what do you pay a yard/ton to tip brush?
15-20 loads per lot? That's some wooded lots. I go to Rowlands to dump my stuff but is it worth the ride to go to Shotwell or Currin's?
Or find someone with a tub grinder, to turn it into mulch. Or someone to grind it into fuel pellets.
You would need a whole lot more than just a few lots to justify a tub grinder. I did an aerial view of the 3 landfills listed a few posts ago.. all 3 had a grinder onsite to process the tree debris.
we pay around 75 for a quad load to dump brush. we have a local dump near the house we can access 24/7 so its the convenience factor that means a lot.
you could never chip the stumps, some are so big we can only get 3 on a 25' tag trailer. that and you have so much dirt, roots and crap as well. Most of the dumps do have grinders for the clean wood that comes in, but about half of the ones we go to just push it over the edge of the pile and cover it up with dirt.
we salvage all the saw logs and pulp wood so that does offset some costs
Shearing the stumps gets them down to size and gets a lot of the dirt out so they can be dropped in a grinder and produce a "clean" product.
so its been a very busy busy year. lots of projects lined up for this year as well.
