Rhododendron ponticum control

Rhododendron ponticum is an established non-native invasive species within the UK that if left uncontrolled creates issues for land and property owners. Environment Controls is the perfect solution for tackling this invasive shrub.


Get rid of Rhododendron p.

If ignored, this invasive shrub will take over vast areas of land and do significant damage to local biodiversity. This is a huge problem for landowners, farmers and private estate managers as it could have an impact on their environmental management. We can get Rhododendron under control or completely get rid of it via excavation.

Ideally treated in winter

Winter is the perfect time to undertake control of Rhododendron infestations. During winter many plants enter a more dormant state when the sugars within the plant are flowing into the root system. Treatment in winter can improve the absorption of herbicides into the root system and help to kill the plant. Also, as other surrounding shrubs loose their leaves it makes access easier for excavation works should that be the chosen method.

The benefits of a survey

Getting the help you need starts with a survey. Book your survey today and our highly qualified and experienced surveyors will be able to provide you with a comprehensive report of the extent of the infestation and offer clear no-obligation advice on the best options available to resolve the issue.
