Popular reasons to clear land

Unfortunately, sometimes clearing land is necessary. Below are some of the reasons why people on the north shore and northern beaches would clear land.

  • Safety – sometimes large trees can pose a threat to properties and people. Gum trees are notorious for dropping large branches when there is a shortage of water. This can injure or kill people and damage houses, businesses, public property, cars and more.
  • Fire prevention – Trees can be good fuel for a wild fire. If trees are densely populated around property, then they pose a fire danger to the property and its inhabitants.
  • Development – Sometimes, we need to make space in order to expand our homes, businesses or even lifestyle. A backyard full of trees may be difficult to enjoy.
  • Allow other plants to thrive – Sometimes densely populated trees hinder the growth of smaller trees and plants struggling to get sun.
  • Landscaping – If you have other plans for different plants, then land clearing may help to transform your landscape into something more admirable. 

How long will land clearing take?

At G McColl Tree Services, our team will take many factors into consideration for land clearing. We will have to determine the access required for the equipment and machinery, how much land needs to be cleared, the density of vegetation, and any potential sloping/uneven areas of land that may be present.

We will be able to provide you with a scope of works for your specific land clearing project following a consultation/site visit. If you would like a quotation for your next land clearing job, speak to one of our experts at G McColl Tree Services today.
