Common non-native species in Devon

It is a land owners responsibly to manage certain species as they are listed under Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act. Amongst these are Himalayan balsam, Japanese knotweed, three cornered garlic, montbretia, Japanese rose, variegated yellow archangel as well as several rhododendron & cotoneaster species. Aquatic plants such as parrots feather weed and floating pennyweed are also listed. Fines of £5,000 or 2 years imprisonment can be given for a lack of management.


The invasion of non-native invasive species are an ever increasing problem that need to be tackled as soon as possible. I can provide services to coordinate the removal of unwanted plants and animals before the costs to remove them increase exponentially. Control of species can be only managed successfully if the correct techniques are used. A danger of increasing the problem can occur if best practice is not used.
