-Flax Removal

Although beautiful, New Zealand flax can quickly become out of control. Removing flax bushes can be difficult and expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing.

ArborPro has a very effective method of pulling flax bushes out in large clumps using a special attachment on our BOXER 950HD mini skid steer.  This machine will fit through a gap of 1100mm and has the power to clear large areas of flax extremely efficiently. 

Because the plants are being teared out of the ground rather than dug out the amount of dirt that comes with them is limited. This minimises disposal and transport costs and eliminates the need to bring in replacement topsoil.  This is by far the quickest, tidiest and most cost effective method of large scale flax bush removal.

We clear large areas with literally hundreds of flax, Grasses and toi tois etc.

-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 or similar?

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. 

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.
