When it comes to bushfire safety, implementing or maintaining low fuel loads can make all the difference. Mulching is one of the most effective and efficient ways to reduce vegetation for bushfire mitigation purposes.
Whilst mitigating the risk, mulching is eco-friendly as it leaves a coarse mulch on top of the ground that reduces initial regrowth, minimises erosion, and returns nutrient-rich organic matter back to the topsoil.
This mulching process also minimise damage to the remaining trees by protecting the exposure of the feeder roots that may result in traditional clearing methods; the subsequent layer of mulch will naturally decompose, retuning nutrition to the soil.
