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.
BENEFITS OF FORESTRY MULCHING INCLUDE:
Layer of mulch suppresses weeds and stabilizes soil from erosion
Less expensive than traditional land clearing and doesn’t damage the roots of keeper trees
