Land Clearing

Services include cedar and honey locust eradication, woody vegetation removal from terraces, trail clearing, and brushy vegetation management.  These services are performed using hand labor with chainsaws, brushsaws, or equipment operation when conditions allow.  Herbicide application greatly reduces opportunities for sprouting and re-growth of unwanted vegetation.

Hickory Ridge Forestry owns a Timberline HT tree shear capable of shearing trees up to 14” in DBH.  This shear received modifications by HRF accommodating a spraying system delivering herbicide application to cut stumps directly after shearing operations.  HRF operates a rubber tracked compact track loader providing maximum versatility with a soft footprint.  Piling of debris by hydraulic grapple is available where applicable to consolidate remaining biomass.
