It starts with brambles or shaggy undergrowth getting out of control and suddenly you have no go areas in your own land where the walking is impossible because of the vegetation and the fact that you can’t see where you’re putting your feet. Or there are parts of your property that aren’t usable because of strewn rocks, fallen trees, and stumps. Which is fine, and provides a natural mini nature reserve for wildlife, right up to the day that you need that space for something, and then it’s time to clear.
If it’s just light branches and growth that can be strimmed back into shape that’s fine but there’s usually more to it than that and often once you start pulling away the light stuff and cutting back the growth you find that the job is bigger than you thought in the first place. Which is why your best bet is to call us and have that land professionally cleared with care and a respect for your plants and your property.
Reasons to Clear
There are plenty of reasons to clear land starting with the simple aesthetic one of the place looking a mess. But there are also times when clearing land is better for your living trees because that fallen timber and piles of old leaves makes it hard for oxygen to get into the soil and often harbors fungi and other pests that can cause problems for your trees.
Then there’s the issue of reusing land for a different purpose, such as clearing space for a patio, a pool, or simply a lawn space you can use. Perhaps you’re thinking of building on that land, and in that case you’ll want to go beyond simple clearing and have your land graded ready for putting in the foundations.
Obviously it’s not land clearance until we’ve taken away what you don’t want and so we clear old timber, dead wood, undergrowth and rocks to leave you with perfectly cleared land ready to do what you want with. If you’ve got tree stumps or will need trees felled then ask about our stump grinding service too.
If your land features timber, whether fallen or to be felled by us that has a potential value then we will assess that and can offer you a discount based on the resale value of that wood. We will automatically figure that in when we come to assess the scale of the task and the likely cost based on the manpower and machinery needed to do the job, and do it right.
Grading goes beyond clearing the dead plant material and smaller rocks. For grading which is the process of preparing the land for the laying of construction foundations you would need to call on more heavy machinery possibly including bulldozers, root rakes, back hoes, and mulchers to fully remove stumps, stubborn rocks and to break up compacted earth and clay to get a better idea of the subsoil.
We keep trees in check, but as arborists we do so in a way that promotes their healthy growth. Just taking a chainsaw to a tree growing in a way you don’t want is a recipe for problems further down the line. For example where once it was considered perfectly acceptable to ‘lop’ trees by cutting down parts of the main stem to leave stubs we know now that this can stunt trees, or encourage decay and fungi that can spread to other trees.
We don’t lop trees, we prune by taking out the right amount of the crown at the right points, and at the right time of year. That way you get the tree shape that you want, but with healthy tree growth going forward. That approach underlies everything we do, including work like tree removal and stump grinding. We always aim to preserve your property but also do right by the trees themselves – because we believe it’s in everybody’s interests.
It’s always sad to see a tree go but there are times when there is no other option and it’s a job you want handled by the professionals. Dead trees that have fallen are one clear example (although even there we would encourage you to keep small areas of dead wood to encourage wildlife).
Seriously damaged or dying trees that pose a risk of falling are another example of trees that must be removed. And of course some times trees have to be removed because of construction work or replanting. In each case the work needs to be done in a controlled fashion to minimize damage to other plants and to ensure the timber is removed safely.
Trees may need trimming because they are getting too close to property or utility lines, they may need trimming because they are unsightly or growing lopsidedly. They may also need trimming to promote their growth (pruning) and and to give better headroom underneath (crown raising).
We know exactly how to trim every type of tree you’re going to find in Florida so the shape is right for you and the growth pattern is right for the plant.
Tangled undergrowth, fallen trees, stumps and rocks can make land unusable and unsightly. Before you can lay that patio, build on it or simply enjoy that lawn, you need the land cleared by our team of enthusiastic and environmentally conscious land clearing specialists.
When a tree is cut it leaves a stump and the roots beneath it. While the roots can usually be left in place (unless you need to plant another tree on the same spot) the stump will prove an eyesore, a trip hazard, and a building obstacle even if it was cut to be as close as possible to ground level. We grind out stumps to below ground level so that you can have a perfectly smooth surface where they used to be.
If trees need support to withstand the weather, stop them from threatening property, or perhaps grow back up straight (think of cabling as like teeth braces for trees) then we can use a variety of cabling and bracing to support and direct your trees as well as steer them back on to the straight and narrow.
Ask us about the difference between static steel bracing, and the possibilities of flexible dynamic bracing to allow your trees to move with wind and storms without risking them falling.
24-Hour Emergency Tree Service
Trees don’t respect working hours when it comes to problems. Storm damage needs to be dealt with immediately and if you think a leaning tree or heavy limbs are a likely threat to your own life and limb then there’s no way you can wait. Which is why we offer a full emergency tree service around the clock, every day of the year.
If it’s a tree emergency then call us now on this number. If you think you may have problems with your trees that will only get worse then call us now on this number. Even if you think your trees are just fine then at least make a note of it but our feeling is that if you have trees then the best thing to do is have them checked out so we can tell you where things may need work.
