best way to clear grass and brambles under trees?

Posted: 27/04/2012 at 12:05

Thanks everyone! I discovered quite a number of fruit bushes already planted in straight rows in this area so I thought I would wade in and see if it were possible to make them a bit more accessible.

Some of the older allotment holders who've been on site a while said there's also 'a good plum tree' in there somewhere but I haven't definitely identified that one yet.

The other trees aren't too big, mostly less than 5 years old or less so I was hoping to chop off/dig up or otherwise kill off and remove them.

I'll try and let you know how it goes (or you will see reports of a huge fire near my area on the news if it gets out of hand...).  I'm going to keep my eye out for a tool as described as well.

I have an area approx 55 sq yards of grass and brambles and trees that I want to clear for additional veg growing.  What's the best way to remove brambles and grass?  I can't afford to spray it , and am not sure how effective laying plastic or mulch would be.  My FIL has offered to cut it back next month with his brush cutter and then have a fire to dispose of the waste. 
Tips, ideas and advice welcome (as would be an army of helpers to get it done!)
