Weed Control

Assured Environmental Services regularly carry out Weed Control Programmes often as part of a Pest Prevention or Habitat Management Programme e.g., a Total Control Programme may help reduce weeds near a building or structure that enables pests to feel safe in gaining access to the structure of the building.  We regularly kill off areas of thistles, docks and nettles for landowners of both rural and commercial sites. All other invasive weeds or brushwood can be treated, without damage to non-target species, which may be present in surrounding areas. This is achieved through careful chemical selection and the use of knapsack spraying for spot treatments, with weed wiping carried out over larger areas.

Most of our bracken control work is carried out for long term, government funded projects or as part of stewardship schemes for landowners. These have included work for The National Trust, Yorkshire Water, Limestone Country Project, Natural England and Yorkshire Dales National Park.
