Benefits of Forestry Mulching


Forestry mulching is a land clearing method that uses a single machine to cut, grind, and clear vegetation. A forestry mulching machine uses a rotary drum equipped with steel chipper teeth or blades to shred vegetation into a fine mulch.

  • Zero Waste - Mulching will transform the fallen logs, undergrowth, and decomposing wood into a restorative layer for the topsoil.
  • Replenish Nutrients - By mulching the undergrowth and selectively removing certain trees, the remaining trees will have more nutrients and water available to them allowing them to thrive. The leftover mulched material left on the ground will also return nutrients back into the soil through decomposition.
  • Reduce Number of Ticks - When you remove the abundance of overgrowth you limit where the ticks are hiding. This is extremely beneficial on hiking paths where underbrush is an inviting home for ticks to reside.
  • Less Carbon Footprint - Traditionally, land clearing includes cutting, hauling, felling, and site cleanup. With Forestry Mulching the underbrush and selective trees are taken down and processed where they stand leaving no need for the other equipment.
  • Erosion Control - Traditional land clearing methods often present an increased risk of erosion by pushing over trees, uprooting the stump and roots, and substantially disturbing soils. In contrast, mulching the vegetation leaves the soil structure intact.
