Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) is an extremely abundant alien invasive plant in the UK. New plants can grow vegetatively from very small fragments of rhizome of less than an inch wide this is the main means of spread in the non-native environment. A single stand of Japanese Knotweed can occupy large areas and cause significant environmental and economic damage if it is not controlled properly.
It is a widely accepted practice to remove Japanese Knotweed at the development sites prior to the start of construction work.
The sellers of residential properties are normally requested to mention in their seller’s pack if Japanese Knotweed is present. This includes the owner’s site and adjacent area.
