Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds

Japanese Knotweed grows in most parts of the country, including Birmingham. Japanese knotweed is such a damaging plant that it is controlled by law. It is illegal to allow this weed to spread. Find out how to identify, control and dispose of Japanese knotweed.

If you are a Council tenant and have knotweed in your garden, please contact your local housing team for advice.

If you see Japanese knotweed or any other invasive weed in a Birmingham park or open space, please report it.
