What is Bush Hogging?

Bush hogging, also known as “brush hogging,” is a type of brush clearing service that uses heavy equipment to remove undergrowth, saplings, and other small trees from an area. It is often used in rural areas to clear land for farming or grazing livestock. Bush hog services can also be used for forestry purposes, power line maintenance, and more.

Nowadays, we mostly see bush hog services requested to maintain large tracts of land such as pastures, ranches, and public lands along roadways. Bush hogging leaves grass and brush with a rough-cut finish at about 6 inches high. We typically leave the cut grass/hay behind, which can be aesthetically pleasing and also great for animals out to pasture.

How it Works

Our bush hogging services are performed by certified and experienced professionals. We will come to your property and assess the area that needs to be cleared. Once we have a plan of action, our team will get to work quickly and efficiently to clear the area of all brush. We always take care to protect any trees or other vegetation that you do not want to have removed.

Who needs bush hogging services?

Anyone who has an overgrown area on their property can benefit from our bush hog services! This includes farmers, ranchers, landowners, businesses, homeowners, and more. If you have an area of your property that is difficult to access or maintain because of overgrowth, we can help!

We also offer bush hogging maintenance service. This is great for commercial properties or lots, roadsides, as well as large residential properties with two or more acres of land that need regular servicing to maintain a cleaner, safer finish. Maybe your property has become overgrown due to lack of maintenance, or you just bought a property you’re looking to revive. Either way, bush hogging is the perfect solution.

Although some folks choose to brush hog their own properties, many find that hiring a service is much more convenient, safe, and efficient. No need to take the risk of coming across snakes or other risks in the high brush!

At Southern Brush we use only the best equipment for our bush hog services. This includes heavy-duty brush cutters and bush hog tractor attachments that can handle any type of vegetation. Our team is also trained in using this equipment safely and efficiently.

Unlike ride-on mowers, bush hogging equipment allows for a better turn radius and a much broader coverage. Whereas a ride-on mower might have a 48-inch deck, our tractor bush hogs have a 6 or 7-foot deck. This way, we get the job done quicker and more efficiently than you could on your own or with a residential lawn service.

Is bush hogging a DIY job?

What time of year should you bush hog?

Most property owners opt to bush hog during the middle to the late weeks of summer as weeds begin to appear in pastures and fields.
