WHAT IS FORESTRY MULCHING?
Forestry mulching in Tennessee is an affordable, fast, and efficient process to remove unwanted vegetation from large areas of land. It’s useful in clearing lots for new construction, eliminating underbrush from forested areas, and taming overgrowth in open fields.
Special equipment is used to remove excessive vegetation by using an attachment known as “mulching head”. By utilizing this equipment, we can quickly clear land while you save as much as half the cost compared to more labor-intensive methods including conventional hand-cutting. Unlike dozing, forestry mulching won’t disturb the rich soil underneath, and will leave delicate tree roots intact. If you’re concerned about erosion, mulching addresses that problem, too, since the earth underneath is left undisturbed.
By using a forestry mulching machine, also known as a “forestry mulcher”, we get rid of the tedious steps involved in the land-clearing process, including site-prep, cutting, material hauling, and clean-up. Using a forestry mulcher eliminates the need for a bulldozer, shearing equipment, a wood chipper, and additional vehicles to take unwanted materials off site.
WHY CHOOSE FORESTRY MULCHING?
Traditional land-clearing methods tend to be harmful to the environment and often present an increased risk of erosion by pushing trees over, uprooting the stump, and substantially disturbing the soil. Mulching is an improved process as it leaves the soil structure intact and undisturbed.
The mulched material is safe to leave on the surface and will act as an erosion barrier while effectively returning vital nutrients back into the soil. After one year, the land may be used for crops or grass may be re-seeded.
Using great care to leave specified valuable trees and/or bushes, our team at Hargrove Sealcoating will clear out unwanted and overgrown vegetation. We can trim, log, and mulch the trees that are taken off your property, while maintaining the valuable and aesthetic ones you desire. Besides underbrush removal, we can also level ground for paving or mulching into new walkways.
Forestry Mulching is recommended for anyone placing large tracts of land on the market. It enhances the appeal of the property and, like renovating an old home, increases its value and desirability.
HOW MUCH LAND CAN YOU CLEAR PER DAY?
Typically, we plan to finish one acre each day. However, that applies to relatively flat land that’s easily accessible. Land with extremely dense vegetation may take more time. Expediting the process even further is that fact that the vegetation does not need to be removed. It is left to nourish the land.
You are free to pick and choose areas that you would like cleared to make forestry mulching an even more affordable option. For instance, you can have an acre fronting the property cleared, leave the sides of the land as-is, and then clear a an acre or two behind the dwelling to enhance the view or increase usable lawn space.
FORESTRY MULCHING IN TENNESSEE
Perhaps the most valuable benefit of forestry mulching in Tennessee is that it does not necessitate brush burning. This is especially important in surrounding suburbs like Spring Hill and Franklin, as local ordinances are becoming increasingly restrictive on personal fires. During the dry summer months, burn bans can push a land clearing project out by several weeks or more. Mulching can be done year-round and without the hassles associated with acquiring a burn permit.
