Weed Control

Contact Salcey Group

No matter how large or small an area, Salcey's experienced staff will assess the area and instigate the appropriate treatment to safely treat all weeds with minimum disturbance and without threat to the public and the environment.

Noxious Weed Management

With urban developments spreading, transport networks have become wildlife corridors and havens for biodiversity. However certain species can be problematic if allowed to colonise green estates. These fast growing or noxious species can threaten biodiversity, impede maintenance and damage infrastructure.

The three most commonly associated with the Highways Environment are Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Ragwort. They are so important that their control is covered by legislation, Salcey has considerable expertise in the control and eradication of invasive and noxious species and will advise and instigate the appropriate course of action.

Urban Weed Control

Salcey has a team of experienced professionals, who are highly trained and fully certificated to help you provide safer, cleaner and greener urban environments.

Our staff are equipped with modern machinery to carry out their tasks in a safe, effective, environmentally responsible and efficient manner - from compact tractors and sprayers to knapsacks, quad bikes and RDS monitors, as well as specialist equipment to treat open acreage, access trails and hard-to-reach areas.
