We are proud members of the Property Care Association (PCA). For us membership of the PCA means we stay informed and are updated regularly on developments concerning Japanese Knotweed and other Invasive Species.
What is the PCA
A Trade Association is a not for profit organisation made up of a collection of companies and/or individuals with common interests or who work in the same industry. The PCA sits at the heart of our industry. They act as a representative body for the industry, putting forward the collective view and position of its members. As the ‘industry voice’, the PCA speak on behalf of their members to government, agencies, regulators, the media and other opinion formers.
For us membership of the PCA means we stay informed and are updated regularly on developments concerning Japanese Knotweed and other Invasive Species. Maintaining standards is very important to us and our membership requires specified membership criteria to be met and maintained.
