Fence-Line & Brush Clearance is the process of removing unwanted small woody plants from an area. Typically they grow along fences, inside alleyways, alongside buildings, and on road right-of-ways.
For large areas or long stretches this service can become quite costly very fast depending on a number of variables, but Muskogee Tree has several options to choose from in order to tailor your level of service to meet your expectations and budget. We can simply make a "once over" pass to cut down and dispose of the growth, all the way to our deluxe "clean-sweep" service, which leaves little more than dirt and treated stumps.
In some cases, you may be better off contracting a large land-clearing crew to better suit your needs, but if circumstances require a smaller footprint and more surgical approach than is available with a Bull Dozer and bonfire, we have a solution to meet your needs.
Our general policy is to consider anything under 2 inches in diameter at the base as brush, and anything over that as a tree. However, in areas with a large number of small sapling trees that are close to this size, we will usually include them in the cost of brush clearing as opposed to quoting for individual tree removal.
Absolutely! But unless you just have a large amount of money you want to spend, need the work done without heavy equipment present, or can't locate a land clearing crew - there are probably better and more affordable options for you in cases of projects of this size. That being said, there are other circumstances that preclude the use of a land clearing crew, and in those situations we will do everything we can to meet your budget wherever possible.
We can clear and dispose of everything, leaving dirt and treated stumps, but we are not Landscapers and have no official training or experience in that field. However, we would be glad to refer a professional landscaping company for that portion of the job.
In most cases, yes. However, the roll-off would need to be placed near the work area and easily accessible. If it is not able to be picked up, dumped, and replaced several times during the course of work it may not be the best option. You may also find that method of disposal to be more costly in the long run.
Currently we do not charge to treat stumps. You can request that we do not treat, but it will not change the price.
Tordon RTU. This is an over-the-counter herbicide that kills a large number of the most common trees and woody plants in our area.
Currently we do not offer stump grinding for brush clearance. There are simply too many variables involved with grinding after this type of service, so rather than say "sometimes" and have no clear-cut definition of what that means, we choose to wait until we have better capabilities in this area so we can offer this service across-the-board. We can, however, treat the cut stumps to ensure that the growth does not return.
The cost for Fence-Line & Brush clearance is usually based on an amount per square footage. That amount can range from as little as a 25 cents to as much as several dollars, depending on the following variables.
The amount of underbrush in an area directly affects the cost per square foot. Unfortunately, there is just no way to accurately gauge the variations in density over the entire project, so we average it out after a visual inspection.
An area full of primarily small woody weeds and saplings is much easier and takes much less time to clear than an area full of vines, thorny plants, and briars.
The location of the work area plays a large roll in determining cost. If we have to walk several hundred yards between the work area and the chipper for instance, or if the work area is at the top of a hill, surrounded by water, or otherwise difficult to reach, the cost will increase.
The cost per square foot will vary depending on how extensive the clean-up / disposal. If you just want us to cut the brush and leave it laying, your cost will be minimal. If you need everything cleaned up, disposed of, and nothing left but dirt and treated stumps, the cost will be much higher.
