Site Clearance

Either acting as a principal contractor complying with all CDM regulations or working as a sub-contractor, Edwards Woodland Services undertake all types of tree and vegetation clearance. Projects and contracts vary in size from the removal of a few trees to allow for extension of a car park, to the clearing of a corridor for a new section of road.

Please see below examples of recent works.

Penloyn to Llanrwst (Tan Lan)
Advanced Road Scheme Works, North to South Wales Trunk Road
Client: North Wales Trunk Roads Agency

As principal contractor this project involved the large scale removal of trees and vegetation as advanced works.

Hazards and challenges included:

A470 carriageway width restrictions and requirement to maintain traffic flow; neighbouring railway line; ground conditions including wet areas and steep embankments; potential bat roost trees involving safe dismantling under the supervision of a licensed bat officer; neighbouring properties and land.

This project involved liaising with Network Rail, the Emergency Services, Scottish Power, ecologists and landowners.

The project was successfully completed to schedule.


Maentwrog Hydro Electric Pipeline Tree Clearance
Client: Ground Control

This project involved removal of approximately 550 tonne, and up to 90ft in height, of mainly conifer trees alongside a 10ft wide hydro electric pipeline over a distance of 1km. The trees were either winched and/or dismantled, then extracted over and under the pipe to the nearest wagon loading point situated another 1km away over farmland.

Challenges included:

Crossing watercourses running into a SSSI; crossing a property access track; negotiating overhead cables; inclement and highly changeable weather conditions. Diverse project complexities necessitated continual liaison with all parties involved, at every stage.

The project was successfully completed on schedule.

Client: Dawnus Construction

Having successfully completed the site clearance works on the Interim Scheme, Edwards Woodland Services returned to Gelligemlyn to complete a project for Dawnus due to unsuccessful completion by another contractor.

Challenges within this project included:

Narrow carriageway widths; steep, loose embankments; watercourses running into a SSSI.

This project was successfully completed ahead of schedule.
