Here at Southern Ecological Solutions, we deal with a wide array of environmental issues on a daily basis. Brash and arboricultural arisings are a prime example of something we deal with fairly regularly, but it is unlikely that many people outside of our industry would be familiar with what exactly the term refers to.

When a large quantity of biomass is located and identified as low value (i.e. the kind of mass that would be used for composting or similar uses), it is referred to as brash and arboricultural arisings. When it is left to its own devices in a woodland area, it is often harmless and valuable to the surrounding environment as it returns all the nutrients and organic matter into the soil below, as well as carbon dioxide back into the surrounding atmosphere. In the main, brash and arboricultural arisings take the form of small branches, twigs and leaves, so is easily recognisable in a woodland area.

Removal of brash and arboricultural arisings usually come from small scale site excavations, tree surgeries or park management in areas surrounding railways, roads and new developments. It is often the case that proprietors and project managers will not want the biomass to be left to its own devices and decompose if it is in a particularly public area, and this is where our team at Southern Ecological Solutions come into play.

Our expert team will come and remove any brash and arboricultural arisings from the area in a safe and eco-friendly manner. We strongly advise against destroying these mounds yourself, as doing so in an environment that is not controlled will cause the biomass to release extremely potent natural gases and may cause damage to those around the area.
