Top Land Clearing related questions

The time it takes to clear land varies depending on its size and condition. An acre of land usually takes approximately two and a half hours to clear. It can take longer if it’s heavily forested or if it has obstructions like buildings and homes. It also depends on your land clearing method of choice. Burning and dozing are usually the fastest.

Not really! When you book a Tasker, they usually come with their own tools and equipment for them to be able to do the job efficiently. These range from smaller tools like chainsaws, stump grinders, axes, and shovels, to heavy equipment like bulldozers, backhoes, and dump trucks. You may not be able to find these machines lying around your house, but not to worry because your Tasker can handle it all.

Clearing small land with little vegetation can be done yourself. Otherwise, it would be best to book a professional land clearing and tree service to help you out. Clearing tall, large, and thick trees needs big machinery, and operating them requires years of experience. Besides, when done incorrectly, most land clearing methods can incur more costs. Leave this task to experts to ensure it’s done right the first time around!

It depends on where you live and what kind of land you have. Each US state has a different set of laws and regulations. Generally, you can clear your land of small and dead trees without permission, but you may need prior consent if you’re clearing acres of land with larger trees. Be sure to consult your local council first before booking a land clearing service.

What do land clearing services include?

Land clearing services near you involve removing trees, plants, and shrubs from an area using heavy equipment like chainsaws, bulldozers, excavators, or other heavy machinery. Whether you want to have your garden cleared to enhance its look or prepare for a major construction project, land grading and clearing can help you achieve the final result you want. When you book a land clearing service, expect your contractor to use one or more of the following methods:

Cut and grind

If your property only has a few trees to remove, the cut and grind land clearing method can be suitable for you. Depending on your space and available equipment, your Tasker can first prepare the land by cutting weeds and brush using tools like root plow or brush mower. Then, using larger machinery, your Tasker can take down the trees and put them in a pile. Doing this site preparation technique makes it easier to move the debris later. As for stump removal, your Tasker can get it done by using backhoes or trucks. Then, your piece of land can now be mulched! Your Tasker can use forestry mowers to take everything down, turn them into pieces, and spread them across the land.  

Grubbing and dozing

Want to cover a lot of land area at a fast pace? Choose grubbing and dozing! This process starts with manually removing larger roots. Your Tasker can dig around each root, cut off any long ones, and ensure that no other plant life nearby will be damaged. This is followed by using a bulldozer or chain to clear out unwanted vegetation. Before doing this, let your Tasker know if you have desirable plants so they can steer clear of them and ensure they are not accidentally removed. Keep in mind, though, that this quick process can leave behind large holes, creating a messy and rough finish. 

Pile and burn

Why not the pile and burn method for those looking for the cheapest way to clear land? It’s also a relatively quick process! Your Tasker can first clear out your land using a skid steer, tractor, or any equipment needed for your land. At the same time, they can move everything into piles. After everything’s been piled up, your Tasker now conducts a controlled burn. This is an effective and fast way to clear out your land, but keep in mind that if you choose this, you will not be able to selectively eliminate trees, brush, or other vegetation. 

This method can be perfect if your land has invasive vegetation that has spread uncontrollably.  After having your land cleared, they may be small pieces of trash left behind. You can get someone to collect your garden waste, so you don’t have to pick them up yourself!
