4 Tips to Clear and Remove Brush
4 Tips to Clear and Remove Brush
Trees, branches, and leaves must be removed from your property at some point. Even though small amounts may be disposed of in containers for green waste, it isn't always possible to dispose of large quantities.
It is a good idea for you to make a game plan for clearing your yard if there is a lot of brush in it.
Survey your landscape
Knowing what you're dealing with is crucial when clearing land for building and landscaping. This requires you to take a look at your surroundings and determine what needs doing.
What are your plans for removing trees? If yes, are they big or small trees? Do they have many leaves and branches? How tall are they? How much tree debris will you have when the tree is gone?
Perhaps you are actually removing undergrowth and shrubs. Are you dealing with a lot of vines? The size of the material and the amount of trimmings will impact how to remove the brush. To remove large quantities of debris, it is better to rent a wheeled dumpster than wait for trash pickup. This can be a quick, efficient way of clearing brush and removing it from your property.
Plan your brush removal
It's important to plan your brush removal before you even start. Without a plan, you could end up with lots of debris in your yard that can cause fire hazards. The large piles of brush can provide shelter for rodents as well.
These are three options to get rid of brush
- You can rent a dumpster. The rented dumpster is a great way to clean up debris from brush removal. This is especially useful for large pieces such as tree limbs or trunks. However, you can also use a dumpster if your shrubbery cuttings, grasses, or vines are too big.
- Onsite Brush Grinding. If your site can accommodate a grinder, it can be a good idea to reduce the material's footprint while also making a product that is useful for the landscape. Mulch is created when the brush is ground into a fine powder. This mulch can be laid in walkways to keep it away from weeds, cover existing garden beds to retain moisture, and add around trees to protect its roots. Mulch makes a beautiful addition to the landscape. Mulch may be left on your land for your own use.
- If you don't want to keep the mulch created from your bush on-site it can be taken away and used to create compost. This ensures that organic material, such as brush, can be sustainably recycled and is kept out of landfills.
Brush clearing equipment
Before you clear brush from your landscaping, make sure that you use the appropriate equipment. Your equipment must be maintained and properly serviced. These items will provide protection for you when clearing the brush.
- Work gloves
- Sturdy boots
- Thick pants
- Long-sleeved shirt
- Protective goggles
- Protection of the ears
- Insect repellant
- Weed Wacker
- Chipper/Shredder - If you want to make your mulch onsite using dried leaves, twigs, and other materials
Brush removal tips
When clearing brush in a forest, it is a good idea to start with the larger trees and work your way down to the smaller items. This is done by first cutting down or trimming large trees. Next, you will move onto smaller trees and eventually shrubs or perennials.
If you decide to take down a tree completely, it is necessary that the stumps be removed as well. If the root system in the tree isn't too large, you can probably use a shovel and dig out stumps. A stump grinder works well for larger trees and those with more extensive roots.
To remove the last plants, you should get rid of shrubs. These items are usually much easier to take out, but they can still be time-consuming and physically difficult to do so. You have many options for removing these plants. It is also a good idea that your blades be sharpened to ensure clean cuts and easy work.
