Below, we describe bush hogging in detail and outline why you may need it:
What is Bush Hogging?
Bush hogging—also known as brush hogging—is a land clearing method that uses a specific rotary-cutting deck attachment to trim down brush. This bush hog attachment is fastened to the back of a tractor or similar vehicle and pulled behind it. The bush hog then eliminates the brush it encounters, operating as a kind of heavy-duty lawnmower.
Why Do You Need It?
Although standard lawnmowers can mow lawns and somewhat overgrown vegetation, they cannot manage tall or dense bushes. More substantial brush calls for a professional land and brush clearing solution like bush hogging. Such machinery can handle grass, weeds, bushes, vines, and even small trees.
While bulldozing and other heavy machinery can effectively clear land, they also tend to uproot vegetation and disturb the soil. Bush hogging, on the other hand, preserves your property’s soil while still clearing brush. A non-invasive practice, bush hogging cuts down brush on the soil surface and leaves existing roots in the ground.
Furthermore, bush hogging’s byproduct helps the remaining vegetation to flourish. The machine creates a nutritious mulch that, when spread around desired trees and shrubs, supports healthy growth. So, the soil is not only left undisturbed but also in a healthier state than before bush hogging.
The best time for bush hogging is summer, though it can help your property at any time of the year. Long, sunny days provide ample daylight for technicians to complete their work. Moreover, overgrowth will be the most prominent during this season, providing the greatest visual difference as well as producing the most nutrient-dense material.
