Do you need to clear land, fast? If methods such as grubbing, dozing or burning seem a little too invasive – then you should consider scrub mulching.
Scrub mulching is the method of clearing unwanted growth on many types of terrains and environments. It saves an enormous amount of both time and money.
Usually applied in heavy-duty forestry, scrub mulching is ideal for land restoration as it leaves the root system intact, helping prevent soil erosion, and also leaves a layer of woody mulch in its path which will eventually rot and return nutrients to the ground. Not only that, but mulching also helps keep the soil cooler during hot days and warmer during the cooler winter days.
In this blog, we explore the range of BERTI scrub mulchers that are ideal for a wide range of land clearing purposes, depending on the diameter of the scrub and trees you are clearing.
