The list of land clearing equipment can start with simple hand tools and extend all the way up to enormous bulldozers used for clearing. You will need a powerful commercial grade chain saw or two and all the safety equipment that one uses with chain saws.

If you’ve never operated a chain saw, then you must obtain training. Cutting down trees is very dangerous. Even when a tree has fallen, it can have stored energy that can cause the tree to roll or move in such a way to cause the saw to bind or the tree to fall on you.

Chain saws used all day in the field require sharpening. If you use a handy special tool, you can field dress a chain in about ten minutes.

Ways of Clearing

There are many ways to do land clearing. The method used is often based on what happens to the trees and bushes that are being removed. It is always recommended to employee or hire an expert in tree removal and clearing, like Jacksonville Area Tree Removal, with a professional they will have the right equipment to clear your lot quickly, professionally, and safely.

Tree Machine Rentals

You often can rent medium-sized equipment that can do a somewhat decent job of clearing land. A powerful skid-steer loader can be rented that is able to move stumps that weigh over two tons. a tracked excavator backhoe can dig drainage trenches and remove stumps with ease.

Do you have the skills?

These types of mechanical equipment be very proficient for an experienced user. It can take hours or days for a beginner to learn how to get the most efficiency from these machines, so don’t expect to get lots of work done the first few times using rented land-clearing machinery.

If you decide to rent heavy mechanical equipment like this, you want to ask the rental company if they have a training facility where you can learn how to safely use the machines.

If you decide to cut down trees using a chain saw, avoid cutting down several trees that fall down upon one another. You could end up with a mess of limbs that make it hard to get in to remove the debris.

Safety First

When starting a land-clearing project try to recruit helpers. You will have some hand work to do with smaller tools and it can become cumbersome if you try to do this alone.

For safety reasons it is also a good idea to have others there for safety reasons. If someone gets hurt, you will have someone else who can give first aid or call for help.

Once you have cleared your land you will need to assess if erosion will be a problem. One way of holding the topsoil in place is to seed the ground with some sort of grass that will help with erosion. Talk with a local extension agent or government soil district employee who knows how to preserve this valuable natural resource.

To Your Trees Health

To Your Trees  Health – Rot or Damage- 

Your healthy tree’s trunk joins its leafy branches above with its growing roots base below. It’s what keeps it all together. If damage occurs to the trunk or it starts rotting it can effect the whole tree.

So what should you do if you have part of the tree trunk that gets damages or starts rotting?

It is not recommended to cut off and seal a rotting portion of a tree trunk. This can leave the tree vulnerable to more infections and could make the tree worse. Trees will try to heal the damaged area by sealing the area its self and will continue to grow.

Tree paint will not close wounds or prevent the spread of diseases. You could do more damage then good by using tree paint. Another misconception is trying to cut out the bad spot. Trying to cut out the problem will not solve the it because the issue is deeper than that. Trees rot because of a disease called wood decay, which usually targets old, large specimens and infects their wood from the inside out. It is almost impossible, to treat wood decay.

Rot could be a sign that your tree’s weak or unstable. You will want to call on a tree removal specialist to assess to see if it’s at risk of falling on your home. Keep your trees health.

Here are some options that your tree specialist may recommend:

* If the tree is mostly healthy and the decayed area is small, there’s a chance that it will seal itself over the rotting spot as it naturally grows new wood.

*Tree health care such as watering, fertilizing and pruning can do wonders to help extend the life of your tree. Just use cation if it is at risk of falling. Also, try to avoid any additional injury to the tree.

*If the tree trunk rot has weakened the tree to the point where it poses a risk to people or your home and property, you will want to have an experienced tree removal service take down the tree for safety.

Tree Maintenance Tips To Keep Your Trees Healthy and Strong

Find the right tree for the right area. Spots with enough sun and space that will allow your tree full growth capacity is ideal. Keep in mind before you dig where power-lines and underground utility’s are and do not plant to close to your home. Also, one of the biggest mistake made is planting the tree to deep.

