What happens to the brush generated from a lot clearing or tree thinning project makes a difference. In some cases, a few branches can be efficiently hauled off of a bermed landscape after a hazard tree removal, and in other cases, a great deal of brush may be generated from a larger fuel wood reduction project for example. Trees R Us owns the equipment and has the trained operators to reduce bulky fire-prone and unsightly brush into compact wood chips. Chips can be removed by truck or broadcast on-site, depending on the project.
In all cases, it is a consideration and a trade-off between the benefits and consequences of brush pile burning. More and more it is becoming common practice to avoid burning brush piles when and where feasible, to reduce the amount of smoke in the atmosphere, reduce fire risks and recover byproduct.
