Japanese knotweed action

Stacks Image 114
In the autumn of 2020, we are delighted that our Japanese knotweed contractors - the Habitats Team at The Wye and Usk Foundation - are receiving such a warm welcome again this year. The team will be making the most of any calm, dry spell to get out and treat this invasive species around Tintern and the neighbouring villages.
It really is good to see that our concerted efforts over the last few years are really starting to pay off with the extent of knotweed and the need for treatment getting less year on year. So, thank you to all you landowners, residents and businesses for working with us, reporting sightings, granting us access and spreading news of this initiative - it really is a team effort.
