Invasive Species

Tilhill has many years’ experience in appropriately and safely controlling invasive plant species to minimise disturbance and help prevent future spread.

Invasive plant species are non-native to this country but are able to successfully establish themselves in our native ecosystem. Invasive non-native species have no natural competitors or predators in their new habitats and are therefore able to dominate or out-compete our native species.

Tilhill is skilled in control measures including hand removal, cutting, spraying, and replanting with desirable native species.

Invasive plant species include:

  • Japanese knotweed.
  • Giant hogweed.
  • Himalayan balsam.
  • Rhododendron ponticum
