I bought a piece of rural treed land & hired a contractor to clear a 80’x120’ building lot for cottage & recreational purpose this June. In the contract I clearly specified that all trees & stubs to be removed. However, just 5 weeks after there is lots of small trees come out from the cleared surface, see attached photos. This site is located in the District of Muskoka, Ontario (150 Km north of Toronto). This contractor is tough to deal with. I hired him to build a 160 feet long “L” shape driveway with this lot, measured only 130 feet long on centerline. In response he told me driveway should always be measured from outside, which is 157 feet long. This is against common sense. However I cannot prove he is wrong, until I published his theory on this forum & got help from experienced civil engineers. Now I am facing even tougher issue: I need solid prove that he did not remove the tree stubs probably, otherwise no chance to get him back for rework. Is this lot cleared probably according to normal building lot clear procedures? Anyone can help? Thanks.
