Excavation of Giant hogweed to facilitate culvert works Giant hogweed eradication

Giant hogweed eradication

Giant hogweed poses a significant risk to public health; exposure to sunlight of skin that has been in contact with the sap, even for short periods, induces Phytophotodermatitis. The discovery of such an infestation is never going to be good news for a construction client, particularly when the infestation is situated adjacent to where culvert extension works are to take place.

Ebsford carefully excavated the infestation in its entirety, following strict biosecurity guidelines at all times – this material was placed into a burial pit and capped to ensure the species can not re-create an infestation. Ebsford therefore allowed the client to go ahead with their subsequent works with a tidy and invasive species free site.
