Land can be cleared by hand, with machinery, or using a combination of the two. If the land has never been settled it likely doesn’t have any underground utility lines, plumbing, or other conduit that could be damaged. This eliminates the need for hand clearing the land, so using heavy equipment can help expedite the process.

The types of equipment we use to clear land varies depending on several factors such as proximity to utility lines and structures, location, and type of trees and debris that are present at the job site.

For rural areas with dense trees and foliage the scale of the project requires the use of multiple machines to stick to a reasonable deadline.

How much does it cost to clear ½ acre of land?

Why is hiring an insured, bonded land clearing company important?

Land clearing, like tree service in general, is the most dangerous occupation in the United States. According to US Bureau of Labor and Statistics workers in the tree service industry when compared to all other industries have a 15% higher fatality rate. That is why hiring a reputable company that carries insurance and subscribes to workers’ compensation is important to protect your from legal liability should an injury occur.

How is acreage clearing pricing determined?

When we give quotes to clear several acres of land, we give a quote that is accurate to the best of our abilities before we break ground. However, if there are complications or delays that require extra worker, time, and equipment we will bill the hours as needed to cover our costs to provide service to you. We generally charge by the day, but rates vary depending on the terrain, ease of access, and demand.

How do you check to see if there are utility lines, pipes, pipelines, or other obstructions to watch out for before clearing land?

We use ground penetrating radar (GPR) to “see” below the earth’s surface and check for any obstructions or pipes before beginning to clear land. Even if the ground looks untouched to the naked eye, dangerous gas or power lines could be lurking beneath the surface, posing a safety and productivity risk to workers and surrounding properties if disturbed.

If you’re clearing land for development should you have Centerpoint Energy come out to mark any existing gas or power lines?

Yes you should absolutely err on the side of caution and call 311 before starting any land clearing projects to prepare your property for development. If necessary you may need to hire a daylighting company to come out and expose any pipes, plumbing lines, sewer mains, etc.
