One of the many services that we offer here at B&B Tree Management is forestry mulching, which is a method of land clearing that uses a single piece of equipment to selectively clear unwanted vegetation. Our team has recently purchased a new tool for the job—namely, the Cat© 299D3 XE Land Management Compact Track Loader—and we are eager to put it to work for you.
In this article, we will provide a brief overview of how the forestry mulching process works (and how the Cat© 299D3 will make it easier) so that you have a clear idea of what to expect.
Overview of Forestry Mulching
Forestry mulching equipment such as the Cat© 299D3 is designed to remove trees, shrubs, vines, and other vegetation. The machine itself resembles a bulldozer, but instead of a blade designed to move earth, it is equipped with a mulcher designed to cut down plants and instantly turn them to mulch.
In addition, forestry mulching machines tend to be compact and maneuverable, which allows you to be more careful about which trees and plants you want to remove. We chose the Cat© 299D3 for its powerful hydraulics, protective sealing, excellent performance, and quiet comfort, among many other benefits.
Benefits of Forestry Mulching
Forestry mulching offers several benefits compared to other methods of land clearing. As we mentioned previously, this method is designed to give you more control over which plants are removed, rather than simply clear cutting whole areas of trees.
In addition, once the mulching equipment has thoroughly chewed up the vegetation, it leaves behind a layer of mulch over the ground. This mulch helps to prevent the soil from eroding, and it retains moisture, which allows the remaining plants to grow strong and healthy.
