What is land clearance?

As the name would suggest, land clearance is the process of clearing a plot of land so that it effectively becomes a blank canvas. Now, it’s important to understand that generally, land clearance refers to clearing trees, vegetation and other natural foliage. Land clearance experts like our team here at GW Plant Hire will use special heavy machinery to make light work of clearing the land, such as excavators, bulldozers and diggers.

If there are any buildings or manmade structures on the site, you’ll need to have them demolished by professional demolition experts before you can clear the rest of the land.

Some of the most common land clearance work includes:

  • Tree felling Stump removal
  • Clearing vegetation
  • Green waste removal
  • Forestry mulching

Helpful questions to ask us at the beginning of your project:

  1. Do I need a permit to clear land? Answer: That’s a good Rather than a permit, it’s possible that there may be restrictions on what vegetation you can clear. In some conservation areas there are limits on tree felling. Trees on your land may be protected by a tree preservation order (TPO). If so, you won’t be able to fall, top, lop or damage any trees that come under the TPO. To find out more about TPOs in your area speak to your local council.
  2. Can I clear land myself? Answer: That depends on the extent of the vegetation on the If there are no trees and only light vegetation then you may be able to carry out the work. That said, most land clearance is a lot more intense and will involve tree felling, mulching and disposing of large amounts of waste vegetation.
