    The difference here is power lines above or gas lines below so burning is out, digging is out etc. Wet lands are protected, lots of regulations.

    The power companies want as little disturbance as possible and the conservationist or DEC want the same so this looks to be the best policy.

    What you do in your state amazes me, we cant have a camp fire to cook hot dogs with out the fire Dept showing up, and we get a ton of rain every year.

    Yeah I understand that it can't be cleared for those reasons. I was talking about more of private jobs where you can clear and burn/ haul off its just way faster.

    yeah I like having my house size "camp fires" I think I just like to burn stuff :drinkup:

    Ha Chris, nothing like a good fire to warm up your day huh? ;-)

    Like JMACD said, fire on any job is a big no-no up here. That's why you see guys with grinders, mulchers, and other land clearing stuff running around to process wood. Stuff still has to be cleared, but it has to be done all by mechanical means. On private jobs, our bigger excavator will clear anywhere from 1-4 acres a day, depending on the size of the wood and the terrain. In small brush like what is on a ROW, I would expect to see about 2.5-3 acres a day of production.

    do you ever charge per acre? if not i assume your figuring 2-3hrs an acre then correct. sorry i can't figure out how to pm on here, or do you just use public messaging?

    Yes, we charge per acre on some projects. How we figure out the per acre pricing depends on the size of the vegetation and the terrain present.

    Here are a few more clearing pics that were taken when we cleared an old railroad ROW. Any excavator larger than the 50 wouldn't have made it down the tracks so the 50D worked out very well for this project.

    A little brushy going in. Cutting back the road:

    Ya, we try to have some fun these days Krazy!

    Here are some pics from another clearing job we did for an environmental company recently. We had to cut a road in through the woods and then clear about a half acre of heavily wooded terrain. Oh ya, the hill was fun too as that had to be all hand cut. We had the T320, 50D, and grinder out on this job.

    Cutting the access road in:
