Brush Cutting/Mulching 

Brush cutting and mulching is the ideal alternative to slash and burn techniques that denude the ground of precious topsoil and root base. We grind unwanted vegetation right where it stands and transform it into a beneficial mulch that prevents erosion. No burning and minimal erosion reduces the impacts of air and water pollution.

Mulching requires no dangerous fires and minimizes compaction of the ground. Stumps are left in the ground to hold the earth and they are cut flush to grade to allow future maintenance cutting. As unwanted trees are mulched into chips, this mulch is broadcast directly back onto the ground. It acts as a stabilizer, preventing erosion, and acts as an organic filler that enhances the topsoil. This method of clearing prevents erosion.

After mulching, the ground is ready for seeding. Grass seeds can be spread directly on top of this mulch to enhance the soil stabilization characteristics of the mulch, improve moisture retention and speed the decomposition rate of the mulch by-product. Just bush hog when needed to keep it maintained!
