If you have attempted the laborious task of “hand-clearing” you already know how time consuming, inefficient and expensive it truly is.  You may have experienced, first hand, the sense of defeat that accompanies the realization that your labor has merely created further hassle in the form of stumps and brush piles.  With forestry mulching technology the need for costly and tedious handwork is eliminated.  Undesirable vegetation is mulched on the spot, into a rich and attractive layer, turning unusable woodlots into gorgeous glades and shady gathering areas.

Underbrushing is Fast and Cost Effective

Underbrushing is one of our most popular services.  Clients are often amazed to find that their lots or wooded acreage can be thoroughly transformed in as little as a day, at prices that shame other methods.  Real estate agents, developers and homeowners associations have found that our underbrushing services were literally the difference between properties remaining on the market or selling. Visualization is a key component for site planning.   It also contributes to successful real estate transactions.  Many of our clients have reported they recovered more than twice their mulching cost at re-sale due to their property’s vastly improved appearance and access.

Another important benefit of forestry mulching is the reduction of “ladder fuels”, woody and vegetative material that allows wildfires to spread unabated through forested and residential areas.  V&V underbrushes residential areas for the US Forest Service as part of their Firewise program.  Furthermore, underbrushing with forestry mulching equipment can be done with minimal disturbance to delicate topsoils, “keeper” trees and desirable vegetation.  The mulch helps minimize ground pressure disturbances and negative impacts upon sapling and roots.  On countless occasions we’ve seen “conventional” underbrushing efforts fatally damage the feeder roots and/or trunks of remaining trees, not to mention the topsoil.  We have thousands of hours of mulching under our belts, and skilled operators that are knowledgeable about the delicate ecology and diverse flora of our region.   We want to thoroughly understand your goals so we can tailor the underbrushing strategy that best serves you.  Give us a call.  Most initial consultations are free.
