Japan’s Notweed is harmful to the real estate industry. In just 10 weeks, the stems can grow up to 10 cm a day and the stems can reach 3-4 meters in height. This is against UK law if the landlord allows or allows the invader to spread the plant on someone else’s property.
According to a new study by Horticulture.co.uk, the number of Japanese notebook cases in the UK has increased dramatically over the past five years by 28%.
The results of 49 environmental organizations, including the National UK, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Trust, were analyzed by 29,536 validated Japanese Noty cases in the UK.
Invading plant and property market
The roots of the plants are extremely difficult to destroy. Treating an invasive plant can take up to three years.
Dean Wilson comments on Horticulture.co.uk: “When teaching a surveyor for your new home purchase, always ask them to look for Japanese Notweed and other invasive plants.”
If the property has an old or existing railway line, or is close to a river, canal or stream – this plant is likely to spread through the roots of small fragments.
An earlier YouGov study on fruit and vegetable development also shed more light on the plant and its impact on the property market.
According to a YouGov survey, 4 out of 907 homeowners in the UK are not buying homes in Japan. Of the rest, only less than half claim to buy the house, and they have reduced the price by at least 10%.
According to the survey, many homeowners are unfamiliar with the factory. This is because about half of the respondents were able to distinguish between Japanese and non-Japanese.
Horticulture.co.uk has introduced an interactive map to help landlords protect their property from the invading plant.
The next issue with Japan Noted raises the question of what the government is doing to eradicate this plant.
A.D. A national annihilation plan was planned for 2015, but was rejected by the government at an estimated cost of 1.5 1.5 billion.
The interactive map is an innovative tool to help protect many homeowners and homeowners. However, the study shows that there are an additional 19,702 unconfirmed cases of Japanese Noteway cases, and there is still a long way to go.
Below is a table showing the highest growth rates in the UK over the past five years.
