Online Surveyor Training: Bamboos and other Invasive Grasses

We are generally more familiar with Japanese Knotweed and the damage it can do to the built environment, but with Bamboos and other Invasive Weed grasses commonly found around the UK and causing similar issues, should we be better informed and prepared to tackle the problems these invasive plants cause?

This online training does exactly that!. For those who want to enhance their knowledge and learn more about these invasive plants, this course will develop your skills in the identification, assessment and management of these Bamboos and other Grasses.
