Breney Common Nature Reserve is a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) in Cornwall, home to a variety of rare and endangered wildlife, including several species of butterflies. However, over the years, the woodland area that runs through the reserve has become overgrown and dense. This started blocking the butterfly population from crossing through the woodland. This hurt the butterfly population, as they rely on open spaces and nectar sources to feed and breed.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust, the organisation that manages the reserve, wanted to restore the habitat for the butterflies and other wildlife and improve the ecological value of the woodland. They needed a professional and reliable contractor who could carry out the tree clearance and stump removal work while minimising the disturbance to the existing wildlife and the landscape.
