Managing and minimising environmental impact

At PB Forestry we understand that our works have impacts on the environment and ecology and we look to manage, minimise and offset these impacts at all times.  As a company we plant far more trees and shrubs annually than we clear, working on large landscaping and environmental improvement projects for our clients.

All the clearance work we undertake is managed by ecology, with works only taking place when permitted and within the ecological constraints.  We are used to working in sensitive woodlands, and on construction clearance works with ecological requirements.  We have worked with sites with slow worms, bats, badgers, reptiles, protected birds, invasive species, and protected flora and fauna.

Our works have included building of badger sets to allow relocation, translocation of hedges, turf relocation, installation of bat and bird boxes, creation of habitats.  Using hydroseeding techniques we have created wildflower seeded site screening bunds that are visually stunning and great for increasing habitat and biodiversity.

Our selection of machinery and tools allow us to work on a range of projects within the ecological requirements, considering issues such as ground pressure and vegetation cut height.

We operate an environmental management system to ISO14001.
