Different lots need different methods of lot clearing. If it is a massive project, it is always advisable to hire a company to assist you with your project. Is there a lot of debris? Will it be hard to move certain obstacles? There are a lot of things that factor into the difficulty of the job. It is always good to have an idea of what you need before starting the project.
Check if you need a permit
Different places have certain laws that protect vegetation or prevents complications about soil erosion. There are other complications that may impact land clearing, and therefore, you have to research if you need a permit before starting. Some contractors offer to handle the paperwork for you.
There are several clearing techniques that can be used. Each of them is usually specialized in certain conditions such as the size of the land you need to clear, the amount of debris that needs to be cleared, and other factors such as the shape of the landscape that needs clearing.
1. Cut and Grind:
For lots with small trees, cut and grind is one of the most recommended techniques. This involves clearing the brush and weeds. Then, fallen trees can be cut and their stumps need to be removed using machinery.
2. Push Over or Bulldozing:
A bulldozer will be used to push over a large growth of trees and other debris. This will keep the roots intact and therefore, removing the stumps one by one is no longer necessary. This technique is perfect for flat land that has a lot of huge debris. If you are dealing with a huge area of land, this is also one of the easiest and most effective techniques.
This method involves anchor chains and tractors. The anchor will be attached to huge debris such as fallen trees and the tractor will pull it away. This is perfect for landscapes with a cliff or other formations that will make it impossible to easily bulldoze the lot.
