What is Brush Hogging?

Brush hogging is when you cut back on overgrown flora, like trees and vegetation, to promote environmental health. While you might think this is similar to standard tree removal services or bulldozing, this sort of landscaping service doesn’t agitate the earth around the area. With our brush hogging services in Tacoma, there is no invasive root extraction or other environmental disruption. Once we clear your land, the soil has enough nutrients to nourish other plants for a healthier ecosystem. Clearing away the brush can even have a positive effect on neighboring properties!

How Does Brush Hogging Work?

Field mowing and brush hogging are a form of rotary mowing. Our machines attach to the back of a tractor or mower and utilize the engine of the vehicle to level the growth of grass and tall saplings as we ride it across the ground.

You might think this sounds similar to a regular lawnmower. However, the brush hogging machine differs from a mower in several ways. For one, the brush hogging machine doesn’t have fixed blades. Instead, it has blades that shift on hinges that allow them to rotate and bounce when they come in contact with fixed items they cannot cut. With this bounce-back motion that moves the blades back and inwards, even if our machine blades hit rocks or massive trees, they’ll rotate to continue moving over the vegetation instead of getting stuck.

How Long Will Brush Hogging Take?

The length of each case we take on depends on a variety of factors. Some of those factors may include:

  • The width of the blade we use

  • The density of the brush on your land

  • The evenness of the terrain (determines how quickly we can drive)

In optimal conditions, our experts can complete about three acres an hour. To mow this quickly, we require easy terrain with dry vegetation and no saplings. If there are any concerns about the terrain or thickness of the underbrush, we may have to slow down to one acre an hour. When we send someone from our team to you, they will assess the work and give you an estimate of what you can expect from our brush hogging services in Tacoma.

How Often Should You Brush Hog?

How often you choose to utilize our brush hogging services depends on the size of the area you need to maintain and how you plan on using it. When it comes to areas used for hunting and pastures, we recommend cutting through the brush every six months to a year. If any of your flora grow more quickly, you may want to consider having someone come out every three to six months, as sometimes trees get too big and need to be dug out by hand.

What Are the Benefits of Brush Hogging?

Keeping your grounds maintained has much greater benefits than just looking nice. Our field mowing services can actually help you create agriculturally friendly land, property that’s ideal for hunting, and space for property development. By clearing away tall grass, saplings, vines, and excessive plant growth, you can:

  • Maintain pasture areas
  • Promote biodiversity
  • Encourage pollinators
  • Diversify wildflower growth
  • Attract wildlife, like deer
