What are the Benefits of Forestry Mulching Services?

Forestry mulching uses a single machine to cut, grind and clear vegetation. This leaves behind a layer of mulch, with its own eco-benefits, cementing this as an eco-friendly method of clearing.

This type of mulching has a number of benefits that make it a top choice for council and commercial property clearing.

These benefits are what are responsible for making this service more popular than the traditional ‘slash and burn’ methods. So what are the benefits?

Low Impact
Eco-Friendly Method
Avoid Erosion
Long-Term Soil Improvement

Forestry mulching offers ecological and sustainable ways to manage non-native vegetation on a large scale, making it an environmentally conscious choice.

Using this method, less equipment and site visits are typically required in order to complete the clearing. This means that the surrounding environment experiences less disruption during the process.

Whether you need to clear council land or a commercial project site, this method of clearing and preparing a site leaves less of an environmental impact and allows for greater mindfulness.

Traditional clearing methods tend to be applied with less discretion, meaning it’s easy for areas outside of the intended clearing area to be caught up in the process. This can obviously affect the landscape in many ways, sometimes adversely.

Items like native vegetation that get caught up in the process are often cleared simply because there is no precise control in the process.

Instead, when using a forestry mulcher, lnd can be cleared much more carefully and with a greater precision. This, combined with the ability to mulch and leave those nutrients behind for the land makes this a much more eco-friendly process.

Erosion can become a problem when land is cleared without the proper clearing methods. If soil is left exposed to the elements it can be easily washed or blown away, which means your property can be left with further erosion issues.

Issues include:

  • Poor drainage
  • Insufficient soil
  • Difficulty growing new vegetation

Forestry mulching allows you to control and combat the risk of erosion. This specialty equipment allows our expert forestry mulching contractors to clear the land while also leaving behind a layer of mulch to keep the soil in place. This can also help protect and fertilize any 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.

Reach out if you’d like to keep your soil healthy even after clearing works on your land.
