Invasive non-native species (INNS) are a major problem in Scotland. Giant Hog Weed, Japanese Knot Weed and Himalayan Balsam are especially widespread and dangerous. The problem is national and in particular in areas described as “wild land” and river courses. Some plants are very dangerous to people and animals causing severe burns with the risk of death. The above mentioned INNS block out sunlight and kill native species of plants. We have discussed this issue with land owners and farmers, Fishery Trusts, SNH, SWLT, Moray Council and other agencies. All admit that the problem we are describing is a national problem with no statutory powers in Scotland to prevent the INNS from growing and spreading.
