Process We Follow for Lot Clearing

Lot clearing is a complex process that requires proper planning, safety protocols, and disposal methods. Here is a breakdown of how we expertly clears land:

Initial Property Assessment

  • We walk the property and note terrain, access points, soil conditions and other factors that impact the project.
  • Identify protected trees/plants to remain and vegetation to be removed.
  • Look for potential hazards like power lines, structures, or wetlands in the clearing area.
  • Decide on equipment access points and debris hauling routes.

This detailed assessment is key for an efficient, safe clearing plan tailored to your unique property.

Preparing the Work Area

  • Arrange for underground utility marking if needed to avoid damage.
  • Install temporary safety fences around protected trees or structures if necessary.
  • Plan crew parking areas and equipment/materials staging areas.

Proper preparation minimizes property damage and keeps workers safe during tree removal and stump grinding.

Tree and Stump Removal

  • Small trees/shrubs are removed manually with chainsaws, brush cutters, pruners, etc.
  • Large trees are taken down section-by-section by professional arborists.
  • Stumps are ground below grade using commercial-grade stump grinders.
  • Severed roots are removed and holes backfilled with topsoil.

Stump removal is essential to clear land for new construction, pools, etc. Grinding them below grade prevents regrowth.

Debris Removal and Cleanup

  • Downed trees and vegetation are fed into our commercial-grade wood chipper.
  • Chips and mulch are hauled away for recycling or reuse.
  • Any remaining debris is removed from the property and disposed of properly.
  • Once finished, we perform a final property cleanup to leave the area pristine.

Proper debris disposal keeps your lot clear and ensures we limit environmental impact.

Optional Restoration Services

  • If desired, we can provide additional land clearing services like:
  • Grading and leveling
  • Erosion control
  • Installation of topsoil, sod, or hydroseeding

These services restore cleared land for new construction, lawns, or landscaping.

Our goal is to leave your property beautifully cleared and ready to use. We handle lot clearing from start to finish so you can enjoy your revitalized yard.

Cost of Lot Clearing in Farmington Hills, MI

The cost of professional lot clearing depends on several factors:

  • Square footage of the area being cleared
  • Amount and size of trees, stumps, and vegetation being removed
  • Accessibility of the lot and debris removal requirements
  • Additional prep work or restoration services needed

To provide an accurate price quote, our arborists need to see your property in person to assess the full scope of work. Lot clearing costs typically range from $2,000 for a small backyard up to $15,000+ for clearing multiple acres.
