|Brush cutting is mainly utilised for path and ride maintenance, this equipment can also be used for invasive species control, a clearing saw also allows for unwanted non native small-medium trees like Alder to be cut out before they take a hold. |
Path & ride clearance serves two purposes; it keeps invasive species like alder & Birch at bay as well as clearing rides of bramble and other fast growing invasive weeds. This allows other native fauna to take hold; species that attract butterflies and other insects and vertebrate along these transect routes.
Keeping the wood open in these areas enables the continued maintenance of the woodland and allows public rights of way (PRoW) and bridle ways to remain open.
