Over the past couple of years, there seems to have been an increase in problems caused by giant hogweed. This invasive plant is listed on Schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act and it is an offence to plant or otherwise cause to grow these species in the wild. The sap of this plant can cause severe skin burns, particularly when exposed to sunlight, so if you find it on your property then you need to act fast.
At S4JK we are experts in the treatment and removal of giant hogweed and have helped residential and commercial customers in Manchester, Stockport and the surrounding areas, effectively get rid of it. Giant hogweed is very similar in appearance to cow parsley with white flowers produced in flat-topped clusters that point upwards and can grow to a height of 3.5 meters with a spread of 1 – 2 meters.
Local authorities have the power to ask landowners to remove giant hogweed and failure to do so could lead to penalties.
