Property and Land Management
Our services include tree and brush removal, underbrushing for wood lots, and invasive species control. We can maintain walking trails or clear fence lines.
Mulching clears overgrown vegetation and restores property without the inherent dangers of burning or the expense of hauling to rid property of refuse. It increases property value through soil enrichment, water conservation and erosion control and can restore habitat and pasture without destruction to grasses, topsoil and desirable plant species. Since mulchers cut saplings and brush off at ground level, there are no stumps to burn or pull out.
Burning piles of brush get extremely hot and leave a scar at the site of the pile and in the surrounding area. They become so hot in fact, that they burn several inches below topsoil level, sterilizing the ground and killing everything in it. Topsoil contains vital nutrients, living microbes, oxygen and nitrogen that plants need to survive. Seeds germinating just beneath the soil are also destroyed during a burn. Scars from burn piles can cause soil sterilization and damage that can last for up to three years. The flames, heat and smoke from brush piles damage not only the immediate area but can also destroy damage and weaken nearby trees that are still standing. Many areas prohibit burning altogether due to the inherent dangers it presents and the amount of damage it causes to environmental balance.
