Land clearing is the process of removing trees, stumps, brush, stones and other obstacles from an area as required for land improvement or construction projects.
Sometimes, you just have a patch of land that you want to begin using. Other times, when you’re in the beginning stages of a construction project, you need to clear land for the foundation of the buildings being erected. For farmers, land clearing can be used to prepare the land for crops, clearing brush, trees, rocks, removing stumps, and smoothing out large holes. For a homeowner, however, land clearing is more geared towards making use of property previously unusable, whether because of the thick brush or forested area.
Tree removal and brush clearing can be very difficult and time consuming, and require the operation of heavy machinery. Don’t try to clear the land yourself unless you’re prepared for the costs and time investment.
