Land clearing using forestry mulching is one of the most economical and environmentally friendly ways to surgically clear your land.

Forestry mulching

Forestry mulching is a land clearing method that uses a single machine to cut, grind, and clear vegetative growth. The units we have uses a rotary drum equipped with steel planar “teeth” to remove and shred trees, brush and heavy vegetation. The mulch is simultaneously distributed over the cutting area, reducing erosion and vegetative regrowth while leaving a natural, forest-like environment.  Forestry mulching is used for land clearing, right of way clearing and maintenance. wildfire prevention, overgrown and heavy brush management, invasive species control and wildlife conservation and restoration.

Our Equipment

We have multiple machines so we can always provide the correct equipment for your project no matter the size.

For smaller projects we have the Caterpillar 299D2 (106hp) with an Dennis Cimaf 150d head 59″ working width.

The 299D2 is the perfect machine for smaller underbrush and mulching stumps.

For bigger projects we have the ASV120 (120hp) with a Dennis Cimaf 180d head 74″ working width.

The ASV120 is perfect for those projects where you would want to remove 6-8″ diameter trees.

For the largest projects we have the Barko 930B (320hp) with a Fecon Bh230HXD 100″ working width.

The barko is great for right of way projects, clear cut clean up projects and other large acreage projects.

Wildfire prevention and management

Mulching reduces the potential for wildfires by eliminating small leafy plants, fallen or rotten trees, and other fuel sources. If left untreated, these fuel loads increase potential for fire, increase the heat intensity, and serve as fire ladders that enable fire to elevate quickly to the tops of trees which is where a fire can spread most quickly. Mulching can also be used to create a coarse grind finish that can create a more ideal controlled burn.

Proactive mulching can reduce stress on trees caused by crowding, making them less susceptible to attack from invasive species. Mulching invasive species in place can control the spread of invasive plants, insects, and fungus. The mulching action tends to discharge the material downward and within a reasonably confined area, versus other methods such as rotary cutters that may laterally disperse pine beetles or other invasive species into neighboring healthy trees.

Forestry mulching has become popular among nonprofit riparian conservation organizations, government agencies, hunt clubs, and private land owners in attempts to maintain habitats for pheasants, doves, elk, deer and various other animals. Maintaining an animal habitat encompasses several different aspects: food, water, shelter, and space, and there are many products that can help reclaim and maintain wildlife habitats for these animals.

Forestry mulchers are often used for removing underbrush and invasive species, such as buckthorn and multiflora rose, in order to allow the rejuvenation of grasses and other food sources.

Forestry mulchers can be used to restore water source access that has been blocked due to tree and understory growth, allowing animals to access the water.

Mulching can remove invasive underbrush that prevents the growth of the grasses required by certain animals for shelter, breeding, escaping the summer heat, and protecting themselves from cold temperature.
