Forestry mulching is an innovative way to clear wooded land using a single machine with a rotating drum that first cuts the vegetation, then grinds it into small chips (hence the name "mulch"). When using the forestry mulch technique to clear land, all of the mulch chips created by the machine are left on the ground, which creates a natural erosion barrier and returns nutrients back to the soil through decomposition. Forestry mulching is also one of the best methods to clear wooded land without disturbing the vegetation/trees you'd like to keep.
Forestry mulching is best utilized when a majority of the property to be cleared is covered in medium to small trees and other vegetation. Our forestry mulching machines can typically handle trees up to 6 inches in diameter. For many wooded properties we see in Georgia, forestry mulching is a great option and can handle the entire job.
