Vegetation clearance – one step ahead 

Twig uses innovative vegetation clearance techniques to rapidly clear sites for development, which is possible as a result of our many years of experience working in sensitive habitats and with protected species.

Our ecologically focused Project Managers are committed to remaining one step ahead of your development programme, working alongside you every step of the way to deliver the project on time and in full.

Our Habitat Management and Vegetation Clearance services include:

Sensitive staged cutting

Vegetation clearance should be undertaken with care from March to September to avoid disturbance to nesting birds and other wildlife in accordance with the 1981 WCA.  If works are necessary outside of the optimal periods, pre-commencement checks are undertaken and results recorded to ensure that all tasks fall within best practice guidelines with appropriate, trained ecological supervision.

Cutting and clearance off site

We can remove waste material and dispose off site, recycling materials where possible (i.e. chipping and composting) to avoid the impact of landfill. Where possible vegetation can be kept onsite to enhance habitat for target species whilst reducing costs. Twig has a waste carriers license, that allows us to move arisings from the site.

Hibernacula creation

Twig offers Habitat Creation for species such as reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. The hibernacula are constructed from a variety of materials; logs stone and turf, topped with soil then seeded or finished with turf, making the optimum hibernacula for reptiles and amphibians.
