Scrub Mulching

Scrub Mulching

Do you need land cleared of difficult to handle plants that can’t be easily cut such as gorse, blackberry, pampus grass, bamboo, kane or similar? If so, let me introduce you to our mulchers!

The best way to describe a scrub-mulcher is to think of it as a giant lawnmower for trees. These machines are different from a chipper which requires pieces to first be manually cut and then feed into the machine. Instead, a mulcher simply drives straight over the tree and smashes it to pieces. Our largest machine can literally mow standing trees up to 25cm in diameter.

This method is by far the quickest and most efficient method of clearing trees and bushes. An added benefit is there is often nothing left to dispose of as the mulch is spread evenly over the cleared area to act as a weed suppressant.

Smaller plants such as gorse are often ripped out of the ground completely, without a stump remaining in-ground. Larger stumps are often mulched flat with the ground and buried under a thin layer of mulch and soil. 

We have a range of mulching machines available. From the hugely powerful skidsteer unit shown in the video, right down to mini-loader mounted ones that can fit through an oversized garden gate.

Talk to us about your project and let us help you find the right solution.


“Fantastic job on two large difficult trees to thin and shape. The 2 workers were very tidy, safe and pleasant. I will certainly use Tree King in the future.”

“…. I can not speak highly enough of the professionalism and efficiency of the crew. The tree work was not straight forward, however it was clear from the outset that the crew had taken the time to think through the logistics and details of the job…..”

“Fast workers – scheduled within a week of contact at my convenience. I liked how professional and automated the acceptance of the contract and invoicing was. All within a single email. Also attention paid to how much I wanted my trees trimmed. And although three trees were stumped – cleaned up well after themselves. They did such a good job, I won’t be needing them for a couple of years. But when I do – I know who to come back to!”

“We have been working with Tree King for the last five years.  During this time we have found them efficient, co-operative and very safety conscience during any tree removal.  They are polite and professional to deal with.  We thoroughly recommend Tree King and its staff for a great job well done.”
