Site clearing is an essential project that must be done before any construction project can kick off on the intended site. Proper clearing will help to prepare the piece of land for the intended purpose; be it industrial earthworks or building. The site must be cleared properly so that the construction project can go unhindered. The process is a relatively complex one and occurs in various stages; each of these stages has its challenges. Some of the items that need to be removed from a site to be cleared for construction purpose are debris, unwanted structures, soil, trees, vegetation and so on.
Clearing does not only involve removing trees and vegetation; it equally involves the removal of debris and other items that can constitute a nuisance in the course of the construction work. If the site is covered with vegetation, anyway, you will first have to clear the vegetation before you pick up the debris or dirt that may want to obstruct the construction process. All the undergrowth need to be cleared away and this will provide more space for the equipment required for the construction project, as well as, provide space for the construction workers you have hired for the project. Clearing away the undergrowth will provide more space for professional tree cutters to cut down any tree that may be cluttering the construction site and hampering the construction project.
The tree cutting process is somewhat comprehensive and should only be handled by trained professionals, which is why it is important to hire a professional for the tree cutting service. First of all, the tree must be cut down to its stump followed by the removal of the stump. The stumps are better removed by grounding, which will help to completely remove them from the surface so that you can proceed with the construction work unhindered. After removing the stumps, you can then remove the roots to prevent future cracking in the concrete and buildings.
After you have removed the flora, you should get rid of the heavy materials, like large rocks that may hinder the construction project. Also, you should look around for underlying burrows or weak points on the site and fill it with clay or any other solid material; this will make adequate space available for workers. You do not have to do any of these things by yourself; you can simply contact tree service companies to help out. At Tree Service Greensboro, NC, we will not only cut and remove trees from the site; we will also help to clear away the debris so that the site can be adequately cleared for the construction project to begin.
Get a clearing permit
You are required to obtain an environmental clearing permit before you can proceed with the site clearing. You must also obtain and fill out the permit before you start any form of clearing on that site. The government requires that you also document the clearing events and practices adopted. The company helping you with the clearing must also be known for good practice, which is why you need us at Tree Service Greensboro, NC for the effective clearing of your site. The tree removal practice and everything else done on the site in preparation for the construction project must be in line with government regulations. You will need a clearing permit especially if your clearing intention is ineligible for the exemption.
Clearing permits are of different types and you can be guided about which one to obtain by an arborist. The type of clearing permit to obtain depends on the area and site that you want to clear. You may have to go for either a purpose permit or an area permit.
