Lot clearing is essential to preparing property for new development, cleaning up and managing out-of-control vegetation, and can improve property value. But it can be a daunting task—whether a small residential lot or bigger commercial space. And although you may feel you can tackle the job on your own and save some money, that option often leads to frustration, wasted time and effort, and even physical injury. Due to the abundance of risks involved, it’s usually best to leave lot clearing to the professionals.   

The risks associated with lot clearing

Lot clearing and tree removal are inherently dangerous. Risks include injury from cutting trees and falling branches and limbs, working around overhead power lines or underground utilities, using extremely powerful machinery and equipment, and manually pulling on roots and big rocks. And the enormous pile of debris—branches, shrubs, and leaves—can be overwhelming to a homeowner to try to haul away (or even worse, some attempt to burn it in an unsafe manner which could unleash an uncontrollable fire).

An added benefit of lot clearing   

Did you know that lot clearing creates defensible space that can help protect your home during wildfire season? Defensible space is essentially a “buffer zone” between your property and your home. Even tree and plant spacing is critical in reducing the spread of wildfires. Enlist the help of a certified arborist to help you plan and create a defensible space and clear out unnecessary vegetation that can serve as the fuel for a wildfire.
