Hydro Ax Mulching is the process of using a Hydro Ax to chop trees or mow down brush and turn it into mulch. A Hydro Ax is like a giant shredder attached to a tractor. It is a very powerful tool that is so precise that it will not damage the area surrounding what you are working on.
Advantages of Hydro Ax Mulching:
What would normally take weeks or months, we can do land clearing in minutes
Innovative, efficient, environmentally safe.
Have immediate use of your property to continue projects
Eliminates erosion and run-off problems associated with conventional land clearing methods
Does not damage feeder roots of desired trees
No permits usually required
Eliminates cost of hauling and disposing of debris
Eliminates unsightly burn piles
Mulch helps retain water and builds up top soil
Creates park-like effect, leaving a highly desirable, nutrient-rich mulch
Disadvantages of a Bulldozer:
Causes soil rutting, erosion, and run-off pollution
Destroys top soil, causing increased recovery time
More costly land clearing method, takes more time, and debris must be burned or hauled off at extra expense
Bulky, heavy, and not usable on small properties or close spaces
Requires erosion permits, silt fences, etc.
Completely removes top layer of soil
Scars from burn piles can cause soil sterilization and damage that can last for years
NO selective clearing─ bulldozing will damage nearby root systems of “keeper trees”
