Invasive Species Survey

Invasive Species Survey

CCNW has extensive experience in identifying, controlling and the eradication of invasive species. If your site is affected by invasive species we have the expertise to advise you and help you to deal with them.

The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 Schedule 9 currently lists 139 species for which it is an offence to introduce or cause to establish in the wild. Part One of the Schedule lists invasive animal species including five species of non-native crayfish, American mink and grey squirrel. Part two lists invasive plants such as Japanese knotweed, giant hogweed, Himalayan balsam, water primrose, rhododendron, several seaweeds, and a range of water plants such as Canadian Pondweed.

The management of invasive species is a specialist area, which requires careful eradication techniques to avoid disturbance during development work. Our experienced team of ecologists and contractors will work with you to ensure the most effective methods are found to suit your project.

As well as providing consultancy services, we provide practical control and removal contracting of invasive species. Click here to find out more.
