Offering invasive plant species control services nationally, Appleby Environmental Services Ltd offer free species identification and quotations for your project specifications.

Our knowledgeable, fully qualified and insured specialists and operatives, offer support and guidance in the implementation of management and control plans. Each plan will be tailor made for your individual invasive plant species management requirements, for commercial and construction clients as well as private land and home owners.

Our herbicidal treatment and control programmes for invasive species are typically far more cost-effective, environmentally sustainable and generally use less resources than excavation programmes.

All of Appleby Environmental’s herbicidal control programmes are carried out by knowledgeable, experienced and qualified operatives who are fully certified by NPTC.

Non-native invasive plant species listed within Schedule 9 of The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 are species that are currently established in the wild and continue to pose threat to native biodiversity and habitats.

These invasive plants can ecologically supress local native plant species which causes both physical and biological damage to these native plants which can lead to areas being overrun with invasive species.

We always ensure that we take your individual requirements of your site into consideration when implementing our control programmes, so whether you have any nearby SSSIs, watercourses, ecologically sensitive areas or neighbouring properties, our experts can assist you from start to finish in achieving management and control of these non-native plant species whilst working in line with industry best practices.
