|A forest tree mulcher is one of the new components to the “going green” movement. A forest tree mulcher is designed to clear away trees, stumps, and brush by grinding organic material into mulch. Unlike traditional methods of land clearing, such as bulldozing and burning, a forest tree mulcher is able to preserve the land’s top soil and grass, thereby clearing trees with minimal damage to the environment.
The forest tree mulcher has been lauded for its eco-friendly methods that guard against ground erosion, preserve wanted tree and grass roots, and quickly enhance land without demolishing the surrounding property. In addition, the mulch generated from a forest tree mulcher both supplies nutrients to the soil and enhances its moisture retention.
The forest tree mulcher’s ability to preserve land while still removing unwanted trees and brush makes it the most environmentally-friendly land clearing method in the industry.
Bulldozing and burning are traditional land clearing methods, used by large companies and property owners alike. These outdated land clearing techniques are time consuming, potentially hazardous, and eco-destructive.
The Drawbacks of Burning:
Burning as opposed to a forest tree mulcher, in particular necessitates a permit and runs risks of unmanageable forest fires that not only destroy the environment but also pose serious health and financial risks for both homeowners and the community. At best, a contained fire will clear away brush but also heat up the land several inches below the top soil, sterilizing and stripping the land of the nutrients, microbes, nitrogen, and oxygen that plants need to survive. Additionally, the heat and smoke from the fire can seriously damage the surrounding trees, thereby offsetting the environmental balance. The severe damage inflicted by burning can take over three years to repair.
The Drawbacks of Bulldozing:
Bulldozing does not pose as many risks as burning but does have similar detrimental effects on the environment. While bulldozing does effectively remove trees as effectively as a forest tree mulcher, it also demolishes the topsoil and plant and grass roots therefore, devastating the areas eco-system. Unlike a forest tree mulcher, a bulldozer will create deep holes that will need to be filled, which is not cost effective and can take up valuable time.
The Benefits of Tree Mulchers:
A forest tree mulcher stands in stark contrast to bulldozing and burning. Effective at removing trees while maintaining the environment, a forest tree mulcher is now for many companies’ the number one choice for both environmentally friendly and highly efficient land clearing. A forest tree mulcher preserve the soil’s nutrients and roots, leaving little damage to the areas overall eco-system. This saves property owners and companies from putting time and money into the cleanup and rebuilding of land that is part of traditional land clearing methods. In addition, the forest tree mulcher cuts trees even to the ground. This allows the roots to compost naturally and the mulch created from the trees provides nutrients to the soil, thus further enhancing the environment. Unlike more traditional methods, the forest tree mulcher creates an area more akin to a park than a demolition site.
