Forestry Mulching

What is Forestry Mulching?

Forestry mulching is a land clearing method that uses a single machine to cut, grind, and clear vegetation.

A forestry mulching machine, also referred to as a forestry mulcher, masticator, or brush cutter, uses a rotary drum equipped with steel chipper tools (“teeth”) to shred vegetation.

Heavy duty forestry mulchers can clear up to five acres of vegetation a day depending on terrain, density, and type of material. Forestry mulchers are often used for land clearing, right of way, pipeline/power line and wildfire prevention and management, vegetation management,  invasive species control, and wildlife restoration.

  • Layer of mulch suppresses weeds and stabilizes soil from erosion
