What Are The Benefits Of Land Clearing?

Updated: Jun 17, 2021

Land clearing is a service used to remove rocks, trees, brush, and other vegetation from plots of land and properties. While this practice has a bad reputation with some environmentalists, taking a responsible approach to land clearing can be advantageous for the environment and property owners.

Land Clearing Can Stabilize The Environment

Existing ecosystems thrive when conditions are ideal. Clearing away brush and debris helps keep raccoons, feral hogs, snakes, insects, and other pests away.

Further, when land gets neglected, it can quickly get overrun with weeds, saplings, and grass. By clearing away overgrowth, the plants you want to grow to get the sunshine and resources they need to thrive.

Conditions The Soil

​Land clearing can help condition the soil by adding nutrients back in. This approach is crucial for land used in agriculture. Farmers could use methods like clear-cutting or slash and burn for their clearing needs.

The more fertile the soil, the healthier and more vital any fruits that came out of it are likely to be.


Safety is always a top priority. Land clearing helps minimize fire risk by creating a natural fire break and removing collections of dead plants, leaves, twigs, brush, tree branches, and other potential fire risks.

Dry rotting wood isn't just a fire hazard. Tree limbs on dead, partially dead, or dying trees could potentially fall, injuring a person or property.

Dead trees can spread airborne viruses that can infect and kill them, too. So, the sooner dead trees get cleared, the better. Additionally, they can release pollen, a common irritant for asthma, allergies, and other respiratory issues.

Makes Way For Development

When you own a significant piece of land, the more you can use it, the better. Land clearing services are ideal for adding roadways or paths for trucks, ATVs, machinery, and more.

With this path cleared, you can more easily access pastures, hunting areas, the back forty, and fields.

To clear land efficiently, you'll need to bring out the big guns in equipment. Depending on the land clearing project size and scope, land clearing equipment includes tree shears, deck mowers, mulchers, chippers, track or wheeled carriers, grapples, stump grinders, and log jaws to fall and remove trees, tear down brush, remove stumps, and dislodge roots.

As anyone might imagine, this is a significant undertaking that shouldn't get done alone! For this reason, it's always an excellent idea to contact a professional land clearing company.

With years of experience, a skilled team, and all the equipment needed to leave your property better off than when they found it, Texans can rely on Lone Star Trapping for all their land clearing needs. Free estimates are always available.
