Why Forestry Mulching by Bear Claw Land Services?

We can do forest mulching on almost any terrain, and with our skilled team and the proper equipment, we can mulch your vegetated land in almost any conditions: wet, cold, dry, or hot, our team is ready to tackle your project.

There are many benefits to mulching, including:

Erosion control

By covering the ground with wood chips, you can help cover bare soil and reduce runoff, keeping your valuable soil in place.

Fire risk reduction

By removing dead trees and brush, you can help reduce the risk of wildfires on your property.


Debris and overgrowth can be quickly broken down compared to manually removing brush and debris and hauling it away, delivering an instantly improved appearance for your property.

Soil health

The wood chips produced through forestry mulching act as a natural fertilizer, adding essential nutrients back into the soil and improving the health of the land.

Weed and vegetation control

A carpet of new mulch can help reduce the recurrence of pesky undergrowth that can ultimately contribute to wildfire spread.

Tick and pest control

Did you know that reducing forest overgrowth actually leads to a reduction in tick population? Reducing the tick population is a surprising benefit of forest mulching, limiting the proliferation of these disease-carrying pests.
