Land clearing incorporates the elimination of trees as well as the brush on a specific land. Based on the size, purpose, and location of the land, the removal may require advanced land clearing tools and equipment. The three basic methods of land clearing and lot clearing are:
- Cutting and grinding
These methods are generally universal, and should be performed by professional tree service companies for safety and efficiency. I visited a client in Volusia County several weeks ago, and they cleared a 5-acre lot in order to develop and sell the property. It was a heavily wooded area with trees and excessive overgrowth. The company they hired was New Smyrna Tree Service located in New Smyrna Beach, FL. They really did an outstanding job and had the entire project completed in 4 days.
The burning method is very dangerous and should not be considered without professional help. It is also the most dangerous land clearing method. There are numerous new accounts of this activity getting completely out of control and threatening neighborhoods and people, as well as entire communities.
