We acquired some neighbouring land that was covered with dense areas of gorse as well as patches of blackberry. We had assistance from the local NRM board who have helped with putting in place a programme of burning & spraying, but there were some areas where we needed to make an immediate impact.
I contacted Brett from Clearpath and we arranged a site inspection. It was clear from the start that he had many years of experience & knowledge of vegetation & land management which gave me confidence that this was the right option.
Through the use of his skid-steer loader with the mulching head, Brett was able to mulch large sections of gorse in a relatively short time frame. The impact was instant! It opened up land that had been completely inaccessible and made the job of managing the weeds much easier.
Brett was also able to be selective with the mulching and was able to avoid native trees that may not have survived had we burnt the area.
I highly recommend Clearpath Vegetation. They have transformed a large part of our property from dense gorse to cleared productive paddocks.
To treat fuels and reduce bushfire risk, a range of tools are required depending on the terrain and vegetation structure. The Clearpath loader has proved a useful tool to support strategic fuel reduction works across public and private land in South Australia and assist in preparing prescribed burn sites.
This work has involved clearing existing tracks or creating new control lines. Dense woody weed thickets (e.g. gorse/blackberry) have also been mulched by the Clearpath which has enabled burning of this material to be safer and more effective.
The Clearpath loader has also enabled fuels to be reduced where prescribed burning may not be feasible. This has included works directly adjacent to assets or in vegetation that is challenging to burn. By mulching woody weed patches, the Clearpath machine has enabled access and made control efforts (such as spraying) more efficient and less time consuming.
We used Clearpath’s services to mulch some large areas of Gorse and Blackberry. We were very impressed with the amount cleared in one day, and their ability to work on uneven terrain and not damage any of the other natural vegetation that we wanted to retain. Brett was prompt and courteous and we would not hesitate to use his services again.
We had a large area of gorse and blackberry, approximately 300m by 15m running along a slope and a fence line. Brett’s approach was very professional, the job was done efficiently, on time and to a very good standard. We would highly recommend his services to anyone.
Brett was very professional came in with the machine did a fantastic job clearing the gorse bushes away.
