Japanese Knotweed and Invasive Plant Control Specialists

INVASIVE PLANT SOLUTIONS was established in 2012 to address the spread of alien invasive plant species across Ireland. These plants, particularly Japanese Knotweed, Giant Rhubarb, Giant Hogweed and Rhododendron, can now be found in every county, are threatening our sensitive habitats, and are undermining our native biodiversity. The greatest offenders, and the most aggressive of these species, are Japanese Knotweed and its various hybrids, Giant Rhubarb, Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam and Rhododendron. If habitat destruction and irreversible biodiversity impairment are to be avoided, we need to take urgent action and deploy effective management and control strategies across both individual locations & the broader environment.
