takes 5 years of spraying 3 times a year to clear knotweed? It will just grow back if cut and not treated by spraying, soil removal or burying the roots at depth with a series of membranes on top to stop it growing through!
For those thinking the same: The ground has been cleared to allow the area to be measured and pegged out for future construction. That was Phase 1.
The Knotweed has been cut 4-6” above the surface, so everyone is aware of its exact location within the soil.

Have Van, Will Travel
In Mid-December I travelled throughout South & West Wales & into West Mercia this week conducting surveys on trees and Japanese Knotweed. I haven’t calculated the mileage yet it’s likely to be between 400-500 miles in all.
