Clearing Trees in a wooded area

An ordered site that’s safe and accessible?
Our site clearance service can make it happen

If trees or vegetation are overgrowing – if there's a growth posing a safety hazard or limiting access to your property – it needs to cleared. Central Tree Surgeons’ site clearance service in West Lothian can do it. We work across the region, including in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Falkirk and Lanarkshire.

No job too big or too small

Our site clearance service is available no matter the scale of the job, whether it’s anything from the garden at the front of your home or a complete building site. Each job is treated with care, dedication, and attention to detail to ensure that you get the perfect blank slate to begin your new project.

Neat, speedy and cost-effective

Site clearance is where trees, scrub and roots are mulched by our forestry mulcher on a 310hp Fendt tractor and 500hp tracked crawler mulcher along with a small alpine tractor mulcher for no ground pressure sites. This machine will cope with any type of tree or root, no matter the size, so that it’s mulched wood in no time at all.

Due to the high costs associated with landfill usage, minimising debris through site clearance operations has become a cost-effective solution, particularly for the disposing of wood on new build sites, estates, and woodlands. This approach is especially advantageous in the context of wood waste management, as it efficiently reduces the volume of material that would otherwise require landfill space.


The prevalence of non-burn sites, as mandated by SEPA (Scottish Environment Protection Agency) regulations, further underscores the importance of such clearance operations. In areas where burning wood is not a permissible option due to environmental controls, site clearance stands out as an effective and environmentally responsible method for managing and disposing of wood debris.

Specialised machinery

The forestry mulcher is a specialised machine, which we use frequently on sites of every kind, from new build estates to golf courses. We can clear gorse, heather and scrub, as well as whole mature trees. It’s a versatile machine that can contend with any kind of wooded material, no matter the size or the terrain.


Covering massive plots of land within a single day, the forestry mulcher is one of the most advanced and cost-effective clearance machines on the market today. We can provide the machine and the service all over Scotland, but offer a rapid response service in the Central Scotland area, including in Glasgow and Edinburgh.
