Land Clearing

Land Clearing

Land clearing can be daunting to someone who has just purchased undeveloped property.  Land clearing can be daunting to a property owner looking to clear away unused sections of a larger property, and it can be daunting to those who own developed property and simply want to maintain it. Land clearing on a large scale, and we are talking acreage, is not the job for two guys with lawn mowers. For quality land clearing, the proper equipment is needed as well as the proper experience.

What is involved in land clearing?

Land clearing typically means using equipment ranging from chain saws to large bulldozers, excavators, backhoes or other heavy machinery to remove obstacles like trees, bushes, rocks, uneven dirt and other debris from a parcel of land. If the parcel is being cleared for fire safety, to make it possible to walk around the property or to restore overgrown views, then a selective clearing will remove all underbrush and debris but leave established and desirable trees intact. If the land is being cleared to become pasture or farmland most everything will be removed. And for new construction, often everything in the building footprint will be cleared, leaving an open area of bare dirt.

What does land clearing cost?

Land clearing costs depend on whether the parcel is flat, sloped, grassy, brushy, lightly wooded, heavily forested or a combination of these conditions. Other factors affecting price include local rates, local regulations, the total amount of land being cleared and accessibility.

How to find a good land clearing company

  • Ask neighbors, friends or at the local hardware or feed store for referrals to land clearing or excavation companies. Typically a company representative will visit the property before quoting a price for a land clearing project. If possible, get several estimates.
  • Verify that the company is properly bonded, insured and licensed[12] . Ask for and check references, and look for complaints with the Better Business Bureau

What does land clearing cost?

This is an impossible question to answer in this article. The cost of land clearing depends on a number of factors, all of which are related to the type of land we are talking about. Your best bet is to have several land clearing companies come out to your land and have them walk the land and write up a job quote.  Make sure these companies are licensed and bonded; if not, do not deal with them. There is too much that can go wrong with land clearing; do not leave it to amateurs.
