For property owners, whether residential, agricultural, commercial, or municipal, a critical step in many projects is land grading. If you need to complete this job before you can tackle the next phases of your project, it is worth taking some time to learn about ethical and environmental land grading. What is it - and why is it important to consider as you plan for the future of your property?

Owning land in beautiful western North Carolina is a dream come true for many people. Not only is this a stunning area with sweeping mile-high vistas and thriving nearby cities, like Asheville, but it is also an excellent investment. Land here is increasingly valuable - and it can become even more so if you undertake land clearing projects. Ethical, environmentally-sound clearing helps you utilize your land in the most effective way possible while significantly improving your landscape. But what do you do with the wood that is left behind? 

When should you start land grading projects? No time like the present! Spring and summer offer optimal conditions - and time afterward to build, plant, seed, sow, and utilize your property to its optimal potential. Land grading offers a number of benefits, and we are here to help you realize each of them in order to accomplish your specific goals. 

Uncleared land is full of fire hazards. It can pose a risk for your home and surrounding land and properties. In certain cases, it can even pose a legal risk in the event of a fire. It's important to have overgrowth, dead trees, and other potential fuel sources removed. A fire spreads where there's fuel to consume, and cleared land significantly reduces fire’s “food source,” if you will.
