Land Clearing in Atlanta

General contractors and site companies who purchase land in the Atlanta area or are hired by landowners must clear the land before it can be developed. That’s where AKA comes in!


What is land clearing?

Clearing is the removal and disposal of underbrush, vegetation, and trees. Grubbing removes roots and stumps that may remain in the ground after surface cleaning.

Once clearing is completed, your site is ready for grading, storm drain, and underground utility installation. Before clearing your Atlanta, Athens, or Oconee County 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 needed 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 tree removal and composting rules.

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?
