Forestry mulching is the process of brush removal, land, farm and jobsite clearing done by cutting, chopping or grinding vegetation into particles that are usually left on-site to clear the land for the purposes intended by the owners thru the use of forestry mulching machine or masticator.  The primary purpose of forestry mulchers was to lessen the fire fuels and, also, as an alternative to chemical treatment competitive species, for aesthetic treatments, right-of-way maintenance, and range rehabilitation.

Nowadays, forestry mulcher machines are also used for tree thinning, vegetation management, brush removal, brush pile grinding, and land mulching.

Forestry Mulching Advantages

Why would a landowner prefer forestry mulching over the traditional way of clearing land, farm and job site? Well below are the reasons why forestry mulching is better, they are:

  • Forestry mulching minimizes the disturbance of topsoil which prevents erosion
  • Forestry mulching machines can navigate steep slopes and narrow areas
  • The particles that were left on site as mulch serves as ready-made road or filed ready to be driven on or seeded
  • The trail of grounded vegetation left behind by the forestry mulcher looks better than the traditional method
  • Being smaller in size, forestry mulcher gains entry to hard to reach areas in the forest
  • Forest mulchers can operate during bad weather and on soft grounds, for this reason, forestry mulching contractor seldom have to stop its operation
  • The brush removal, brush pile grinding, land mulching, and other mulching services are more environmentally friendly

Forestry Mulching Disadvantages

Of course, this is that other side of the coin. Below are some of the disadvantages of using forestry mulching machines, they are:

  • Depending on the size of the forestry mulcher, the size of the trees that it can fell is limited. Keep in mind that the machine is primarily used for breaking down the trees to mulch. It is not for cutting it down.
  • It cannot break down stones and rocks. The sparks caused by metal hitting rocks may become a fire hazard.
  • There are areas that may require different types of mulching machines such as excavator mulchers, and skid steer tractors equipped with mulching attachments.
