VT Land Maintenance Projects

+ Projects

Forestry Mulching Projects


An out-of-state landowner with a small camp hired Vermont Land Maintenance to clear 3 acres that had been logged years prior. The land owner and family would come up and try and tackle the clearing by hand, but could never get caught up” In 2020 we did the initial clearing, and in 2021 came back for another cut. Steep and rocky, this area will never be able to be mowed with a conventional tractor and brush hog. We used our small excavator with Brontosaurus mulching head for the first year and a 42” flail mower the second year.


BTV Brush Mowing

Working a steep slope at the Burlington International Airport.

Land Maintenance

This landowner had a section of their yard that had overgrown and they needed help getting back under control. The original project was done in 2017. We came back for some other work in 2021 and took a couple more pictures of the original project.


New home owners wanted their property brought back to the property line, and turned back in to grass that could be easily maintained.

Hinesburg Project

Trim trees and shrubs overgrowth by the driveway, working around a barbed-wire fence. Cleared trail section to hunt grounds and trimmed apple trees competing with other vegetation.

Colchester Project

Cleared 1 3/4 acres of small poplar, birch, and pine saplings ranging from 1/4" - 3" to over 12' tall

Richmond Hill Side Project

About a 1/3 an acre of hillside that leveled off, but had been subject to the wind storm of December 2010. Sumac trees and other saplings had grown up, you could hardly walk through it. We were able to efficiently move about with the excavator, and mulch everything in place.

Charlotte Buckthorn Infestation

The owner of this property hired us to remove a well-established area of buckthorn so that he could more easily take down the larger dead elm trees. You could hardly walk in here, say nothing about trying to cut a large tree down.


Vermont Land Maintenance completed a project for the local airport for the fall of 2015. All the strobe towers were overgrown and thick with brush. The last time this area had attention was well over 12 years ago. At that time the area was cut by hand with the maintenance crew from the airport, over the length of a summer. This time it was completed with one machine, an operator, and about a week's worth of work.

Pine Shore Road

Vermont Land Maintenance helped these folks out with a ROW (right of way) across their property. The area electrical company came through and cut trees and brush and left them in piles. The owners of the land could not walk through their property without climbing over log piles and walking through thick brush. The electric company would not help them out, so they turned to us.

South Burlington

Vermont Land Maintenance was hired by three families in a townhouse association, to assist in pushing back several invasive species. Including Buckthorn, Multiflora Rose, and Honeysuckle. This was the thickest we have seen yet. I believe the local bunny rabbits had a hard time getting through.

St George Clearing

Vermont Land Maintenance was hired to clear an area of just over .30 acres that had overgrown and got out of control over the last 10 years. We found an old stone wall and a large piece of ledge that is now exposed again. This was phase 1, we will be back soon for phase 2 and transform this area into a nice grass field.

Hunting Area

We were hired by a landowner in southern Vermont to help tame his family's hunting grounds. The area was logged 10 years prior and it grew back very thick. We used the Terex PT110F with a Loftness 61” Battle Ax Forestry cutting head to attack this project.

Road Side

Vermont Land Maintenance is hired every year by a local road association to keep the sides of their road maintained.
