How do you value your wood lot? Is it a financial asset? A place of leisure and recreation? Or an ecological haven? Maine Tree Solutions can assist in all of the above, shaping the land to your vision.
Are you looking to build a home, camp, or business on your property? Our process for land clearing is quick and straightforward. We can either haul the logs out in chunks, prepare them to be dragged out as timbers, or leave them where they fall. We chip the brush on site or take it away.
You may want to clear an area for forest management purposes. By clearing you can get firewood or even saleable timber while also creating new habitat for lots of animals. In the long term, it allows you the flexibility to shape your future tree stand. After clearing, you can select healthy and profitable trees by controlling which species grow up. The new wildlife habitat can be a hunter’s dream. Deer love to munch on the tender shoots of young trees and perennial shrubs while birds like grouse and woodcock take shelter in low shrubs and grasses.
We set a fixed daily rate for clearing. Call us for a free estimate.
Build a Trail
Whether you hike, ski, or snowmobile, you’ll need a trail. As with land clearing, we can take the logs and brush away or leave them as is. Have us chip the brush and then spread them in the trail as a walk way. Wood chips will help suppress new growth while providing excellent nutrition for the forest floor.
Thin For Health And Profit
Logging and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. Through intelligent cutting you can provide yearly firewood, improve the quality of your timber and enhance the health of your trees. Think of your wood lot as a single organism in need of pruning. When unwanted trees are cut out, those that remain flourish in the increased space and added light. They’ll grow faster and will be ready to harvest sooner. We’ll start the process by removing weak, diseased, or dead trees. Then we’ll cut out the unwanted species. These can include invasive species like Norway maple or trees that make poor firewood or timber. You will also want to harvest the trees that are ready for sale or use. Cut them out when they’re at a good size to make way for new growth.
Benefits of Chipping
Whether you’re clearing land, building a trail, or thinning your lot, we recommend on site chipping. Wood chips stimulate the fungal decomposition necessary to forest soil health.
