Why Do Forestry Mulching?
You can apply many techniques in clearing land and getting rid of damaged trees and overgrowth. And these techniques of cutting and hauling away all the debris are effective. However, it cannot help to improve the environment on your property. Forestry mulching is a more environmentally friendly method. You can use forestry mulching on any land whatever the size and development status. Here are the benefits of forestry mulching.
One of the great benefits of forestry mulching is that it reduces the impact to the landscape. If you use traditional land clearing method, you cannot selectively clear areas of the property. Mulching can be done from plant to plant. On the spot where the tree or shrub stands, they are mulched. This reduces that amount of heavy equipment needed to be brought on-site. Thus, it preserves the nearby plant life.
Forestry mulching also prevents erosion. In other land clearing methods, after work is completed large chunks of bare dirt are left behind. Wind and rainstorms washes away the dirt. Erosion issue on the land are created. The risk of erosion is reduced significantly with mulching. The soil is kept in place with mulch. The ground cover plants and natural grasses are protected. Over time, the property’s drainage can be kept in good shape. The health of the environment is also preserved.
There is long term improvement of the soil with forestry mulching. In garden beds, mulch gives the soil nutrients in a slow manner that helps the plants to grow. The same effect is accomplished by forestry mulching. Mulched shrubs or trees receive nutrients from the wood when they slowly enter the soil. The soil is enriched over time and reduces the risk of mold and fungus damaging trees that are still standing.
If there is a construction project, the first steps are to clear the land and trees. In preparation, there is a need to cut, haul, and cleanup. For all these works, separate machinery is required. Forstry mulching simplifies the entire process making use of only a single machine for every step. This reduces cost of rental and time.
In traditional lot clearing methods, the soil is damaged in a major way. Trees and bushes are uprooted and the risk of erosion is increased. Erosion makes the soil turn infertile. It will affect your ability to plant crops or shrubbery in the future. If you construct buildings on it the foundation will be less stable. The earth is not disturbed with forestry mulching. And this is because trees and roots are processed where they stand.
Forestry mulching is also used to preserve natural habitats. Natural water sources can be restored with forest mulching.
