CHAIRMAN’S UPDATE – WHEN DID THAT HAPPEN?

People often say to me… ‘Why has Japanese knotweed suddenly become such big news?’… ‘it’s been around since 1840, why is it only just beginning to register as an issue?’…

Well – there is actually a technical reason for this…. invasive non-native species go through a series of… ‘phases’… as they settle into a new environment.
