New Year, Expansion and Craghoppers

New year Blog 2017

Well we are back in the full swing of things now with Japanese Knotweed Excavation projects under way as well as site clearance works and preparation.

Recently we have undertaken a rather tricky clearance project in York for a large Civil contractor who are currently clearing the site for a Large housing developer.

We have been on site for several months with initial works consisting of clearing thousands of m2 of Himalayan Balsam. We have also cleared trees and vegetation recently in order to build and access way into the site.

Thankfully the weather has been relatively mild & thanks to Craghoppers clothing we are nice and toasty! If you fancy a bargain for a lovely waterproof jacket then check this link out http://www.craghoppers.com/walden-jacket-dk-navy-0-9.html

We are expanding rapidly at the moment and have recently opened new offices in Hull, Newcastle & Bristol.

We aim to gain a foothold in these areas and hope to help people suffering from problems due to invasive species.

Despite the time of year Japanese Knotweed continues to hit the headlines here in the UK with a landmark legal case involving Network rail. A homeowner has successfully sued network rail for irresponsible dealings with Japanese Knotweed.

Here are 2 news articles for your perusal.

As the article shows Insurance Backed guarantees are available to help homeowners sell their properties and most importantly move on with their lives.

Once this guarantee is in place there should be no need to devalue the property in question.
