Our Team

Stephen

Hi, I’m Stephen, the director, surveyor and operative. The best part of my job is being able to reassure people when they are told they have Japanese Knotweed. I have a wealth of experience and qualifications in the building industry to assess any structural damage to your property and recommend the best course of action. I am a keen gardener from the age of five and have a proper knowledge in identification of plants and weeds. With my wife, I share a passion for anything to do with horticulture. As a family, we love the great outdoors camping, walking, and cycling. Can’t live without music and love eating out socialising with friends.

Igor

Hello, I am Igor. I have a strong academic background that has been developed during tens of years of working at the University of Manchester and other universities overseas. My knowledge and experience is crucial for the precise assessment of the risks of invasive species at the sites of our potential clients and preparation of high-quality survey reports, offering the most efficient treatment options. With a strong understanding of the hazard to humans and the environment, developed during my time working in a chemical lab environment, this ensures a high safety standards at treatment sites and minimise environmental impact. Other interests include continuous practicing in traditional Shito-Ryu Shukokai karate that allows keeping well fit and combat Japanese Knotweed effectively.
