The Importance of Countryside Management

Date: January 29, 2016

Operating throughout East Anglia the CGM Group has gained experience working in a range of rural environments and our current client base offers a diversity of work that other contractors would struggle to emulate.

With the east of England being subjected to drainage for agricultural and residential development the requirement to maintain waterways is a high priority and CGM Group has been involved with vegetation and in channel management for a number of years leading to the purchase of specialised machinery and plant.

From our Agricultural tractors with flail attachments through to low ground pressure Reform mowers, robot controlled flail mowers our fleet of plant can carry out vegetation management on steep banks and remote areas.
Control of in channel weed and vegetation growth can also be completed by our operators carrying the appropriate qualifications and using weed cutting boats by our RYA trained operators.

Our specialist vegetation management fleet is also used extensively in highway verge maintenance ensuring growth is kept clear of the highway, verges, culverts and street furniture along with winter hedge flailing to ensure rural hedges are maintained.

Wherever CGM Group carries out work the environment is carefully considered whether carrying out an inspection for nesting birds before hedge cutting, surveying for protected species in the waterways such as Water voles or liaising with clients to ensure requirements of Stewardship schemes are followed.
