Nimrod aims to operate in the most environmentally friendliest ways and after the vegetation clearance at our Ecoplug project in Ecclesfield, Sheffield, we cut back the trees, drilled holes at intervals and hammered in the Ecoplugs.
When a tree is felled or a bush sawn down the stump is left alive. Soon it will shoot new sprouts and within a few years after harvesting, there will be new growth on and around the stump. This growth increases quickly and, if no action is taken, within a short time there will be several trees where previously there was just one.
Ecoplugs were developed in Sweden and designed to deliver more efficient forestry clearance. It has been used in the Nordics for more than 10 years and its use extended to other industrial and amenity areas.
