I know nothing about clearing land but here are some of my observations on the subject.
In 2010 I was in the woods hunting and ran across this type of machine making a road in the pristine forest. When I passed by at around 7 AM in the morning it was a virgin forest and when I came back at around 4 PM a road existed as shown.


They also use this toy to gather the logs and place them in piles

They also have some machines to harvest the logs, remove all the branches, and then other machines come and gather the logs and load them on transport trucks to be driven to the mill.

Maybe one of these could do the job for you in one day or two????

Way back in time when I was a lad, I was a partner a company that did the mechanised lumberjack thing.
It certainly beat hauling around the chainsaw I started with.
Give me diesel power over muscle power any day.

That sort of gear works well, BUT it comes at a price.

Unless they are making tens of thousands of dollars, it's not worth the cost of floating all the machines across and burning the fuel.

And with the limited number of trees they could harvest, it's actually cheaper to send one bull dozer in and then burn the piles then to try to harvest any trees.

I disagree Elvis, while they do do land clearing, Quebec where the original poster is from is a LONG way away from Tennessee where the company is based.

And on their list of projects, the CHEAPEST project listed is worth $900,000.
I think the cost of transporting the equipment alone would exceed the cost of a local contractor to do the entire job, which is the main problem.

Further more, the manner in which the post is written is in that of a bot that doesn't understand the context of the posts and is trying to leave a generic post that kinda blends in so people less tuned into scams may think that it's a genuine post.

If he replies to deny this, I will gladly retract my post. But I'll bet we don't hear from him again.

Just got back from a visit to the homestead had a young fella out there to look at the work I want done. He quoted me $4500 to clear out what I wanted and will also enlarge the 4 shooting lanes and add about 2000 feet to the small pond. I liked the guy and once I get Dee's approval I think he will get the work. Dee and I are going back out tomorrow to mark the trees we want left and the areas we want cleared completely as well as what needs to be graded for the new house, trailer tent whatever. I'll try to remember my camera and get a few before and then some after shots.

Lester, in that scale of changes, you may even take a copy of google earth satellite image of your land before you made the changes.

In a few years or months, Google may re image your land with the new look, but it would be great to have the "before" shot.

Best idea I've heard in a long while thanks gelandangan.

Yeah maybe with a little more depth and area it won't turn into a big mud pit in July. Actually, where he is going to dig out is s small underground spring that is feeding a small pond, this will triple its size almost. No fish but the tracks from the wild life around what's there now indicate the animals will love it.
