As a landowner, for years I struggled with clearing overgrowth from otherwise usable areas of land. Toiling by hand, with weedeaters, chainsaws, brushhogs, chains, tractors, etc, I was unable to make significant progress and often times would end up giving up. I tried bulldozers and excavators, but the toll they took on the land was just too great. They often couldn’t get into the areas I wanted cleared, and even more often inadvertently destroyed the habitat I wanted to keep. My search led me to forestry mulching, and I just couldn’t believe how quickly, efficiently, and accurately the process could clear what I wanted cleared, and leave what I wanted left behind. I was hooked!
Today I own and operate a high powered, state of the art forestry mulching combination. Consisting of a Kubota SVL95-2 Compact Track Loader, and a Bradco MM72 Mulching head, I can clear effectively and efficiently. The CTL combo can clear several acres in a day of low density small material, and up to 8” trees easily. Beyond that, I have the capability to cut, de-limb, and haul out the trunks, and mulch the limbs and stumps of much larger material. I’m still a landowner who understands the needs of fellow property owners and developers. Whether it’s reclaiming pastures, beautifying your retreat, creating ideal hunting spaces, prepping for fences, clearing for development, or just protecting your investment, I will work diligently to provide you with the highest quality and efficiency you can invest in.

Advantages to Forestry Mulching Over Clearing by Hand:
If you’ve ever cleared sites manually, you know the labor involved is extreme. It usually requires multiple people to rip, drag, and cut, and burn. It’s dangerous work involving chain saws, tractors, chains, etcIf you’ve ever had a bulldozer do your clearing, you know how the land is left ravaged, stump holes sink over time, roots and small trees are left behind, burn piles and stumps remain for many years, and the property requires further work after the bulldozer has moved the large material. A huge amount of equipment is required including semi-trucks to haul in, dump trucks to haul out, roads built to haul on, and fuel trucks on site. And, it’s highly likely that trees you want to keep will be damaged beyond salvation after heavy equipment compacts and tears the surrounding soil.However there are a huge number of other advantages to forestry mulching you may not have considered:
- Rubber tracks and low ground pressure won’t destroy the ground being operated on
- Exceptional speed of up to ¼ mi an hour at 6’ wide
- Ability to leave specific species or desired trees unharmed
- Wide tracks won’t affect the roots of trees being preserved
- Remaining product will mulch the soil and help prevent erosion
- Nutrients are returned directly to the soil
- No piles or stumps to burn or have hauled off
- No requirement for site access/haul roads
- Immediate ability to mow over the remnant mulch
- Extreme maneuverability is perfect for tight woods
- Can mulch in 8” tree in under 1 minute
- Grasses can be seeded directly into mulch and quickly envelope the landscape
Forestry Mulching is a great alternative for land clearing. It takes a complete different approach to how it should be done. With the typical land clearing of the past, everything was either cut by hand and hauled off to rot or be burned. Or they may have also used bulldozers to plow everything over ripping up the soil causing damage to the vegetation Call and schedule today!Sundance Forestry LLC918-777-3505
