There are many different ways to go about land clearing when you have a tract of land that you want to develop. The three most commonly used are hand clearing, burning, and using heavy equipment to clear the land of trees and other debris. There are advantages to each, as well as some drawbacks.
- Hand clearing– Hand clearing is an effective option for land clearing. While it is typically used for smaller projects, it’s hard work, so you might want to consider another method for a large project. The advantage is you can be selective and deliberate about the trees you remove and those that you allow to remain.
- Burning– You can’t ask for a quicker land clearing method, but it does come with some problems. First, you can’t save anything. There is also the risk that the fire will get out of control. Another issue is that burning can damage the ground so that very little can grow in the near future, and when it does, it may not be a species you want to take root and rapidly spread.
- Land clearing professional– A land clearing professional will use the appropriate heavy equipment for the job at hand and also take the additional steps you need to prepare your site, such as grading. There are several methods that can be utilized, including using bulldozers, excavators, and mulchers.
