I was wondering if anyone here could provide me with some advice with regards to putting down a driveway on woodland.
A friend of mine has some woodland through which he need to create an access road for cars. The land itself and the mature trees on it are valuable, so he doesn't want to clear any of the forested area. He has heard that when laying a road, the ground should be dug to a certain depth, and then layers of hardcore, sand etc put down. However, he has also heard that one should not dig under the actual canopy of a tree. Herein lies the problem, as the woodland is apparently quite dense and he would like to position the driveway between several quite closely spaced trees.
I'd be really grateful for any advice you might be able to give.
