Weed control

Non native species

Non native plant species are those that have been brought in to the country by humans.  There are many non native species in Scotland. A small number of these cause damage to the environment, the economy, our health and the way we live.  These are called invasive non native species.

The Scottish Government website provides details of non native species.
