A conference about invasive weeds!

Although this sounds funny, as someone who has suffered from a blight of Japanese Knotweed, I know certain weeds are no laughing matter.

Japanese Knotweed
The Property Care Association (PCA) is holding the first conference dedicated to the subject of non-native invasive plants called -

‘Understanding Invasive Weeds: Japanese Knotweed, Fact and Fiction’

The conference takes place on 23 September at The Vale Resort, Hensol, Cardiff.

The conference aims to put the range of invasive weeds under the spotlight for landlords.

It is the first conference held by the PCA’s specialist Invasive Weed Control Group and is being facilitated by Richard Newis, Ashfield Japanese Knotweed (chair), Ian Graham, Complete Weed Control and Professor Max Wade, AECOM.

As well as tackling the thorny issue of Japanese Knotweed, other invasive weeds such as Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed will be discussed. 

The issues follow new EU regulations that empower government agencies to issue Control Orders to manage any high risk invasive weed species, including housing construction projects.
