Invasive Species Surveys

Invasive Weed Management

As part of the Preliminary Ecological Appraisal survey, we can highlight the presence of non-native, invasive species.

The control of Non-Native Invasive Species in the UK is estimated to be £1.8 billion annually. These invaders can have a significant impact on people, wildlife and the environment through posing risks to human health, out-competing native species and destruction of habitat (including man-made habitats with materials such as concrete and tarmac).