  1. Properly water your trees! Do not rely on the rain to water your trees, check your trees regularly for moister and dryness. Typically an older tree will need one inch of water a week. Newer trees will need somewhere between 4 to 10 gallons each week during the first few growing seasons.
  2. Mulching adds not only beauty to your tree, but it also insulates the tree roots, protects the roots from lawn mower cuts and helps prevent dry soil. When you mulch your tree start by removing the grass and weeds around the tree and spread about two to four inches of mulch. Make sure not to cover the base of the trunk.
  3. Fertilizing is a way to add nutrients back into the soil to feed your tree. Use a slow-release fertilizer regularly to release nutrients into the soil. Also, test your soil occasionally to see if any elements are missing or low in supply.
  4. Proper trimming improves trees’ structure while also removing any deadwood holding them back. Major pruning should be done when the tree is dormant and doesn’t have any leaves. Then, in the summer, clean up and clear out small, dead or damaged branches.
  5. Make an appointment with a tree specialist for your tree. Spotting signs of pests or diseases early can make the difference. You want them to look for red flags like discolored leaves, cankers, holes, and more. They can provide you with a plan of action on how to help.

Proper care will ensure growth and a healthy tree. If your tree is beyond care and posses a safety threat it is always recommended that you hire a professional tree trimming or removal service to exam your tree, keep your trees health.

How to Pick a Tree Service

How to pick a Tree Service

Jacksonville Tree Service

While smaller tree care projects, such as pruning and small tree removals, are certainly within the abilities of the average property owner, large tree jobs should be left to the professionals.

Our motto at Jacksonville Area Tree Service is that if a homeowner can keep both feet on the ground then they should call a professional tree service company in Jacksonville, FL to service their trees. However, even this prudent decision is not without risks. There are many under-insured, unlicensed, and even unscrupulous tree service companies in the area.

Therefore, in this blog, we offer tips and suggestions on what to consider when selecting a tree service in Jacksonville.

Licensed Service

Are they licensed in the state of Florida and do they have insurance, both for their business (liability) and their workers (workers compensation)? This question is the most important aspect of your research into area tree service companies.

Without the proper licensing and insurance, you as the property owner, expose yourself to both financial and legal risks if an accident should happen. Always ask those you are receiving tree service estimates from if they hold the proper licensing and insurances.


Do they have the necessary credentials and qualifications? There are several tree care associations in the country that are signs a tree service company is properly credentialed and qualified. These include the Tree Care Industry Association (TCIA) and the International Society of Arborists (ISA). Further the Better Business Bureau is always a good general source for information about a business’s reputation.

Offer Estimates

Do they provide a written estimate and detail all the work estimates? Always get a firm written estimate that details the exact nature of work to be performed. We have seen numerous situations where work is not documented only to expose the property owner to additional expenses when the work is performed. Further, make sure the estimate details the exact use of equipment to be used. You don’t want to discover the day of the job that heavy equipment will be used potentially damaging your lawn and landscape.

Did you obtain multiple estimates for the work, and did you compare and contrast these estimates? Obtaining several (at least 3) estimates is wise in that it will provide you with a variety of opinions, costs, and approaches. However, all estimates will not be the same, so it is further prudent to assess each estimate in terms of the work scope involved. A more expensive estimate actually might not be more expensive if it involves more work.


Did you obtain references from multiple sources? Obtain references from the tree service business themselves and make sure they are current (within 1-3 months). Old references are not necessarily indicative of current business practices. Additionally, check online reference sources, such as Google, Facebook, Yelp, etc. These sources provide a variety of reference material and will help you make a better decision.

How to pick a qualified, professional Jacksonville tree service to perform tree removal or tree trimming need not be difficult using these suggestions. Just following these guidelines and you will be assured of hiring a top-notch tree care company.
