Take photos before you start, and as you go, always nice to look back and see the progress :bandit:

Maybe could hire a  flail mower  for  few days to clear garden & create paths etc?


Have a look at the BCS ones


Depends on how much money  & time you have e.g  brushcutter alot cheaper but takes alot longer to clear large areas.

We have just purchased a tiny cottage with 6 acres of woodland in Cornwall.  The main woodland of around 5 acres is made up of tall larch trees ... all unmaintained, most covered in creeper (clematis like vines with massive ropes hanging from them) and ivy.   It is virtually impossible to walk around the woods without being tripped by brambles and dense undergrowth.  Where should we start with clearing the undergrowth to create paths and clearings and how should we manage the trees?


Also nearer the cottage there is about half an acre of totally overgrown garden which has become brambles and dense undergrowth - we would like to clear this completely to make a manageable garden and vegetable area.


Can you advise who can help with this and how we can start our clearing programme please!
