Tree Removal for Construction Projects
When it comes to constructing a new building as a commercial establishment or a house, there are things that you may need to take care of first. You cannot just start the construction without clearing some things that may block or limit the work.
Land clearing will involve the removal of trees as well as a brush on a certain piece of land which is meant for construction purposes. Depending on the location, size, and purpose of the land, the excavation might need professional land clearing services and equipment.
Some properties, whether residential or commercial, typically undergo landscaping to improve their aesthetic appeal, so there will often be some trees present.
These will have to be regularly maintained to prevent them from becoming obstructive, harmful to passersby and residents alike, or diseased. This is especially true is densely populated, yet aboreal and suburban areas (such as Long Island). One component of tree care is tree lopping, a process of trimming different sections of a tree. This can be especially helpful if there are trees in the space meant to be cleared for site preparation, which does not have to be entirely removed and can benefit from some careful trimming.
Land Clearing Methods
Pushover – This technique will include the usage of significant development gear. The trees will be pushed over and dragged away the area with the roots still intact. After the trees are moved to the central location, they will be processed for sale or perhaps ground for use as a mulching material.
Cut And Grind – This method will begin with cutting down the trees in the area. Often, these trees are moved to a processing location; however, the stumps are left in the ground and can be ground into the mulching material. Apart from that, these stumps might be pulled out of the grown by using a construction machinery.
Know that burning was used before as a method of clearing land. However, it has been banned already all across the world because of fire hazards and environmental concerns. Beside the aforementioned techniques, there are other area clearing strategies being employed these days.
More Land Clearing Methods
Chainsaw – This works perfectly for small plots. With a chainsaw, large trees are certainly handled with ease. But then, the roots will remain and the stumps as well.
Backhoe – If hiring an excavating firm is too expensive for you, consider renting a backhoe. Ensure that it will have a front end loader with a rake and fork. The rake will be used for clearing small objects, the fork for transport, and the loader for digging. You must be careful though with the rake so that you won’t destroy the soil. If you do not know how to use a backhoe, you have to rent an operator also.
Mulching – This is the best alternative to traditional land clearing techniques. This is considered a much easier, faster, and cheaper method. It will not create huge piles of refuse. Most importantly, it does not use chemicals, cause mischief to topsoil and utilize blazing. The new plans of mulching machinery today put a little pressure on the ground. Rather than disturbing the soil, it enriches it by the use of mulch that comes from chipping up stumps and trees.
