In some cases our client may require a large block to be cleared for a new building or several acres of bush land for major developments or fire trails. This will often require a combination of climbing and dismantling certain trees around the boundaries and then clear felling the remainder. However, in order to process the material as efficiently as possible we will often use much larger machinery, some of which includes:
- Beast Recycler – This is a huge mobile horizontal grinder with a conveyor belt that feeds several large trees at once into an opening 2 meters wide and can process up 150 cubic meters of mulch an hour.
- Excavators and Bobcats – These 20 ton excavators are fixed with grapples to pick up whole trees for stacking and processing, whilst the bobcats can clean up the remaining.
- Forest Mowers – Like the name suggests these machines can quickly mow down small trees and scrub, mulching them up, without damaging the roots of the larger tress around if necessary, and leaving a parkland within a few hours.
Obviously this machinery is only for large scale land clearing since they require transportation costs and if the area involves only 10- 30 trees for example we will often be able to process this with a standard 18inch Vermeer chipper and winch set-up.
