Cost Mitigation & DNA Analysis of Invasive Species
Under Section 9 of The Wildlife and Countryside Act, it is an offence to cultivate an invasive species and the cost of remediation is normally bourne by the landowner.
However if an invasive species has arrived on or near to the proximity of your land it may be possible to claim this cost from the source landowner.
Determining where a plant originated and proving liability is a complex area however using evidence based technics such as drone surveys and DNA analysis the source plant can be calculated. Where a landowner is found not to have taken action to treat and remove the source plant a claim can be pursued.
