Commentary

Hi Kyle,
Thanks for reporting! This knotweed site is on our radar. We mailed a permit of entry letter earlier this year, but not response. Your photo of the realtor sign & phone # helps...we’ll try giving him a call and following up on the POE letter. I’ll update the hotline if I have any news. Knotweed can lower property values & grow through the foundation...it’s really in their best interest for us to treat. And we don’t want it to spread if they excavate & dump the soil somewhere else. Thanks again!
Kind regards,
Tyler
