With the Forestry Mulcher we are able to mulch trees, either standing or previously felled. The mulcher is particularly effective in getting rid of awkward material such as hawthorn or blackthorn which presents problems when trying to chip in the traditional manner or to reduce the amount of invasive species such as Alder, Rhododendron and Sycamore before they take hold.

Mulching is a cost effective and sustainable way of removal of unwanted vegetation on development sites. In-situ mulching allows for the arisings to be incorporated into the topsoil. This removes the need for costly offsite disposal of organic waste. Where offsite disposal is required, this can easily be accommodated by mulching of cut material in windrows, the arisings can then be removed from site for green waste composting or other uses.
