HABITAT CREATION AND CONTRACTING
FENCING AND EXCLUSION
Before development can begin, a site may require ecological clearance. This may involve the installation of specialist fencing, pitfall traps and other devices. We offer complete supply and installation services for a range of species, including water voles, reptiles, great crested newts, badgers, deer and rabbits. Our team of contractors are experts in installing fencing in difficult ground and terrain such as quarries, mines and brownfield sites.
We can design, create and restore habitats for wildlife on brownfield and rural sites. Our habitat creation projects in the past have included: bird and bat boxes, herpetile hibernacula, herpetile ponds, wetland habitat area, mixed habitat over extensive areas, grasslands and meadows.
Invasive plants can cause a serious problem not only on development sites but also in ecologically sensitive areas. We advise on the most appropriate approach to dealing with the problem on a case by case basis. We can control for species such as Japanese knotweed and giant hogweed.
Before development can start, a site will often need to be cleared of vegetation. In the first instance we can provide advice on suitable site management, which can minimise time and costs associated with any clearance works required later. We undertake all types of vegetation clearance works, from large scale mechanised site clearance, to vegetation clearance on ecologically sensitive sites using hand tools.
