Japanese Knotweed Control has expanded its team in the south and south east with the appointment of Sven Janssen (34).
Sven joins the company’s London office with responsibility for delivering treatment programmes for its growing number of public sector and private clients experiencing knotweed problems.
Sven, from North London, has worked in the horticultural sector for the past ten years, initially involved in a number of conservation projects overseas, before returning to the UK. He previously worked with Japanese Knotweed Control’s regional director for the south and south east, Dee Laverty and, as her workload increased with a number of London borough council projects, Sven was delighted to join the business as a full time treatment specialist.
Following comprehensive training in the treatment methods for non-native invasive plants, including the company’s innovative stem injection technique, Sven is now involved in the hands-on delivery of treatment programmes throughout the capital and beyond. Although local authority work accounts for most of the company’s business in the region, domestic projects are increasing, particularly amongst home owners looking to buy or sell properties with a knotweed problem.
