Forestry Mulching

Forestry mulching describes a process of landscaping clearing that involves using a mulcher to shred vegetation. The resulting broken-down vegetation is known as ‘mulch’ and offers considerable benefits for the ecosystem.

When reintroduced into the soil, mulch makes it richer and more fertile. Plus, mulching is a much faster and more efficient way to clear areas of land than doing so by hand. It can take care of all kinds of vegetation – from trees to shrubs – in a short, effective amount of time.

What Can Mulching Be Used For?

Mulching in NZ is a popular method of creating nature trails in parks, recreation centres and hunting areas. You can also use it to clear out a vacant lot or improve an overgrown property, for instance, to boost its value before putting it on the market.

As an eco-friendly land clearing method, it’s excellent for disposing of piles of unwanted vegetation, grinding up fallen trees, chewing up invasive plants or clearing fences and a property line. You can even use it to prevent bushfires by mulching broken branches, leaves, trees and other organic fuel sources scattered over a forest floor.

Why Mulch?

Mulching is an essential part of any gardener or landscaper’s routine. Mulch protects the soil structure, stabilises its temperature, suppresses weed growth, supplies the earth with essential nutrients and helps prevent erosion or runoff.

Growing a healthy garden involves more than just taking care of the plants. You have to take care of the soil, too. Healthy soil helps plants grow better and create a beautiful, thriving landscape.

How Mulching Works

Mulching is the best way to clear land covered in unwanted shrubs like gorse, woolly nightshade, blackberry and more. It involves running a large, spinning drum covered in ‘teeth’ over the weeds, breaking them down into small pieces. As mulchers can be used on any kind of terrain, from flat land to steep slopes, they’re highly versatile land clearing equipment.

It’s especially useful when it comes to clearing gorse. Spraying and burning gorse can help the gorse seeds hidden in the soil germinate quicker, leading to greater future growth.

In contrast, mulching the surface gorse leaves behind decomposing matter that can discourage the germination process. Any remaining young gorse can later be sprayed when it is most vulnerable to the spray’s effects. This will save you money and produce far more effective land-clearing results.

How Mulch Helps The Soil

A layer of mulch can insulate the soil, protecting the plant roots within it from extreme heat or cold. And as the mulch decomposes, it will provide the earth with fresh, organic matter, nourishing it and improving its structure.

In the warmer spring and summer months, the climate heats up, and plants begin to grow faster. Mulching thus becomes especially important for preventing the soil from drying out. By keeping the ground moist, plants can put their roots down more deeply, which means you won’t have to water them as often. That’s beneficial during our hot, dry Kiwi summers.

Dehydrated plants are stressed plants, which means they are less productive and more vulnerable to disease or damage from insects. By acting as an insulation blanket, mulch ensures that the soil’s moisture levels are consistent.

In addition to keeping plants cool in the summer, mulch traps warmth around them in the cooler months. This can extend the growing season and possibly improve crop yields.
