As major landowners, utility companies often have issues with Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds spreading on to neighbouring land and this is when they need to meet their legislative responsibilities to avoid disputes (following recent amendments to the Wildlife and Countryside Act, there is now potential for prosecution). Protecting biodiversity can also be high on the agenda and we can help our clients meet their environmental objectives through tackling invasive weeds and allowing native flora and fauna to flourish.
We offer a variety of solutions to our utility industry clients from a re-active project specific service that meets any timescale to service agreements where a full maintenance programme is designed, specifically identifying, prioritising and treating sites over a pre-defined period.
We hold a comprehensive selection of accreditations to underpin the quality and suitability of the work that we undertake, giving our clients the opportunity to off load the risk of the problems associated with Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds. All systems that we offer are supplied with full method statements which can be tailored to suit the high health and safety requirements of the utility industry.
Our experience in this industry is illustrated by the national agreement that we hold with National Grid and the many individual projects that we have undertaken for clients such as E-ON, United Utilities, Yorkshire Water and Thames Water.
