Invasive Species
(J.Knotweed) Eradication

Amherst, MA

Japanese knotweed is one of the hardest invasive plants to eradicate. Jim is a MA Licensed Pesticide applicator who apples the principals of IVM (integrated vegetation management). IVM is a systematic integrated approach to managing vegetation using multiple techniques. It applies the right intervention method at the right place and the right time to control vegetation, using chemicals as a last resort.

When I first arrived to the site it was 10,000+ square feet of Japanese knotweed. It took 2 years with a multi-pronged attack, but it was eliminated.

After: This was the year after planting.  Goshen stone paths, retaining walls with a sitting area, flowering perennials, trees and shrubs all fill the space quickly.

Before: The site with the knotweed removed.
