Land clearing costs were a huge pain to me, until I found the right company. It was not so much that their prices were competitive that sold me (although they were), it was the value of their service. The land clearing cost per acre was only a bit lower, but the time it took them beat the competition in the end. Their land clearing prices made it not only affordable, but downright vital of a cost to clear land.
My land was littered with tree stumps and, unbeknownst to me, these tree stumps were spreading diseased wood to my healthy trees and the shrubbery nearby. That was why I needed a fast land clearing company rather than a company who could do it cheaply. That was why I decided to pay the land clearing cost that I did.
You see, a land clearing company will process all the removed material right there, on site. They will stockpile it, spread it, and remove the processed materials, depending on the request of the customer. Plus, you can sell these material, like wood or lumber, to tree harvesting companies and make some of the cost back.
Sometimes, land clearing companies will work hand in hand with a gas drilling company in order to prepare the land for drilling of Marcellus shale, which contains largely untapped natural gas reserves. Before Macellus shale is able to be tapped for natural gas, the trees, the brush and other vegetation has to be cleared from the area first, which is why land clearing companies often work hand in hand with natural gas companies.
If you think you need your land cleared, then chances are you do. I would recommend getting in touch with a company and finding your land clearing cost today.
