Japanese Knotweed Method Statements for Construction Sites

We produce Method Statements detailing procedures for Japanese Knotweed Removal on construction sites. Method statements are, more often than not, a requirement for planning applications and can also be of great benefit in any planning appeals process. A professionally produced arboricultural method statement will be cost effective as it will speed up the planning process. It may highlight also future potential problems concerning japanese knotweed infestation and removal.
