Forestry Mulching

What Is Forestry Mulching?

Forestry Mulching is a fast and effective land clearing method that utilizes specialized equipment to cut and grind vegetation. This environmentally friendly process leaves the ground covered in a rich and diverse mulch that nourishes the soil. This ground cover mulch is not like the mulch you might find at your local garden store; instead, it contains organic materials like grass clippings, chipped wood, shredded bark and leaves, and sawdust and generally leaves behind a layer 1–10 inches thick.
The Ideal Choice For Mulching
Forestry mulching allows you to make the most of your land by controlling the growth of wooded areas. By strategically managing thick, dense forested spaces, healthy trees and plants take up the nutrients they need to thrive while smaller, less healthy specimens are cleared to eliminate competition for resources.

“We are very pleased with Ben at Backwoods Forestry Mulching! Not only did he come and give us a quote on the spot, he took the time to listen to exactly what we wanted. He offered great advice and feedback on our ideas as well as shared his expertise on the trees and bushes on our property. Ben requested a fair price and really helped us jumpstart outside projects on our new construction home. We will greatly benefit from his advice to create a fire break around our property. He worked fast and efficiently, even fitting us in his schedule much earlier than expected. We will definitely hire him in the future when we need his services again.”

“We had some very thick trees where the ground had not seen the sun in decades. Even after living, it did not clear these out. In one day, we had 2-3 acres clear and mulched. This would have taken us months to do by hand. It was fantastic and worth every penny! Now our critters can freeze without the threat of predators hiding in the dark forest. Thank you! C. Morgan, Heron, Mt.”

“Backwoods Forestry Mulching is awesome! Ben came to our property and gave us a thorough assessment and estimate, then mulched nearly 10 acres of our forested property in two days. He did it in a way that actually increased the health of our forest, aided our timber management plan and opened it up so we could actually enjoy it. My wife and I found Ben to be extremely up front, hard working and a true expert in his field. If anyone needs a mulching service, we highly recommend Backwoods Forestry Mulching!.”

Did You Know?

When you have your property mulched, it’s a good time to trim the lower branches off your trees. We can use our pole saw to remove the lower branches on your trees from the ground up to about 8–10 feet high. For residential neighborhoods, limbing the trees provides better clearance for vehicles or pedestrians. It also lets more sunshine reach the area surrounding trees, helping grass grow in thicker. For heavily wooded locations, tree-limbing reduces fire risk.
