Is overgrown brush making it hard to get the most from your outdoor space? Forestry mulching services can help you take control of your property. Whether your next project is removing a stump or installing a fence, clearing land doesn’t have to become a headache. The process of forestry mulching is relatively quick and easy for you, and it’s also an environmentally responsible option.

Forestry Mulching Is an Efficient & Eco-Friendly Way to Clear Land

The conventional processes for clearing land all come with their own problems. Using large equipment runs a higher risk of damaging the environment. Clearing land by hand is time-consuming and tedious.

Forestry mulching solves those problems. Mulching invasive plants and vegetation directly at the site eliminates many steps from traditional land-clearing processes. Instead of preparing the site, felling trees, hauling them away, burning them, and clearing the area, you can simply have the overgrowth turned into mulch on the spot!

Long-Term Benefits of Forestry Mulching

Immediately after a forest mulching project, your property will look much cleaner. The improved appearance can increase your property value instantly, and there are several long-term benefits as well:

  • Leaving root systems intact prevents erosion
  • Removing invasive species prevents them from spreading
  • Creating mulch builds topsoil to offer more nutrients to your remaining plants
  • Clearing overgrowth makes the land more usable

People choose forestry mulching as a form of brush removal for a number of reasons. Your specific benefits will depend on your property and your reason for the project.

Who Benefits From Forestry Mulching?

Brush removal and forestry mulching services can benefit all property types, from your backyard garden to commercial farmland. There are also developmental and environmental benefits in the following areas:

  • Land Clearing – Mulching has become a leading option for clearing commercial and public land. Examples include right-of-way clearing for utility projects, construction site development, and the creation of natural recreational areas.
  • Habitat Conservation – Forestry mulching is an environmentally friendly way to protect local habitats. This makes it ideal for natural areas, hunting grounds, and conservation organizations.
  • Invasive Species Removal – Invasive plants and insects can damage the rest of your ecosystem by soaking up groundwater and damaging other plants. Controlling them helps protect the rest of the ecosystem.
  • Wildlife Control – Controlling the ecosystem can benefit local wildlife by providing better food, water, or shelter access.
  • Wildfire Prevention – Proactive brush removal and mulching can eliminate wildfire risks and create fire breaks for active fires.

Land Clearing and Forestry Mulching Services

Regardless of circumstance, the goal of forestry mulching and brush removal services is almost always to protect or create useful land. In some cases, it comes down to making private property more attractive or reclaiming land on a farm. Other commercial clients seek forestry mulching services to clean up after logging, create trails, or clean up around water features.

It can even be as simple as thinning trees or eliminating an invasive species before it can spread. Forestry mulching is a leading choice for brush cleaning because it leaves the area in a better condition than many other land-clearing machines.


Mulch can be defined as any substance that is used to cover soil by spreading or laying it on top. It’s used to avoid frost heaving in winter, maintain the soil and plant roots’ temperature, reduce or impede weed growth, and improve the garden bed and landscape’s aesthetics. This protective layer(mulch) of organic material can decompose and return to the soil, enhancing its richness and fertility. The biodegradable top layer acts as a natural protective layer over the soil that stabilizes the surface prevents erosion, and promotes the growth of native plants.

Forestry mulching is a procedure that occurs following land clearance operations. It’s a technique that uses a single machine to systematically cut down trees, shrubs, and vines to remove undesirable plants and leave behind a beautiful and functional layer of mulch.

Forestry mulching transforms the remaining vegetation in an area, such as heavy branches, short grass, and brush, into a natural, eco-friendly top layer of ground cover. Unlike conventional land-clearing methods, mulching does not involve uprooting trees or disrupting the soil’s structure, thus preventing soil erosion.

A forestry mulching machine, also known as a forestry mulcher, forest masticator, or brushcutter, shreds vegetation using a rotary drum with steel chipping tools (also known as “teeth”) or blades.

The mulch is distributed uniformly over the cutting area to slow initial re-growth, minimize erosion, and restore the topsoil base. Unlike other clearing techniques, forestry mulching doesn’t produce brush piles, burns, or scarred ground. Since forestry mulching safeguards the delicate “feeder” roots and essential topsoil layer, damage to “keeper” trees is significantly reduced.

Commercial Mulchers: These are the most popular mulchers used on building sites for cleaning ground before new development. Their size is a result of the difficulty of their work. These mulchers have a lot of horsepower, can withstand rough operation, and are made of sturdy, heavy-duty steel.

Dual-Purpose: These mulchers can perform two duties simultaneously and are popular since they have a built-in chipper or shredder feature. The vegetation is trimmed with a dual-purpose mulcher before being put into the shredder. It is broken down into smaller bits inside the shredder, creating nutrient-rich mulch for the soil.

Freestanding Mulchers: They are plastic, transportable mulching machines. They have a funnel-shaped entrance through which leaves and other garbage are fed, where the mulcher swiftly shreds them into tiny pieces.

Most professional forestry mulching services typically charge by the acre or sq foot, although others charge by the hour. Several factors affect forestry mulching prices, which include:

Site Preparation: The cost can vary widely depending on whether the land needs to be graded or leveled to lay a foundation for mulching or if the only work required is debris removal.

Land Condition: The final bill is also determined by the kind of land you own. You could have to pay more if the experts have to move their mulching equipment across a hilly or uneven surface.

Erosion: Any construction on land that is eroding is unsafe. The expert will advise implementing erosion control measures, so you could pay an extra fee to fix the problem.

Tree Removal: Some properties necessitate a minor land clearing, which can involve cutting down a single or a few trees. In that case, the overall cost will be determined by the height and size of the trees.
