Hydro Ax vs. Bull Dozer
The Hydro Ax mulches
trees and brush, allowing the material to be returned to the
ground. This one step process spreads mulch over the ground
that will hold in moisture. The bottom layer will compost
and restore nutrients to the depleted soil. This compost
layer will allow the native grasses to develop deep strong
root systems. The problem with a lot of ranches we have
worked on, was the dozer clearing years ago. After land is
cleared by a dozer, or a loader, the soil washes away in the
next rain storm. The dozer turns every rock out of the
ground, the soil washes away leaving nothing but the exposed
rock. I rocked my entire house with such stone from job
sites, and ranches all over the Hill Country.
Ranch land littered with
stone has little value to a deer, cow, or a land owner.
Cover the rock with mulch and now you have a base for soil
that can maintain healthy grasses.
Fire danger is another
reason to consider a Hydro Ax. Every thing cleared by a
dozer, or tree shears, has to be burned or mulched.
The risk and liability of burning the neighbor’s property is
a concern to consider.
Do not think that cedar
pushed out of the ground, or cut by tree shears will
decompose and return to the ground in your lifetime, or your
children’s for that matter. Everywhere you go notice
the fence post, chances are, and they are cedar (Ash Juniper
or Mountain Cedar, all the same animal).
We see posts, cut by
an ax a long time ago, chainsaws have been been around for
decades. Juniper Cedar posts last 100 years or better. Piles or
trees will be there that long as well.
