Land Clearing And Tree Loppers

Land clearing or tree lopping is the process of removing areas of trees and other obstructions so that building can commence there. This is a service used by a range of different individuals and organisations that need to develop on land whether it’s for commercial ventures, for the development of new properties or another purpose. For instance if an individual wants to build their own home then they might utilise land clearing services in order to clear a plot of land they have purchased ready for construction to begin. Meanwhile a business might require the land to be cleared that they have purchased so that they can begin a new venture – opening a shop or restaurant there for instance. In other cases an individual or a business might require land clearing in the properties they are already using in order to clear more space so that they can expand or build other sites on their land. Meanwhile a council might utilise land clearing services in order to prepare a rural area for development. From there they then might construct council housing for instance, or maybe a new tourist attraction. In any of these cases land clearing prepares the way so that the ground is flat and safe enough to be constructed on.

Land clearing consists of a range of different services and it’s important that this is performed by specialists and not by the land owners themselves in order to get the best results. Tree loppers are arborists or other kinds of tree specialists and this means that they can remove the trees correctly and safely. This will ensure that for instance the trees do not leave routes behind or stumps that can regrow. This can be a serious problem as if the routes are not completely removed they can continue to grow underneath a property and thereby disturb the foundations or damage the walls. If a tree is growing near the site of a building then the same can happen when the routes and the tree spread.

Likewise trees need to be removed carefully using a series of pulleys, ropes, chainsaws and more in order to take the trees down in stages. Failure to do this will result in the tree collapsing and crushing anything that can get below it – or even knocking over more trees and creating a domino effect. This can result in property damage but more importantly it can also be highly dangerous for those felling the trees or others in the area if they should be hit by a collapsing tree.

When using tree loppers you need to ensure for these reasons that they are specially qualified and licensed and that they are insured against damage. This is important as in some cases things can still go wrong even when experts are in charge and this can leave you in problem. You should get a quote first too when using such services and ask precisely what is included in that price – wood chipping, stump grinding, mulching and removal of the fallen trees are all useful.
