Brush Hogging: What Is It?
Brush hogging is sometimes called bush hogging, tractor mowing, rotary cutting, brush clearing, or heavy-duty mowing, and is a form of clearing light brush up to 1” in diameter. It protects the surface of the land by cutting back overgrown grass, trees, and vegetation to promote a flourishing environment as well as nourish existing soil.
Brush hogging is the most common form of clearing undergrowth, small trees, and shrubs from a property. The cleared land may be used for hunting, farming, pasture, Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) maintenance, and land development as well as a variety of other uses.
It is primarily performed with a tractor, but for steep embankments, pond dams, ditches, and narrow pathways this work is best performed using a brush hog attachment on a skid steer.
Safety is always a concern where brush clearing is involved. It is always important that people and animals are well outside any projectile range as debris can travel at high rates of speed in all directions.
Brush hogging is most effective when the property is level, dry, and clear of debris and obstructions. Tallgrass Land Management provides brush clearing services in Missouri as well as Kansas, Nebraska, and Iowa for both residential and commercial property owners.
