With a range of different apparatus – during a site meeting I can advise the client on the best method of clearing the site in question, be it with:
Forestry mulcher is ideal for cutting and mulching flush to ground level up to a diameter of 6” be it Gorse, Bracken, Brambles or Sapplings. The Mulcher can be mounted either on a Tracked Skid Steer, Tractor or a Crawler Tractor. If the ground is quite Stony I can use a rotary chain cutter or Bulldozer.
On land that machines can't access, it is possible for us to clear the land using Chainsaws and Strimers and dispose of via a contolled fire or wood chipper – this method is welcomed on SSSI land.
We provide a part or a full package of ploughing, cultivating,lime and fertiliser spreading, as well as seeding, on areas where it is too steep for normal equipment to operate safely.
We operate a crawler and three point linkage mounted lime spreader for lime or any other nutrient needed on very steep land.
We use a 7 ton tracked excavator and compact tracked loader, with a gravel trailer also available.
We operate on wet or sensitive areas using low ground pressure machines.
There are two methods of controlling bracken: either by using a cutting or bruising roller, preferably twice a season.
By bruising the stem, it creates a bleed, which over time weakens the growth of the bracken.
Cutting with a mower will increase the growth of grass and other species, therefore encouraging livestock to graze and trample new bracken growth.
Both methods will take a number of years for improvement.
