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.
