Benefits of Forestry Mulching Services
Forestry mulching is an eco-friendly land clearing method. It uses a single machine to cut, grind and clear vegetation, leaving behind a layer of mulch which has benefits of its own.
There are a number of benefits of forestry mulching which make it a top choice for property clearing these days.
These benefits are responsible for making this service a more popular choice than traditional ‘slash and burn’ methods of clearing a site which can harm the environment.
As a more environmentally conscious alternative to ‘slash and burn’ clearing, forestry mulching offers ecological and sustainable ways to manage non-native vegetation at a large scale.
No matter the size of your property, this method of clearing and preparing a site leaves a lower environmental impact and allows for a greater degree of selectivity.
Considering also that less equipment and less site visits are needed to complete such a task, the surrounding environment experiences a smaller degree of disruption when the clearing process takes place.

Traditional clearing methods, such as ‘slash and burn’, are usually applied with much less selectivity, which affect a landscape in various ways.
Things that may not need to be cleared, like native vegetation, are often cleared along with everything else in the area when such methods are applied simply due to the loss of finite control.
When a forestry mulcher is used instead, land can be cleared far more carefully and selectively. Specific areas, or even small areas and small plants can be chosen to be cleared or not. The selected areas are mulched on site and help to preserve parts of the landscape.
Erosion control becomes a problem when using traditional clearing methods. If bare soil is left exposed to the elements, and can easily be washed or blown away, your land can be left with further issues caused by erosion.
These can include:
- Poor drainage
- Insufficient soil
- Difficulty growing new vegetation
When you use forestry mulching, you can combat the risk of erosion. Specialized equipment allows our expert forestry mulching contractors to clear your land while also leaving behind a top layer of mulch in the cleared areas, keeping your soil in place.
In addition to protecting your land from soil erosion, we can also help you protect and fertilise the plants that remain.

In addition to the immediate and short-term benefits of forestry mulching, there are long-term benefits that can improve your soil as well.
The mulch that’s left behind offers essential nutrients which can help improve soil. Mulch is a widely useful substance for many applications, from gardening to agriculture. Nutrients found in mulch not only nourish the soil on your land, but they also enrich it to keep the land healthy.
Trees and plants also enjoy the benefits of mulch, allowing them to grow more efficiently, remain healthy and prevent problems such as mould.
