The Environmentally Friendly Way to Clear the Land

Forestry mulching is a land clearing process of cutting and grinding unwanted vegetation flush to the ground leaving a layer of nutrient-rich mulch. This eco-friendly and sustainable process is a good cost-effective way to get rid of unwanted trees, shrubs, vines, and other unwanted brush on your land.

The mulch created by this process is left in place as a natural fertilizing layer which helps promote healthy growth for the vegetation left behind. The thick layer of mulch helps stop unwanted weeds and it regulates the soil temperature, absorbs moisture, and helps prevent evaporation and erosion. Over time the mulch naturally decomposes to provide further nutrients to the soil and allows the land to once again thrive.


Underbrush refers to small trees, shrubs, ferns, vines, and other low plants that are under trees in wooded areas. Although it may seem harmless to your land, it can quickly become a nuisance if left unattended. 

  • Invasive brush species can create an entangled dense mass that can take nutrients from native trees and plants. Invasive plants like ligustrum, poison ivy, Chinese tallow, and privit are the most common in Texas.
  • Overgrown underbrush can create a fire hazard, particularly concerning during dry seasons.
  • Underbrush can hinder the usability of your land. Untamed foliage can make it difficult to walk through, explore, or use the area for recreational or business purposes.

It can be, but generally, no. Grubbing removes trees, stumps, and their roots below the soil’s surface, but forestry mulching clears the land at ground level. Grubbing is essential when preparing land for construction because, over time, the material breaks down and will leave open gaps that will weaken a building’s foundation.



Forestry mulching services can be used to prepare an early commercial property for construction, as it will greatly improve the property’s aesthetic appeal. Properly cleared land allows prospective buyers to fully appreciate the property’s true potential. Just as a well-maintained home tends to sell more quickly, well-cleared land sets the stage for a successful sale.

Whether the land will be used for office parks or shopping centers, clearing and mulching the area will provide builders and contractors with the perfect blank canvas to begin construction.

Efficient and Natural Way to Clear Land

Forestry mulching is a fast, efficient, and environmentally friendly way to clear land. Unlike traditional land-clearing methods, such as burning, bulldozing, or using chemicals, forestry mulching has little to no impact on the surrounding ecosystem. The process involves our industry-standard forestry mulchers, which use sharp rotary teeth to grind the trees, shrubs, bushes, and other vegetation into small pieces. With pounds of freshly ground mulch, we then spread it back over the site to create a natural protectant layer and fertilizer for the soil.

Reduces Insect and Tick Population

Forestry mulching has been found to be an effective method of reducing pests, particularly ticks. The entangled bushes, and dry shrubbery that is all too common in the Texas climate act as a playground for pests, invasive insects, ticks, etc. By removing and reimplementing this debris, forestry mulching can help reduce this population without the use of harmful chemicals, or other damaging methods on and around your property.


Compared to other land-clearing methods, forestry mulching is cost-effective because it eliminates the need for additional equipment, such as bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks, which are expensive to rent, operate and maintain. Additionally, it eliminates the need for hauling and disposal. The mulch also helps to retain soil moisture and serves as a barrier against weeds, reducing the need for frequent watering and expensive landscaping efforts.

Wildlife Habitats Conservation

Preserving Texas wetlands and wildlife habitats is crucial, and forestry mulching is an indispensable approach to achieving this goal. With the removal of invasive underbrush and species, forestry mulching revitalizes grasses, which serve as a vital food source for animals like deer, doves, and other wildlife. Furthermore, this method creates more breeding space and shelter for wild animals during severe weather conditions.

Improved Soil Quality

Forestry mulching is a sustainable land-clearing method because it doesn’t disrupt the land cleared, and the mulch created from the process acts as a nutrient-rich soil amendment that supports the growth of new vegetation. The mulch helps to improve the soil structure and quality, promotes soil moisture retention, and encourages the growth of beneficial microorganisms that help to maintain soil health over time.

Hinders Weed Growth

Forestry mulching is used by landowners, ranchers, and farmers to control unwanted, fast-growing weeds that can compete for soil nutrients with your desired plants. Because forestry mulch is dense and completely covers the soil’s surface, it effectively blocks sunlight from reaching weeds and other unwanted plants, leading to their demise. Additionally, the decomposing mulch generates its own heat, which can further deter the growth of weeds.

Wildfire Prevention and Management

Mulching is a proactive way to reduce the risk of wildfires. By removing small leafy plants, fallen or rotten trees, and other sources of fuel, mulching decreases the potential for fire and limits the intensity of heat. Additionally, this technique eliminates fire ladders that allow flames to spread quickly to treetops, where fires can spread the most rapidly.

Erosion Control

With the ever-changing Texas weather, erosion can be a significant issue for landowners. Forestry mulching can prevent soil erosion on your property in 2 major ways.

  • During the mulching process, we are sure to leave the roots of the plants intact. This helps to hold the soil together and prevent erosion.
  • Additionally, the mulch laid upon the area creates a protectant layer, reducing erosion by preventing soil runoff and water evaporation caused by frequent rainfall. And since the mulch decomposes slowly, it maintains its protective benefits for years to come.

Improved Aesthetics

Forestry mulching is an excellent way to enhance the aesthetical look of your property. Old dense forestry can block the view of a property or generally make an acreage feel cluttered. Remove that shrubbery and completely revamp your property in an eco-friendly way. Additionally, the mulch created from the process looks and feels natural, so you’ll be able to maintain the natural beauty of your land while ensuring easy maintenance.
