The Benefits of Using A Professional Land Clearing Service

Land clearing is an essential task for property development in South East Queensland. However, it is not a job for amateurs, and it’s important to hire a professional arborist for this task. In this article, we’ll discuss what land clearing entails, the tree services that may be involved, the reasons for land clearing and the benefits of using a professional arborist for the job. We’ll also discuss the environmental considerations that should be taken into account during the land clearing process.

What is Land Clearing?

Land clearing is the process of removing trees, stumps, and other vegetation from a property in preparation for construction or landscaping. It can be carried out on large parcels of land for commercial or agricultural use or simply extending the usable land in your backyard. It can also be done for fire prevention or to create a more aesthetically pleasing landscape. Whatever the reason for land clearing, it’s essential to use a professional arborist to ensure that the job is done safely and effectively.

Tree Services Involved in Land Clearing

Depending on the different types of plants and trees present at the site to be cleared, we may need to carry out several tree and landscaping services to get the job done right. Long grass and shrubs are first cut away to provide better access to the site. Once we have proper access to the site we can formulate a plan in order to safely carry out tree removal. Any trees running along the area marked for clearing will also be pruned back.

Stump grinding will be next up and needs to be performed correctly to ensure no roots remain. The mulch produced by tree removal and stump grinding can be used for landscaping or taken away. We will also survey the land, noting any extruding objects such as rocks and other refuse that need to be dug up and disposed of. Once our team is finished, your site will be ready for development or landscaping which is a service we also provide.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional

Hiring a professional arborist for land clearing offers several benefits. Arborists are trained and experienced in tree services and have the necessary equipment and techniques to perform the job safely and effectively. We can also provide advice on the best ways to care for trees and other vegetation, including proper tree pruning, tree removal, and stump grinding techniques. Using a professional arborist can also help to reduce the risk of property damage or injury during the land clearing process.

Environmental Considerations

When carrying out land clearing, it’s important to consider the environmental impact of the work. This includes protecting wildlife habitats and minimising soil erosion. A professional arborist can assess the site and carry out work in such a manner that wildlife is not harmed and can be relocated. They can also use environmentally friendly techniques such as mulching to reuse the debris from the land clearing process.

Our team has decades of experience and an in-depth knowledge of the local flora and fauna found in our region. We always operate with a deep respect for the land and will perform a comprehensive inspection of any site to ensure our actions will not result in any harm to wildlife. We have even been known to wrangle a few snakes here and there in order to give them a new home to slither about in while we carry out our work!

Safety Considerations

Safety is an essential consideration when carrying out land clearing. There are several safety risks associated with land clearing, including falling trees, flying debris, and accidents involving equipment. A professional arborist can minimise these risks by using proper equipment and techniques and by following strict safety guidelines. We can also provide advice on how to maintain a safe and healthy environment after the land clearing process has been completed.
