Vegetation management

Site Clearance and Vegetation Management

Trained and equipped to the highest level, our skilled vegetation management specialists promise you a comprehensive and environmentally-conscious service.

Left unattended and subject to adverse weather, vegetation can quickly cause major disruption. It’s our job to meticulously plan and execute vegetation clearance, removing obstructions while respecting and protecting the environment. This is often done on a huge scale, in high-risk scenarios and always adhering to the most stringent safety standards.

We’re also responsible for surveying and maintaining vegetation within vast geographical areas.

We work hand-in-hand with highways agencies and police both pre-emptively and on an emergency response basis. Our work ensures vegetation doesn’t obstruct either existing roads or those under construction.


We’re in constant contact with DNOs and other utility providers to prevent vegetation from causing issues with the essential services we all rely on. One day this might involve routine maintenance, and the next we could be undertaking large-scale clearance under power outage.

Site clearance

Vegetation removal is a crucial part of preparing sites for big projects like housing construction. We’re highly experienced in clearing large areas, and if that’s what you require, a wide variety of factors – including complex ecological considerations – will determine the best approach.

Our environmental commitment

We can carry out an Environmental Impact Assessment on your site before any work begins, with support from our in-house ecologists and arborists. The findings dictate precisely how we’ll approach things, abide by environmental legislation and compensate for any disruption to wildlife.
