When you need to clear your property of vegetation to make way for new construction or landscaping projects, you have several methods to choose from. The most common include the use of heavy-duty equipment like tractors and bulldozers, but there is also another option: forestry mulching. Here is what you need to know to understand the process of forestry mulching.
- Selective cutting: Many land clearing methods involve a mass clearing of all the vegetation in the area. With forestry mulching, our team at Snead’s Outdoor Services (SOS) can selectively cut down trees and other problematic vegetation, so no more is torn down than necessary.
- Fertilize the soil as we go: As we cut down the vegetation during the forestry mulching process, we turn the vegetation into mulch rather than leaving loads of debris to clear away. This leaves less work for you while the fresh layer of mulch can help fertilize the soil with nutrients for the remaining and future plants.
- No heavy equipment: You might be concerned that this method of land clearing might disturb the ground as much as all other land clearing methods, but forestry mulching only uses a single machine that is significantly smaller and lighter than a tractor or bulldozer. It also leaves a smaller carbon footprint by using less fuel.
If you are looking for ways to clear a portion of your property, forestry mulching is a great option. It can easily clear away trees, shrubs, vines, and other problematic vegetation. Contact us today if you would like to learn more.
