About Practicality Brown

Practicality Brown are environmental contractors based in Iver, Buckinghamshire.

We deliver market-leading tree and vegetation clearance services to our diverse portfolio of civil engineering, construction, land management, and forestry clients, from this central location.

Operating for over 35 years, Practicality Brown was founded by managing director Alastair Beddall and became incorporated in 1987. Our sister companies offer mature trees and hedgerows and high-quality biomass woodchip and share our 35,000 m2 site, located close to the M25 and major transport links. 

Environmental contracting

As pioneers of whole tree chipping, excavator-mounted tree shears and the use of the AHWI tracked forestry mulchers our commitment to environmentally sustainable land management through quality operations remains at our core.

Over the last 35 years, our business has continually evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of the construction and forestry industries we serve.

During the 1980s Practicality Brown became the first UK company to develop no-burn tree clearance thanks to Forestry Commission contracts. This pioneering practice fundamentally changing how large-scale tree and land clearance was actioned, driving efficiency, and reducing environmental impact.

We have consistently nurtured the specialist knowledge of our in-house teams, to become market leaders in mechanised vegetation clearance. In more recent years, we again became pioneers as we developed sensitive land clearance models and environmental best practice technologies to support woodland translocation, and biomass fuel production.
