SLCS specialises in Forestry Mulching, a modern clearing process for trees, scrub and stumps where undesired vegetation is removed, ground into mulch and returned to the cleared land; as opposed to the old technique of either windrow burning or moving the rich organic matter entirely from the site.
The mulch, which is spread across the cleared site, retards initial regrowth, minimises erosion, and returns nutrient-rich organic matter back to the topsoil.
This mulching process also minimises damage to the remaining trees by protecting from the exposure of feeder roots that may result from traditional clearing methods; the resultant layer of mulch will naturally decompose, returning nutrients to the soil.
Soil degradation and compaction are minimised as the process involves a single-machine operation and the mulch layer also provides protection from subsequent vehicle traffic.
The process is quicker, and more cost-effective than traditional land clearing methods.
With public views changing on forestry and clearing practices, and government authorities heading the call, forestry mulching is quickly becoming the preferred method, and the old 'slash and burn' methods are becoming frowned upon.
