Site Preparation

Site preparation utilizes various management techniques to prepare all, or portions of a property, for future management needs.

Site Preparation Methods

Site preparation in Florida can consist of: bedding, chemical applications, clearing, disking, mowing, mulching, prescribed burning, roller chopping, root raking, scalping, sub-soiling and whole tree chipping. Sometimes a timber sale, especially those utilizing a whole tree chipper, can be a form of site preparation.

Site Preparation and Land Management

Once site preparation is complete other management techniques can then be implemented much easier, such as, tree planting, reclamation, restoration, habitat enhancement, and habitat creation with shrubby or herbaceous plant material. Properly preparing a site should be one of the first priorities when trying to establish herbaceous plants, shrubs, or trees. A properly prepared site may ensure the success of future treatments. Typically, site preparation precedes afforestation, reforestation, mitigation, reclamation, and restoration efforts. Sometimes a timber sale, especially those utilizing a whole tree chipper, can be a form of site preparation.
