The Exmoor Knotweed Control Project

Japanese knotweed is one of Britain’s most invasive weeds, and is posing a real threat to some of the native flora and fauna of Exmoor. Both Japanese knotweed and its cousin, Himalayan knotweed can be seen along many watercourses on Exmoor, such as the Lyn and the Heddon, and also along hedgebanks and roadside verges. 

The Project is currently able to support landowners by offering to treat the knotweed on their land.
