Invasive and injurious native and non-native plants or soils contaminated with these plant materials can cause ecological damage and are recognised as the second biggest threat to biodiversity and ecosystems worldwide.
Invasive non-native plants invade habitats, spread out of control quickly and can outcompete native species and vegetation.
Some can be destructive, causing riverbanks, built infrastructure and surfaces to destabilise, or worse stills, some plants can even adversely affect human and animal health. Common disruption of Invasive plants include blocking and breaking popular places such as footpaths, road networks and flood defences.
Types of Invasive Plants include?
Invasive Plant Treatment
The Mick George Group apply various treatment techniques for suitably managing Invasive plants, including:
- Spraying plants with chemicals
- Burying plants
- Burning plants
- Disposing of plants off site
Invasive Plant Disposal
Invasive plants are often classified as controlled waste, and subsequently should be disposed of off-site safely by a registered waste carrier, like the Mick George Group, who can ensure the following:
- Audited Waste Transfer Note.
- Send to an authorised landfill / disposal site.
- Any contaminated soils treated with persistent chemicals must be treated accordingly.
- Any contaminated materials that escape during transportation, could lead to prosecution and, or fines.
- You cannot compost most non-native plants.
- You have a duty of care under the Wildlife & Countryside Act 1981.
You may be able to claim land remediation relief for removing contamination arising from invasive plants, offering financial savings.
