Land Clearing & Invasive Species Control
Mulching with this new technology is simply the fastest and most cost effective
way to clear your land. It is surpassing the traditional methods of bulldozing
and drum style mulching of trees. With the advanced technology of our new
machine, ECO Mulcher made by Advanced Forestry Equipment, production is increased.
Mulching is a unique
single step process of cutting down and mulching trees and
unwanted vegetation up to 9" in diameter instantly. A horizontal blade cuts the tree and projects it forward. It is then sucked up and turned into mulch. What is left behind is material mulch that is the most natural to the environment. It is beneficial both environmentally and aesthetically.
What's better about the ECO Mulcher?
Several invasive species (not native to Michigan) are taking over our forests. They can only be controlled with a Herbicide applied to the stump since grinding/shredding only stimulates growth. Hydro-axes, drum mulchers and brush hogs (the old style method) bury these stumps in the mulch causing the Herbicide to be less effective. The Eco mulcher cuts down the invasive plants, processes it and then discharges the debris forward leaving the stump clean cut at the ground level and exposed for the Herbicide application to be a lot more effective. We also have the ability to put extension teeth on the bottom of the cutter disc that will completely remove stumps and roots from the ground for certain applications. There is no other forestry attachment in production that does either of the above.
