Practicality Brown is a specialist contractor offering tree and vegetation clearance services to the forestry, utility and construction markets.

Experience

Having pioneered whole tree chipping in the UK on a commercial scale in 1985, the company has extensive experience of mechanised vegetation clearance, introducing Ahwi Mulchers in 1999 and the use of mechanised Tree Shears in 2002.

No-burn rapid clearance

PBL's in-house teams specialise in the rapid clearance of land and complete tree removal without the need for burning; using specialist equipment from its extensive forestry operations to complement highly competent conventional chainsaw operatives, PBL is able to minimise programme length, noise and cost.

Woodland and heathland clearance

As a market leader in premium wood fuel production in the south east, Practicality Brown offers a complete market for any timber; from low value wood chip to firewood and high value sawlog products. Usually, PBL will fell mature trees for timber, whilst smaller lumber is used for the wood fuel market. According to clients’ requirements, felled sites can be mulched to facilitate replanting or to reduce vermin habitat, all work is carried out by in-house staff and equipment without the use of sub-contractors

Recycle: waste timber, scrub vegetation and small trees

Timber of any size, brash from felled trees, scrub vegetation and roots that have not been chipped or sold as timber can be mulched using a high power forestry mulcher. The mulched arisings can be recycled into the ground as humus thus eliminating the need for costly removal to landfill.

Practicality Brown pioneered this approach to dealing with vegetation that could not be recycled back in the 1990s; it is now the industry's accepted approach on all sites where slight nutrient enrichment is not a concern.

Removal: tree stumps and roots

Tree stumps of any size are grubbed up by excavator and mulched by a forestry mulcher for incorporation into the topsoil strip or scrapped and carted away as required. This efficient method maximises the amount of side root removed and ensures that following trades can proceed without encountering hidden roots. Tree stumps close to structures or services can be wholly or partly ground out where necessary using a pedestrian-operated wheeled or tracked stump grinder.

Reputation

Practicality Brown has an enviable reputation for its ability to respond to clients' requirements, offering an extensive range of in-house trained resources, and specialist equipment. The company ensures all compliance and certification requirements are met.
