Site clearance in Westbury for next 2 weeks so needed the big toys to speed up the job!

Linden Homes are building a new development at Westbury by the station. So as to avoid disturbing nesting birds we needed to cut and chip large volumes of scrub and over-mature thorn and hedging. This was cut to a height of one metre and chipped on site.

The next phase will be to winching up and removing the trees from the lake and reducing larger oak trees, along with fitting cable bracing.

Mulching Dartmoor and Bovey Tracey in Devon

Tristan has been busy mulching with the Seppi flail and reverse-drive Valtra…

Firstly a 6 ha site near Dinton around juniper bushes and then off to Dartmoor for more of the same the following day.  The poor quality of video is due to the bullet proof window !!

Tristan then went on to Bovey Tracey in Devon – just east of Dartmoor for a site clearance before this became a tip.



Wadswick Green, Corsham

Our work at Wadswick Green, Corsham continues… This is the new retirement village.

The pictures show the results of our efforts after two days’ strimming and brush cutting – all previously covered in brambles and nettles and an eyesore.   And, look!  We found a pond!!  The second image shows watering of freshly planted shrub beds due to lack of rain.

See here for further details of some of the work we’ve undertaken for Wadswick Green.

Scrub Clearance on Salisbury Plain

Monday and storm Imogen’s wind and rain kept us away from crop spraying and tree dismantling. So a little light relief was found with scrub clearance on Salisbury Plain to keep Steve, Dan, Scott, Rich and Matt happy.

Mulching in Great Cheverell and Corby

Here’s a couple of youtube snippets for you to see of our team mulching

Firstly Tristan tackling 4m high blackthorn re-growth


And secondly, our project before Christmas in December 2015 when we undertook an 80ha mulching contract in Corby, Northamptonshire

We were clearing from a former steelworks site now ready for industrial planning.

EssentialArb article

Did you see our article in essentialARB?

It was in the Autumn edition, on pages 38-39 and is a snapshot of what we do.
“If there’s ever a job advert for someone to look after a war zone, then William Warden has to be the man for the job.  Who else has a CV that takes in looking after the battlegrounds of Salisbury Plain, surrounded by tanks, troops and helicopters to say nothing of fast jets plying their trade?  And if the mulcher stops dead in its tracks, then the culprit is probably an old shell or maybe a piece of tank track”…
