Forestry mulching is the process of land clearing particularly sensitive land areas that can’t be cleared using traditional machinery. Sensitive land includes ones that already have vegetation growing on them or don’t benefit from the standard land clearing tractors and excavators that typically clear land for building new projects. Forestry mulching is often useful for land that is to be used for wildlife preservation, fire prevention, and promoting new, sustainable growth (such as parks, reservations, and ecosystems).
Unlike the standard machines that are used to clear land the traditional way, forestry mulching usually only requires one machine to be used and come in different ranges, depending on the condition of the land that needs to be cleared. Heavy duty forestry mulching machines can easily clear several acres of vegetation or sensitive land and much quicker than the standard land clearing machines can. However, their objectives are slightly different and aren’t able to excavate, chip, or grind, trees and tree stumps like other machines would in traditional land clearing methods. Forestry mulching machines can clear trees with little damage to the surrounding soil, while continually mulching the land as it’s cleared prevents potential erosion.
The process of forestry mulching includes using a specialized machine that removes the top layer of brush and other materials from the land that could prevent healthy growth to vegetation or dry out the soil beneath it. The process is often preferred for areas where wildlife still lives off of the land and rely on it for resources. Damaging the land during traditional land clearing can ward off wildlife and make it more difficult for any existing vegetation to continually grow or prosper. Therefore, our experts make it a priority to ensure that the land needing clearing can benefit from forestry mulching before the process begins.
Forestry mulching is also a great way to preserve and clear large-scale spaces of land. Forestry mulching machines can readily clear several acres of land in a little space of time, making it easier for those that raise livestock and vegetation to upkeep their land and resources. As the land clearing pros, we’re able to also take on large-scale projects, regardless of the size of land. Many contact us for forestry mulching services as they are overwhelmed with how to care for several acres of land on their own and we’re able to help them do just that!
Sensitive land refers to land and soil that contains vegetation and other minerals that wildlife relies on. While it may seem simple enough to clear such land using traditional land clearing methods and machines, the exact opposite is recommended for land that has vegetation needed for preservation. Standard land clearing methods can often reduce the amount of vegetation available or damage the soil and lead to erosion. Forestry mulching, instead, can help retain the healthy amounts of vegetation on sensitive land, while mulching after clearing helps sustain the land from erosion and continues to make the process more environmentally friendly.
