When Do You Need Land Clearing Services?

There are several reasons why land clearing may be needed. One of the most common reasons we’re called for land clearing is preparation for construction. Land clearing helps remove any obstacles that may hinder the construction process, such as trees, rocks, and other debris.

Other reasons our land clearing services are requested include:

  • Aesthetics: Overgrown or cluttered areas can be unsightly and diminish a property’s overall appeal. Clearing these areas can help improve the property’s appearance and the enjoyment of its occupants.
  • Agricultural purposes: Removing unwanted vegetation is often an important step in preparing the land for farming or grazing animals.
  • Safety: By removing dead trees, overgrown brush, and other hazards, land clearing minimizes the risk of accidents and injuries.

What Method Is Used to Clear Land?

Many different methods are used in land clearing, depending on the specific needs of a property and its terrain.

Some common techniques include:

  • Manual clearing: This involves clearing small areas using hand tools such as axes, chainsaws, and shovels.
  • Mechanical clearing: For larger areas or heavy vegetation, mechanical equipment such as bulldozers, excavators, and mulchers are used for faster and more efficient results.
  • Chemical clearing: This method involves using herbicides to kill unwanted plants and vegetation. It’s typically used in conjunction with other clearance methods.

Each method has its advantages and may be used alone or in combination with others to achieve the desired results.

How Do You Get Rid of Roots in Cleared Land?

When clearing land, we remove the above-ground vegetation as well as plant roots and stumps. If left behind, these remnants can grow back and undo all the hard work put into clearing the area.

There are a few methods for getting rid of roots in cleared land:

  • Stump grinding: Using a machine with rotating blades to grind down tree stumps and large roots below ground level.
  • Excavation: Digging out the roots and stumps with heavy machinery such as excavators.
  • Chemical treatment: Herbicides can also be used to kill off the remaining roots after manual or mechanical clearing. This is especially useful for smaller roots that may be difficult to remove physically.

What Should You Do With Trees After Land Clearing?

Once trees have been cleared from your land, it’s important to dispose of the resulting wood and organic material effectively.

Here are some options for handling trees after land clearing:

  • Chipping: The branches and smaller pieces of wood can be chipped into mulch, which can then be used as a natural ground cover or compost.
  • Firewood: Larger logs and branches can be cut and split for firewood, providing a sustainable source of heat.
  • Recycling: Trees can also be taken to recycling centers, where they’ll be turned into lumber or other useful products.
  • Replanting: If the goal of land clearing is to make room for new development, it may be beneficial to replant native trees and plants in the cleared area. This can help prevent erosion and maintain biodiversity.

These are all responsible ways of managing trees and wood after land clearing.
