Pond Creation & Ditch Management
| The addition of water into a woodland is both aesthetically pleasing as well as becoming a great source of interest and sustaining new habitats/territories for native bird life and insects. We can create small medium or large ponds for all of these reasons as well as the repairing or maintaining existing overgrown ponds.|
Ditch management is vital in certain areas where high levels of water can cause major issues especially on newly planted areas within your woodland and drainage ditches in these areas can be essential to avoid areas being flooded.
New ditches are also usually required on sites that have been clear-felled especially on sites where high precipitation is usual as the trees previously standing would have drawn up thousands of litres of water during their growing cycle and after felling some sites can become extremely waterlogged without this natural siphoning system.
