Specialist site clearance project completed by PLS Group UK

PLS Group UK were approached by a new client to carry out tree clearance works of an area of semi ancient old woodland coppice adjacent to a major reservoir chain. This was to allow re stabilisation work to the banking which had begun to move. After several weeks of planning between the client, ecology teams and expert advice from PLS Group UK, it was decided that smaller, low impact machines would be used to ensure minimal disturbance to the area. Due to the limited space, this proved a much more efficient solution, causing minimal ground disturbance.

Finally, all timber and wood chip was removed from site leaving it ready for the civils phase of works.  As usual PLS Group UK were able to complete the works within the timescale despite the challenges of terrain and extreme winter weather.

Site clearance project for long term client

PLS Group UK were asked by one of its long-term civil engineering clients to carry out the clearance of trees and vegetation across a fifteen mile stretch of countryside over farmland, railway land and through woodland areas to allow the placement of the clients heavy-duty winching equipment and scaffolding. The project was to replace existing 400kv power cables.

PLS Group utilised its mechanised division using excavators and tree shears to clear large areas quickly. Using our large excavator fed chipper, cut material was chipped on site. Our skilled chainsaw operators removed trees manually in difficult to access areas. The final touch was to grind stumps and mulch the sites using our remote machines to ensure completely flat areas were available for the installation of track way and matting, to allow wagons and  large machines access to the sites.

All this was done when faced with one of the wettest months of May on record since 1963 with no damage or disturbance to saturated land!
