Site clearance for building & construction

One of the most important aspects in planning construction is ensuring that you do not damage neighboring properties. This means having removed all trees, bushes and other greenery from your site before any building materials are delivered, or any construction work starts. The only way to guarantee safety for everyone involved in a project is to hire a trusted arboriculturist or tree surgeon who specializes in site clearance.

Site clearance is a vital part of building construction. Trees and other vegetation that grow within a building site can be a danger if not removed correctly.

We specialise in the clearance of all types of trees and vegetation from construction and civil engineering sites for new developments, including trees in awkward positions, hedges and overhanging branches. We pride ourselves on the quality of work we are able to offer our clients.

Complete vegetation site clearance

Peter Yeates Arboriculture has tree & vegetation clearance specialists that know how to remove trees safely.  This is an invaluable service for those looking to build on a site with trees on it. Vegetation site clearance is a process that involves the removal of all types of vegetation from an area. This can be essential when it comes to development, or in cases where you need more space for your home but don’t want to harm the existing trees and plants.

We offer selected species removal, clear felling or vegetation clearing to chipping, removal of arisings, stump grinding or other site specific site clearance requirements.

The process begins with an assessment of the area you desire cleared and what types of plants & vegetation are growing in it. Our arboriculturists will then examine the trees on your property for any signs of disease or damage which would affect their ability to be trimmed back or removed completely. They will also look at overall health as well as species type, age, location within proximity to neighboring properties and other factors that may complicate removal.

Domestic site clearance services: Clearance of Trees, Roots, Hedges & Vegetation


Your garden is a place to relax and take in the fresh air. It should be your sanctuary from all of life's stresses and strains. But, if you are surrounded by overgrown hedges or trees that become too big, it can make for an uncomfortable environment. You may also need tree clearance at home because of damage caused by high winds.

The most important part about the clearance project is to find a domestic site clearance service that you can trust to get the job done well, and safely, so you don't have to worry about your property or garden in the meantime. It is also important that the service you ultimately choose is an insured company.

As many people know, there are several reasons to carry out domestic site clearance services . For starters, you could be moving home to a new property, or you might be embarking on a property renovation or extension such as a new driveway or double storey extension. In such cases, you will have to clear up the existing trees, stumps, roots and shrubs from the site; we also offer tree planting if you need privacy.

As we regularly carry out domestic site clearance services, we ensure that all of the debris is cleared up responsibly and correctly.

Forest Clearance

Forest clearance is the process of removing trees and undergrowth from land that you wish to use for other purposes. It can be a lengthy task, but with the right equipment, it can also be accomplished quickly. Many people choose to remove trees because they are in their way or they want to create space for gardens or play areas.

Woodland Clearance

In the course of our work, we have to obtain planning permission for certain jobs. One such job is forest clearance (also known as woodland clearance). This involves removing trees and brush in order to create space or clear a path through dense bush.

There are many reasons why you might want your clearing completed by professionals: Some species of tree are protected and cannot be cut down; there may be wildlife living in the area that should not be disturbed; some types of tree do not react well to being felled; it can take years for saplings to grow back into mature trees.

In either case you need professional help with forest clearance so that your peace of mind returns without any health risks posed by dangerous debris falling on pedestrians below.

Site Clearance Reviews

Took out 4 trees and ground down so ground completely flat.

"Professional, friendly service. Would highly recommend."

Tree site clearance

"Have used Pete and the team a few times now and have recommended to others. They have always turned up when agreed and completed the necessary. Following completion of the last job, we asked for a bit more to be done and they returned to do the necessary without extra cost."

Tree and shrub work for overgrown garden

"Peter had been recommended by a friend as I needed some extensive pruning of shrubs and lopping of trees in an overgrown and neglected garden. He did an excellent job and I appreciated him asking me how I wanted the garden to look rather than just going ahead with "textbook" lopping. He was polite, hardworking and courteous at all times. He left the garden clean, tidy and swept with a leaf blower at the completion. I would recommend Peter to anyone."

Cutting hedges, tidying shrubs and some pretty major tree work

"Excellent work all round. Particularly pleased with the tree work where major branches were removed giving much better shape to the trees and increased light into the garden and house. Much safer too, the trees were beginning to cause concern. The hedge cutting and tree pruning was good too. Garden looked tidy after the team had left and I was grateful for all the help given which I think was in excess of the terms we originally agreed."

Tree and shrubs cut back and debris removed

"Peter advised on work needed and did the job efficiently. I would use his company again."

Trees cut down or back, areas of garden cleared

"I would not hesitate to recommend Pete and his team for their high standard of work, problem solving where necessary, fair prices, great communication, patience and hard graft in all weathers! Thank you once again for the great job you have done so we can really enjoy our outside space."

Site Clearance FAQs

What is site clearance?

Site clearance refers to the removal of trees and other vegetation from a designated area. This process can be used for many reasons, including property preparation, construction projects or landscaping. The type of vegetation that you need to be removed depends on your needs and what you plan to do with the cleared land.

What do you do with trees when clearing land?

Generally speaking, the branches need to be chipped and the trunk sections should be cut into lengths.

Why should the site be cleared of debris before construction?

Clearing the site of debris before construction helps to ensure that the workers are safe from hazards and reduces the amount of time spent cleaning up afterward. The safety of the site and the construction crew is paramount. Debris can hinder the construction process and cause accidents.

What is used to clear a building site?

Clearing a building site is part of the construction process. It involves removing all elements that are not needed for the construction project from the area in which it will take place. This includes trees, bushes and grasses or other coverings. As such, a variety of tools (tree chippers, chainsaws, etc) must be used to remove these objects efficiently. Different machines can then be used on-site to level out and prepare it prior to beginning any work.

What is the main purpose of clearing a plot of land?

The main purpose is for new developments, building homes or extensions. Clearing a plot of land is the basic step in order to undertake any type of large-scale building & construction project. Clearing trees will make the construction site more visible and allow workers to install important infrastructure that won’t get damaged by falling branches.
