FORESTRY MOWING

Woodlands, savannas, and prairies are being infested with unwanted invasive woody species. Forestry mowing is a cost effective way of controlling and removing these species. Our team will take an environmentally friendly approach to clearing your land by mechanically "mowing" brush and trees 4 - 8 inches in diameter. This process is more advantageous over traditional bulldozing because it creates nutrient rich mulch and eliminates the need to burn or haul off large piles of brush. This method also helps prevent erosion and runoff pollution by not disturbing the root structure of larger trees. There is no need for hand cutting, stacking, and disposing of material anymore. A forestry mower can do all of this is one step. We also offer follow up herbicide application.


The following are examples of projects where utilizing forestry mowing methods are beneficial:
