Scrub Control on the Malvern Hills.

Malvern Hills Conservators www.malvernhills.org.uk contacted us to carry out some scrub control on Swinyard Hill to help them achieve their conservation objectives for the hills. Elder, hawthorn and silver birch scrub has become quite prolific on the hills and in order to control this, we were contacted to clear an area sensitively so as to minimise disruption to the remaining ground flora and high amenity value of the site. Relevant shrubs and trees for clearance were selected for felling and treatment. A mosaic of trees were retained so as provide some nesting habitat for birds and to maintain the landscaping value of the area. By removing this scrub growth, bracken growth has increased which is providing a valuable habitat for the rare high brown fritillary, which breeds on the southern slopes of these hills.
