How do I know if I need my land cleared? 

Land clearing, put simply, is the process of getting rid of any boulders, trees, vegetation, or debris in your field, lot, or property. And there are many reasons why you might need to have your land professionally cleared. Some top reasons include: 

Things have gotten out of hand 

First, you can have your land cleared if it’s been neglected or if you haven’t been able to maintain it. If this is the case, it’s easy for weeds, bushes, and other forms of debris to overtake your lawn. This makes it impossible to build or use the land to garden or for agricultural purposes. 

You’re developing something 

If you’re looking to build or to undertake some commercial development, professional land and block clearing can help you prepare your land. 

You’re worried about hazards

Worried about bushfires? Pests? Injuries on your property? You should be if you have debris, boulders, or messy vegetation on your lot. Land clearing can help you eliminate these hazards, as well as the potential health risks associated with them.

Your trees and plants are suffering 

If you notice that your surrounding trees and plants are simply not thriving as they should, it could be a sign that they’re not getting the sunlight, water, and nutrients that they need. Land clearing can help get rid of anything that’s getting in their way, thereby improving the circulation and the general health of the entire area. 

What are the benefits of land clearing? 

Land clearing comes with many benefits. 

Help prevent fires

Dried brush and debris are perfect kindling for a fire. By eliminating the buildup of twigs and other fire hazards, land clearing can help eliminate this threat. 

Help your plants thrive

 If your plants or grass are being smothered by other things, it’s nearly impossible for sunlight and nutrients to reach them effectively. Clearing out dead and overgrown vegetation can help you improve the nutrients in your soil while giving your plants access to the water and sunlight they need to survive. 

Maximize safety

Overgrown trees, debris, or branches aren’t just a fire hazard – they can also harbor mould, damage property, and present a significant fall risk to passerby. Clearing land effectively addresses all of these potential safety concerns. 

Pest control

 If there’s one thing that rats, mice, termites, and other pests love, it’s a big pile of debris. Plus, the pools of water that often settle under this debris make the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, gnats, and other winged pests. 

How much does it cost to clear my land? 

The cost of land clearing can vary greatly based on various factors, including: 

  • Lot size 
  • Tree size, height, and diameter
  • Hills and slopes in the area 
  • Additional debris that can pose a risk to equipment and require extra labour 
  • Trees that must remain or be relocated due to law or preference 

With all of this in mind, you can expect to pay: 

Type of land clearing  Costs per acre 
Light vegetation and trees  $20-$200 
Sloping land and overgrown brush  $500-$2000 
Heavily wooded areas or bushland  $3000-$6000

In Australia, the average costs generally fall somewhere between $1000-$3700. 

How long does land clearing take? 

The amount of time it takes to clear your land will also vary on many factors, including: 

  • Equipment available 
  • Amount of existing debris and brush 
  • Team size
  • Expertise 
  • Ease of access to the land

That said, an average job can take 3-4 hours to clear an acre of land. 

How can you identify a professional land clearing team? 

The right arborist or tree specialist will be able to clear your land correctly and safely. They will be able to use specialised equipment – including chainsaws, excavators, ropes, and pulleys – that helps ensure that the job is done effectively. The right team will also be properly licensed and insured, and they will have information about which trees cannot be removed by law. To identify such a team, make sure to ask them: 

  • What experience do you have? 
  • How long have you been clearing land? 
  • Are you licensed? 
  • Are you insured? 
  • Do you know the land clearing regulations in the area?

Frequently Asked Questions About Land Clearing Specialists in Gold Coast

Can I clear my own land? 

There are two things to consider if you are thinking about clearing your own land: the size of the property and the type of equipment that will be necessary to clear the land. In many cases, it will cost just as much to rent the right equipment as it would to hire a professional team. So we recommend that you start by directly comparing the costs. 

You’ll also need to consider things like the expertise required to operate equipment, potential fuel charges, and insurance charges.

If it still ends up being more economical – and you have the skill and the manpower to get the job done yourself – then you can definitely clear your own land. However, most of our clients find that it’s much more laborious (and costly) than they initially expected, and that it makes more sense to hire a professional. 

What equipment is required to clear land? 

If you choose to clear your own land (or even if you just want to prepare for a professional team), it’s helpful to know what equipment is needed. At minimum, you will need: 

  • Mulcher/mower: This equipment will help you get rid of unruly overgrowth, underbrush, and trees. This is a helpful first step to get rid of some of the tangles and debris before you get working on the bigger stuff. 
  • Bulldozer: Have rock, wood, uneven land, or trash? A bulldozer can get rid of all of it. 
  • Stump grinder: A stump grinder, as the name suggests, helps get rid of tree stumps so the land is even and ready to go.
