A messy job today for Wiltshire County Council clearing the River Kennet behind St Peter’s Junior School. Trees were overhanging the watercourse which was full of wire. All in a day’s work!
Steve, Justin and Mike busy scrub spraying 197 ha on Salisbury Plain

It seemed a waste to just burn the waste timber from a scrub clearance project, so we are converting waste timber to biomass fuel by chipping.
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.
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.

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