Iver: Invasive species survey and management plan

The client: Affinity Water.

The brief: Maydencroft consultants were asked to conduct a survey to identify invasive non-native species at a site in Iver, Buckinghamshire.

Our solution: A detailed survey of the area was undertaken which found Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed, Himalayan Balsam and Orange Balsam. Each patch was individually recorded and photographed to aid future monitoring and a five year eradication plan was written, with priority areas identified to help focus budgets.

Maydencroft contractors were then to provide accurate estimates for the total cost of the job before beginning the treatment process.

The result: “Maydencroft have provided us with a seamless service; from initial survey, followed by clear and practical management plans, right through to treatment and eradication.” J. Merrill, Asset Surveyor at Affinity Water.
