Eco-mulching and Weed Management

Land management involves various activities like weed eradication, mulching, and planting native trees which are all important for maintaining and preserving the natural environment. Weed eradication helps to remove invasive plant species that can harm native ecosystems, mulching helps to protect the soil from erosion and retain moisture, and planting native trees helps to maintain the health and diversity of natural ecosystems and provide important habitat for wildlife, leaving your property in an attractive natural state.


Mulching is another important aspect of land management. Mulch is a layer of organic material that is placed on top of the soil to protect it from erosion and to retain moisture. It can also suppress the growth of weeds and help to improve soil fertility. Mulch can be made from a variety of materials wood chips and often the debris left from mulching the weeds. Jute matting and mulch combined can create an effective layer to prevent weeds from becoming re-established.

Our forestry mulcher is a heavy-duty machine that is used for clearing weeds such as Gorse and Spanish Heath. The forestry mulcher is a cutter head attached to our 3.5 tonne CAT skid steer, which uses a combination of cutting blades and high-speed flail hammers to shred and mulch vegetation. The mulched material is then left on the ground to decompose, reducing the ability of the weeds to regrow while creating a rich environment for natives to be planted into.

Some downsides to using a forestry mulcher include the potential for damage to desirable vegetation or sensitive ecosystems if not used properly. We work in collaboration with ecologists to identify areas of habitat for native fauna and create refuges in nearby vegetation. The machine can be loud and may produce dust and debris, which is more suited to acreges or rural blocks. It is important to consult with a professional before using a forestry mulcher to clear weeds to ensure it is the right solution for your specific situation.

Weed eradication

One of the main benefits of using a forestry mulcher for clearing weeds is its ability to quickly and efficiently remove large areas of unwanted vegetation. The machine can easily navigate rough terrain and can reach areas that may be difficult for manual labor or other types of equipment. Additionally, the mulched material left on the ground can provide benefits to the soil, such as improving fertility and water retention.
