Well Its the New Year and its off to a good start! This particular entry I will be explaining the methods and levels of Land Clearing in comparison to basic Underbrushing.
Land Clearing is the complete and or selective clearing of a piece of property for recreational,Agricultural or commercial use depending on the property owners desired end use.
Generally Land clearing is done with a bulldozer or excavator the size or number of pieces of equipment use will depend on the size of the property being cleared. When doing so often the land owner or contractor will select mature hardwoods or any tree visually appealing to be left at intervals in order to provide shade for animals or people or to add appeal to the property being cleared. When the trees and brush is removed the next step is to use a dozer blade mounted root rake to grub as many as possible roots and debris left over from the trees removed.
This is done so the land can be leveled properly in preparation of construction or grass seeding or planting. In some cases the trees and debris maybe be burnt, some soft woods , such as pine and hardwoods such as Oak may hauled away for timber products to be used in various manners depending on the size or quality of the logs that are harvested.
There are many different methods and all have their pros and cons and will vary depending on location and requirements for the end of use of the property being cleared. When seeking a land clearing contractor one can never ask too many questions from several different sources.
