ELMS provide services to manage vegetation, be that using machines, the hands of our skilled operators or where necessary, chemical.

Tree, Scrub and Vegetation Management

Sensitive land management operations across aquatic, terrestrial and marginal habitats.


Our expertise includes both manual and motor clearance with low ground pressure mechanised clearance for larger more accessible clearance works. ​


We also conduct follow up chemical treatment of scrub including knapsack spraying and can advise on alternative methods of regrowth control if you favour an alternative approach to chemical treatment.
