What is Forestry Mulching?

Forestry mulching is a land-clearing method using a single machine to selectively cut trees, brush, and vines to clear unwanted vegetation, leaving behind a fine layer of mulch, which is much more appealing to look at than stumps sitting out of the ground. mulching is more efficient than using a chainsaw or a tractor with a bush hog and is more cost-effective than a bulldozer, loader, and hauler. This one-machine, one-operator method can take all stumps and stems flush to the ground, leaving a surface that can be immediately driven over, mowed, or seeded.
