What is Land Clearing?

Let’s start with the basics.

Land clearing is simply removing vegetation, rocks, and obstacles from a parcel of land to increase the usable space or tidy-up debris.

You may decide to clear for several reasons:

For farmers, land clearing can be used to cultivate the land for crops, make room for livestock or reduce fuel in case of a bushfire. In commercial developments space may be needed for new infrastructures, such as roads, drainage, and buildings. And for the homeowner, land clearing may be about making a previously unusable area more functional.

Australia is known for its drought and flooding rains, so preparing for and cleaning up after wild weather and natural disasters is another common reason to clear.

An important part of bushfire management, reducing fuel loads and clearing physical barriers between vegetated land and community infrastructure helps stop the spread of fire by creating defensible fire breaks.

Last but certainly not least, clearing along the country’s thousands of kilometre of highway allows traffic to pass roadside trees and vegetation safely and prevent accidents by improving visibility.

Environmental impact and restrictions of land clearing

When managed poorly, land clearing can have a drastic impact on the native environment, leading to salinity, climate change and reduced biodiversity.

For this reason, certain types of land are protected, and cannot be cleared without a land clearing permit and/or an environmental impact assessment.

Regulations differ in each state and territory, there may also be local restrictions you need to consider before clearing your land.

We recommend getting in touch with your local planning office to discuss your clearing needs before starting work. Hiring a professional can make this step much more bearable and help with government jargon and red tape.

Can I clear my land myself?

Land clearing is not for the faint of heart but it can be done with the right equipment.

Depending on your needs and your land, clearing can involve a wide range of tasks including clearing brush, cutting down and hauling away large trees, digging up rocks, filling in large holes with dirt, smoothing furrows and hills, removing shrubs and small trees, and burning, grinding, or otherwise removing the leftover stumps. In order to accomplish all of these tasks with the minimal hassle, you will need specialised equipment.
