Land Clearing

Ready for Development

 

Most projects start with clearing a site of existing trees and vegetation, but in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, trees are only removed when absolutely necessary. Every clearing operation starts with a land surveyor identifying clearing limits and marking trees that are to remain, and all trees that are to stay onsite are protected by tree barricades. On larger sites, tracked cutters and skitters are used to log the site.
