Welcome to Munro Weed Control, specialists in highway/footway, Japanese knotweed and other invasive weed control services.
Munro Weed Control was founded in 1990 and has over 25 years experience in the Industry.
During that time the supply and application of herbicides was changing. Strict controls were put into place by government and acts of parliament passed to control all aspects of the industry, this is never more important than today, our working practices and approach to weed control is to protect the environment and create a sustainable future.
From day one we were able to grow the company along side the new legislation and help our customers comply with all the responsibilities they and we had. Within a very short time we were contracting for large local authorities in the North of England mainly on highway contracts, controlling the weed growth in kerbs and channels and on footpaths. Treating over 20,000Km per year.
