Clearing & Grubbing in Atlanta

General contractors and site companies who purchase land in the Atlanta area, or who are hired by landowners, must clear and grub the land before it can be developed.

What is clearing and grubbing?

Clearing: the removal and disposal of underbrush, vegetation, and trees.

Grubbing: the removal of roots and stumps that may remain in the ground after surface cleaning.

Once clearing and grubbing are completed, your site is ready for grading, storm drain, and underground utility installation.

Important: Before attempting clearing and grubbing your Atlanta property, check with your local government regarding permits. All private and commercial sites require permitting before any clearing can take place. A Land Disturbance Permit (LDP) is required when clearing one acre of land or more.

Government concerns:

  • You may need a permit to clear the land.
  • Is your land home to protected species? Are there other environmental protections unique to your land?
  • You will need to be familiar with rules on tree removal and composting.
  • Do you need to be concerned with erosion control?

Utility concerns:

  • Is there gas or electric lines buried on your property?
  • Is there a septic tank or other plumbing structures present on the property?
