Frequently Asked Questions

Are you able to provide and hourly/daily rate or per acre price?

No. We offer free estimates since each project can be completely different and we want to make sure you are getting what you are expecting.

For example, in forestry mulching each acre is different. You could have a less heavily wooded acre which wouldn’t require as much time as another acre.

Is Permitting required for your project?

Sometimes. With the forestry mulching service there is no permit required but if you go into conventional clearing where you are disturbing the ground by pulling stumps, moving dirt, etc. then a permit is usually required for a certain square footage. (county requirements vary)

If a permit is required, we can help with the information needed for the permit application but the homeowner/landowner is responsible for submitting all paperwork for approval.

Are you a tree company?

No. While we are an excavating contract that has equipment to knock over trees in an area away from structures, we do not offer climbing/rigging services for trees close to houses, and other buildings.

If the trees are smaller and can be mulched (or already downed) then, the forestry mulching can be done in those areas.

Do you offer services for smaller projects?

Yes. We service residential and commercial projects and no job is too small for us.

Do you offer landscaping services?

No. We can help with drainage solutions, grading (to level out your property) and expanding space ie: forestry mulching, stone/gravel placement, but we do not offer planting shrubs, removal of shrubs, sod placement, hydro-seeding, retaining walls, etc.
