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.
What We Do
INVASIVE PLANT SOLUTIONS began addressing the spread of land based invasive plants in 2012 and have been implementing control and eradication programmes since that time. We offer site specific assessments and a suite of environmentally sensitive treatment solutions, tailored to meet individual site requirements. We utilise the most up-to-date innovations in equipment and herbicide treatment techniques, and apply best practice principles, based on established Codes of Practice and Environmental Legislation. Some control options are Stem Injection, Cut & Stem Fill, Cut & Stump Treat, Drill & Inject, Spot Spraying and Leaf Wiping, Soil Screening, Temporary and Permanent Bund Solutions, Root Barrier Systems, Deep Burial and Off Site Disposal
