Bush Hogging

Property owners throughout East Alabama and surrounding areas may occasionally have an unsightly area on a portion of their lot which is not being used because of overgrown brush and natural debris. Residential Dirt Work can turn areas such as these into a usable, functional space by clearing it out using a process known as bush hogging / brush clearing using a 4WD Kubota tractor or a skid steer with an extreme duty cutter able to cut trees up to 6" in diameter.  

What is Bush Hogging? 

Bush Hogging is the process of using a rotary cutter to clear areas of land that have been overgrown with tall grass, brush, vegetation and plant material. Typically the rotary cutter is pulled behind a tractor, having one or more blades spinning parallel to the ground and attached radially to a central axis. The term Bush Hogging has come to describe this process since Bush Hog is well known manufacturer of rotary cutters. 

Why might I need Bush Hogging?


The process of bush hogging allows for larger areas of land to be maintained then with a conventional riding mower. Bush hogging is particularly effective for areas that have been overgrown to the point that a traditional mower would not work, and hand clearing would not be an effective solution. Basically, you can think of bush hogging as the application you would use for your most large, hard to maintain areas.
