Forestry Mowing by RYEX Services


What is Forestry Mowing?

Forestry mowing is a land clearing method that uses a single machine to cut, grind, and clear vegetation. RYEX Services' mulching machine is capable of clearing land of unwanted trees and brush up to 8 inches in diameter with limited disturbance to the soil or desirable vegetation. Our mulching equipment has the ability to operate on steep slopes, in small or tight areas, in poor ground conditions, and in wet or snowy weather. The hydraulic mulching head reduces saplings, shrubs, and trees into mulched material that will decompose and build the quality of your soil.

Benefits of Forestry Mowing

By processing trees and other vegetation where they stand, forestry mulching machines eliminate many of the steps involved in traditional land clearing such cutting, felling, hauling, piling or burning undesired vegetation. By eliminating these steps, there is no need for multiple heavy machines like bulldozers, excavators, tree shears, wood chippers, and hauling equipment which can cause unnecessary damage to desired vegetation and topsoil.

Applications of Forestry Mowing

RYEX Services' forestry mowing service is often used for clearing right-of-ways, trail creation, pipeline/power line easements, fire lanes, vegetation management, invasive species control, wildlife restoration, reclaiming untilled land, removing foliage from building construction sites, and shredding pruned material.

Environmental Benefits of Forestry Mowing

Forestry mowing has become popular among conservation organizations, government agencies, hunt clubs, and private land owners in attempts to maintain natural habitats for pheasants, doves, elk, deer and various other animals. Without proper management of invasive plant species, like the multiflora rose and Japanese Honeysuckle species, native habitats can quickly be overrun by invasives and reduce the available food sources for native animals.
