Land Clearing - When Might you Need it?

Land clearing is an important part of the land development process. Whether you're looking to build a new homeinstall a new driveway, or build a horse pasture, if there are trees and shrubs in the way, chances are they'll need to be removed.

Stages of Land Clearing

Stage 1: Tree Removal / Tree Cutting

Most land clearing projects start with removal of the trees. Depending on the density of the trees and size of the trees and how close to existing structures they are; this can either be done by hand (with chainsaws, tree climbers, etc.) or with heavy machinery.

Stage 2: Stump Removal

Depending on the intended end use, you may or may not need to have the stumps removed as part of your project. If you're putting in a new driveway or building a horse pasture, removal of the stumps is recommended to avoid unevening settlings over time, as the stumps breakdown. If you're looking to turn the area into a garden or new lawn, stump removal is not generally needed.

Stage 3: Finish Grading

The third stage of your land clearing project may involve bringing in fill material to level out uneven areas and grading out the area to create a smooth, finished surface. Depending on the site conditions, finish grading may be sufficient, particularly if the soils are good. For more on finish grading services, please check out our finish grading page.

Stage 4: Topsoil & Grass

If the intended finished product is to have a smooth lawn, the final stage of a land clearing project may involve importing fresh, nutrient rich topsoil that is then finished with seed.
