Land clearing is the process of removing vegetation and objects from land in order to make it usable for a defined purpose.
Land clearing and recultivation
Land clearing and recultivation affect many industries from agriculture to construction to transportation. It can also be done in the context of environmental protection, such as the removal of invasive species or ecosystem restoration. Often times mulchers or rotavators are used which leave the shredded biomass in or on the soil, further improving soil fertility.
