FORESTRY MULCHING

Forestry Mulching is the most effective and efficient way to clear vegetation for bushfire mitigation purposes. The process involves cutting and chipping vegetation that is up to 500mm in diameter and laying that mulch back onto the soil surface. Our machinery is not restricted by many vegetation types and can mulch on most terrains.

Forestry Mulching is beneficial as it leaves a coarse mulch on top of the ground that reduces soil erosion, retains soil nutrients and decreases evaporation rates. Mulching is a more cost and time effective method rather than removing and transporting vegetation
waste to disposal facilities.

Forestry Mulching applications including Right of Way clearing; such as firebreaks, vehicle and personal access passages; removal of invasive species and can be used for parkland clearing.

We use Terex Posi Track and Fecon mulching machinery, which is preferable as it has a very low ground pressure, and can be safely operated on inclines of up to 30 ̊. Our team are among some of the very few in the state with forestry mulching endorsements on their licenses.

Forestry Mulching is a long-term fire mitigation and property maintenance solution that can have a desirable finish on any scale, small or large.

Fire Breaks

Firebreaks are mineral earth tracks located on the perimeter of the property and are a requirement according to local city council regulations. In some cases, it can prevent a fire from moving into surrounding parcels of land or in the unlikely event of a bushfire; a firebreak reduces the destruction caused by the fire and provides the safe access for fire and emergency vehicles.

A mineral earth firebreak can be achieved by various methods, the most common being cultivation with a rotary hoe or with machinery buckets. The best approach will be discussed prior to commencement of any projects.

Slashing

A residential block slash is a process by which the grass is cut without collecting or removing the clippings. This must be done according to council regulation and will lower fuel load for a potential fire.

A paddock slash is a process to cut grass on rural properties, similar to a block slash, and uses our front deck slasher or our industry standard work safe approved tractor slasher.

Licensed Weed Spraying

Weed spraying is an alternative control method to areas not easily accessible to machinery. Spraying can control weed growth for extended periods of time. Our chemicals are carefully chosen to suit the application and we are licensed by the Department of Health to carry out weed spraying activities.

We can customize a maintenance program that suits your property throughout the year or weed spraying on your request.
