Japanese knotweed removal

Hi everyone,

Have recently thought about going into knotweed treatment both spray and removal and have done the relevant training with the property care association (pca), does anyone have an idea of rates or pricing in this field ?.Every job on any site is different and many factors come into play when surveying sites And therefore pricing will reflect this , but is there a standard rate of some sort ?.

    £70M was the rate paid when the Olympic park was built in London. Think most people should expect 3-5K.....

      Thanks for that, i had that figure as a rough guide 

  • Hi Ed
    Slightly going off topic ...... what are the benefits of the PCA training, for example are you able to write reports for mortgage companies etc? If not has anyone carried out the training enabling themselves to do this? Thanks in advance

      Hi David 

      The benefits of the training is that you cover all aspects for managing and treating Japanese knotweed, from initial site survey to what should be in a management report .

      The surveyors course at the PCA is over two days and I personally  learnt a lot from it , I only sat the exam two days ago so will have to wait 6 - 8 weeks for the results.

      Some RICS surveyors will only accept a report if your have pca membership I have heard, as are some councils and others .

      Look on the PCA website for more info
