Phlorum’s Japanese Knotweed Credentials

Phlorum was founded in 2003 on the strength of our experience in removing knotweed from large development projects and remediation sites. From our inception we have been developing our control methods to provide a range of eradication treatments in order to treat and/or remove hundreds and thousands of tonnes of knotweed from difficult sites.

We are founding members of the Property Care Association Invasive Weed Control Group and the working group that produced guidance for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors on surveying Japanese knotweed and assessing its risk to residential property. This enables us to provide the necessary site works to allow lenders to offer mortgages on knotweed-affected properties.

We have also remediated thousands of tonnes of knotweed-contaminated soils from development sites across the UK, with the full involvement of regulators, where appropriate. We are also expanding our services into Europe.

Phlorum staff are regularly appointed as expert witnesses in legal cases involving Japanese knotweed, particularly where its presence blights the value of land and property. This has included input to court proceedings and attendance at the Lands Tribunal.

We have also appeared on numerous national TV and radio programmes to provide insight on knotweed problems. Furthermore, we are actively engaged in research with various UK universities and have published our findings in scientific papers, trade journals and national press articles.
