Bush-hoggin! The Benefits of Land Clearing Services

Posted On: 6 September

Overgrown fields, dense forests, and bushy land can make property inaccessible and unusable. Without accessible land, you can’t utilize the space for productive livestock pastures, agricultural use, or building projects. Fortunately, professional land clearing services offer an efficient solution to reclaim and open up your property.

Regain Usable Space with Land Clearing

Having raw land overtaken by brush, briars, saplings, and trees can be frustrating, limiting how the space can be used. Clearing the land properly solves that problem by removing excess vegetation. The right land clearing methods, tools, and professionals can reestablish open space, allowing you to use the land beneficially.

Once cleared and opened up, the land provides a blank canvas to add fencing for livestock, develop home sites, plant orchards or crops, and more. In many cases, land clearing increases the value of rural properties by enhancing function and expanding possibilities. It represents an important first step toward improving and capitalizing on acreage.

Three Key Methods for Land Clearing

Professional land clearing contractors use several methods to remove vegetation and open property. The most common modern techniques include:

  • Brush Clearing

Using heavy-duty mowers and mulching equipment, crews can plough through brush and small trees up to 3 inches thick. Rotary cutters chew through the growth, leaving behind beneficial wood chip mulch. This is quick and efficient for clearing young saplings and shrubbery.

  • Bush Hogging

For clearing larger expanses covered in brush, bush hogging is ideal. Tractors outfitted with wide rotary cutters mow down fields and acres of briars, bushes, scrub brush, and saplings up to 6 inches thick. The cutting implements mulch up the debris during mowing.

  • Forestry Mulching

Where larger trees and vegetation need removal, forestry mulchers are the machines for the job. They utilize carbide teeth grinding implements to chew through and grind down trees up to 14 inches thick. Using mulchers eliminates the need to haul debris away.

Professional land clearing contractors have the right mix of modern equipment to assess your property and determine the appropriate technique. Often a combination of methods is required to clear different vegetation types.
