PCA’s Inaugural Invasive Weeds Conference
National trade body the Property Care Association (PCA) is holding a specialised conference, dedicated to the subject of non-native invasive plants.
‘Understanding Invasive Weeds: Japanese Knotweed, Fact and Fiction’ takes place on 23 September at The Vale Resort, Hensol, Cardiff.
It is the first conference held by the PCA’s specialist Invasive Weed Control Group and is being facilitated by Richard Newis, Ashfield Japanese Knotweed (Chair), Ian Graham, Complete Weed Control and Professor Max Wade, AECOM.
As well as seeking to promote a level headed and evidence based approach to Japanese Knotweed, there will also be a focus on other invasive weeds such as Himalayan Balsam and Giant Hogweed, which are increasingly regulated in the UK following new EU regulations, which came into effect in January.
