What Is Land Clearing?
Also known as lot clearing, land clearing removes foliage such as trees, tree stumps, debris, shrubbery, boulders, and other large obstacles from a property. While it’s typically done to prepare land for future real estate and commercial development, it can also be used for lands that will be used for hunting and farming.
Why Is Land Clearing Important?
The most recognized benefit of land clearing is that you can make the land usable, which makes it more valuable. However, there are several key benefits of using professional land and lot clearing services, including:
- Increases Safety – A clear area for construction and development increases the safety of the working environment for construction workers and equipment operators by removing any potential hazards and obstructions. If trees on the property are diseased or decaying, they could fall and cause personal and property damage. Removing older or hazardous trees that could delay construction will increase the safety of the land and streamline the development process.
- Promotes Healthy Growth – Removing excess, diseased, or dying trees can improve the health of remaining trees if you want to keep some of the existing foliage. When land is crowded with trees and foliage, the chances of survival for any vegetation are reduced due to the increased risk of spreading diseases and root systems being destroyed. Smaller plants and trees might also risk not getting enough sun due to larger trees blocking them. Clearing the land will help new and existing vegetation thrive.
- Improves Soil Quality – When you clear land, you help rejuvenate its soil. When excess trees and brush are removed, the soil can start to regenerate with nutrients. Natural mulch created by the land clearing process is worked into the soil and helps nourish it for future growth.
How to Prepare for Lot and Land Clearing Services
Our professional arborists take a few important steps to prepare the land for our land clearing services. To ensure the process goes smoothly and safely, our tree experts:
- Prepare complete personal protective equipment (PPE)
- Survey the area to identify what equipment will be needed
- Thoroughly check and re-check everything on the property
- Set emergency safety protocol in place
What Are the Most Common Land Clearing Methods?
There are a few different ways to perform land clearing. Our professional arborists can determine which method would be most effective for your property once they’ve completed a thorough assessment. Some of the most common methods used to clear land include:
- Cut & Grind – The cut and grind land clearing method is best for a property with small trees. Once the brush and weeds have been cleared, we use top-of-the-line equipment to take the trees down. We use additional equipment such as bulldozers, backhoes, and trucks to remove the leftover stumps.
- Pushover – The pushover land clearing method involves pushing huge trees and other obstructions using machines such as bulldozers and backhoes.
- Pulling – The pulling land cleaning method involves attaching chains to a tractor or other heavy machinery and the tree and pulling it away. This method might seem simple, but it has several limitations and doesn’t work well for large trees and obstructions.
- Pile & Burn – This inexpensive and simple way of clearing land might seem easy, but it can also be extremely dangerous. The pile and burn method involves arranging all the cleared foliage into a pile and burning the pile. If the burn isn’t controlled or the wind is strong, you could risk starting a fire on your property. It’s crucial to allow a professional and experienced arborist to assist with any type of land clearing services.
