Brush Clearing

Posted 3/12/2013

Improve your landscape's appearance and also its fire safetey. Excessive brush growth represents an unsafe level of fuel and can be a hazard in the event of fire.

Underbrush consists of low growing shrubs, bushes, wild grass and weeds. Out of control underbrush may cause brush fires or weeds and unwanted shrubs taking the place of plants you'd like to grow. Using underbrush management techniques may decrease the risk of brush fire and increase the productivity of pasture, grass and your choice of flowers.

Clear Undergrowth Yourself

Wear gloves, long sleeve shirt, long pants, solid shoes and safety goggles when you clear undergrowth. Clearing underbrush may expose you to poison oak, brambles, snakes or other natural hazards.

You can use hand tools such as garden pruners to cut back underbrush. Cut the underbrush at the base of the trunk and cut weeds down to the ground.

For some situations you may be able to use electric, battery, or gas powered brush cutters with string or metal attachments.  When clearing underbrush, you will typically use an electric weed whacker around the house, and a battery or gas powered cutter for areas where an electric cord won't reach.  Some brush cutters have metal blade attachments that can cut through thick-based shrubs that string cutters will not slice through. When clearing underbrush, follow manufacturer's safety instructions.

For open areas, you can run a heavy-duty lawnmower or pull a brush hog behind a tractor. Underbrush management includes lawns and pasture areas.  A brush hog is a tractor appliance that is used for clearing underbrush in pastures.  Lawnmowers and brush hogs may help prevent unwanted weeds from flowering and spreading.

Check with your local rental store for affordable brush cutting equipment rentals if you don't plan on clearing brush more than once a year.
