First off, if you're considering hiring a company to clear land for you, then choose Specialized Forestry Solutions just to see how they take down a tree. Very cool!! It was all I talked about for days. Anyway, I chose SFS based on price (about 40% lower than any other quotes), but I was also happy with the environmentally friendly aspects of their service. They mulch everything and leave it on site, which is great for your soil and also reduces the need to haul off debris - this saves our landfills and reduces emissions and the use of fuel. The equipment they used on my job was small, which also (presumably) required less fuel. And because they didn't need mega vehicles to haul the equipment, that saved on fuel and emissions as well. The work was done VERY quickly and thoroughly...I couldn't believe how well they were able to clear all of my problematic overgrowth; mulch some large, fallen trees; and grade some uneven parts of my lot while at the same time preserving all of the trees and other flora that I wanted them to. My only complaint was that there was a significant delay because their equipment was down; this delayed the rest of my project. However, in the end I was very pleased that I chose SFS and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to others.
