The reality of developing or constructing on land in Nova Scotia often means you are faced with certain challenges the natural rugged beauty of the province can bring. One issue faced by many property owners, businesses and municipalities can be preparing a site for new construction, roads or underground services. Usually, the first step in a land development plan can be a lot clearing, and this can mean the removal of trees, shrubs, stumps and rubbish from a site.
