Buying property is a huge investment and is the first step in the long rewarding process of building your home or business. The next step, land clearing and grading are just as important. An expert land clearing service provided by Timber Works Tree Care ensures professional, quality work that you can trust. With ISA-certified arborists, we have the experience to fully understand the extent of what your land needs and how it must be prepared before any construction takes place. Here’s what you should know: 

Why Use A Land Clearing Services?

When starting a new construction project on your land, there are a lot of steps to prepare the site before you lay the first brick. The extent of land clearing depends on the property at hand, but bushes, rocks, trees, and other natural clutter can make it a struggle to build anything. Even nearby trees with extensive root systems can cause problems with your build farther down the line. The first step of any construction project is to compare the project blueprints to the site and make sure the area is clear of any excessive foliage.  

Another important part of land clearing is called grading. Simply because a property is cleared of rocks, bushes, and trees; does not necessarily mean it is ready to be built on. Grading involves improving the quality of the land to a standard that’s safe and ready for construction. Installing erosion prevention measures, digging foundations, and connecting the site to electricity and utility services are just some of the important steps in grading. All of these land clearing services serve to prepare your property for whatever project you’re planning.

What Can You Do?

When it comes to the actual clearing of the land, and if your property is small enough, there may be a certain amount you can clear on your own, such as leaves and light branches. However, it is always better to hire a team of professionals, whose experience and expertise guarantee a more thorough, efficient, and safer job.

There are some things you can do to help save money on land clearing service. First, before you buy a property, check how much land clearing is necessary. Depending on the size of the job and location, it may be worth it to buy a property that is more immediately ready to develop. Some of the debris of the clearing process can be reused–saving you money–or even sold such as the wood from any trees that may be cut down during the process. Timber Works does work with timber buyers and can assess whether you have any money in your wood. However, in most cases the wood is not as valuable as one would expect so by working with timber buyers we can give you the best price. As a final step, check and see if there are any tax write-offs you can receive for developing the property. Depending on the location, this can save you more money on your project.
