Site clearance

 

We provide onsite management, equipment and staff to clear sites of trees and vegetation in an ecologically sensitive way, leaving it ready for development. We can carry out large scale vegetation clearance works using the following machinery:

  • 110hp and 50HP specialist tractor with HD flail attachments
  • CAT 279 tracked skid steer with forestry mulcher
  • 3t – 20t excavators with grab attachments
  • Tractor with PTO chipper

Once sites have been subjected to ecological mitigation works and the translocation exercise is complete, we carry out destructive searches. A destructive search is the final stage of a translocation exercise. It involves the removal of the vegetation that provided suitable habitat for the protected species. The destructive search prevents re-colonisation of the area by the protected species.
