Invasive Species Management
When considering your options for invasive species control or eradication, it becomes clear that often the biggest issue we face is the impact it has on the surrounding environment.
We offer fully comprehensive solutions to invasive species control, from mapping out the area concerned, habitat surveys and practical removal.
Most invasive species control measures come with long term commitment but some can be simpler than others to manage with very practical methods. Such as Himalayan Balsam (Impatiens glandulifera) with very little issues for the surrounding environment when removing. Himalayan Balsam management is time sensitive - yes, but with commitment and constant observation it is extremely effective.
However, we encounter several species with huge impact on the environment whilst in situ and in it's removal. We have managed several sites for New Zealand Pigmyweed (Crassula helmsii) in both lakes and marsh. One form of management most certainly doesn't fit all. The solutions depend on whether it is an aquatic or terrestrial problem, most often it includes both. Our work will ensure the least impact on the surrounding habitat. We welcome the opportunity to have a frank but sympathetic discussion regarding the solutions.
Case Studies of Crassula helmsii Management
New Zealand Pygmyweed (Crassula helmsii) has numerous methods of removal but none have proven to be a full eradication solution.
These can include (often several methods used):-
Drainage, removal by hand, light limitation, mechanical, herbicide application.
