Invasive Plant/Noxious Weed Removal
Many unsightly and invasive plants can cause damage to existing trees and shrubs. Removing these pests can reduce long term damage and future plant health issues.
We can remove or treat many invasive plants / noxious weeds such as Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed, Ivy, Lamium, and many other pests in the landscape.
Treatments include direct stem injections and complete manual plant / root removal and disposal.
Giant Hogweed is becoming a huge issue in the Fraser Valley. The clear sap of Giant hogweed contains toxins that can cause severe dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). You can get severe burns if you get the sap on your skin and the skin is then exposed to sunlight. Symptoms occur within 48 hours and consist of painful blisters. Purplish scars may form that last for many years. Coming in contact with the sap can cause serious health issues. This plant should be removed and properly disposed by a trained professional.
