Why use wood chippers?

Environmental concerns and economic benefits all play a part when deciding on the method to be used when disposing of green waste – be that Alien plants, orchards or municipal green waste.
Past practices such as burning and dumping are falling by the wayside – heres why.


In the not too distant past, the norm in South Africa was to either burn or dump green waste. These methods are fine when there are no opportunity costs related to them. Transport and fuel was cheap, fire prevention regulations lax and the value of mulch or chips were not appreciated.

Our modern society brings various difficulties to the fore:
– Roads are heavily congested
– The price of fuel has increased enormously
– Restrictions on burning and associated risks are on the increase

The value of mulch and compost is becoming clear


Whatever you industry, the key question should always be : What is the most cost effective solution to my problem and is there hidden value in the waste product?

Construction & Civils
Site clearing is a huge and expensive problem. Bulldozing an entire site creates a large stockpile of worthless plant material that needs to be carted away. The soil is then exposed to the elements which causes erosion and dust issues.

Pruning and replacing orchards and vineyards are essential for effective farming. By chipping or mulching these, an effective protective layer can be introduced to existing and new plantings to restrict weed growth and keeping moisture in the soil. Working it into the soil also introduces organic material that decomposes over time.

These facilities sit with enormous stockpiles of cutoff planks and timber. Chipping can provide boiler fuel, animal bedding and more.


The benefits of using wood chippers are obvious…
In a modern society, the most efficient, greenest, most socially acceptable processes should be your prime concern.
Give wood chipping a try – you’ll be pleasantly surprised.


Our Bobcat SG60 Stumpgrinder removes tree stumps quickly and efficiently. This attachment allows us to grind any tree stumps down up to 250mm below ground level. The mulch can then be used as compost in the garden, ground cover or a fantastic alternative to walkway and driveway gravel. Once we have removed a stump, it leaves a new space for grass, plants or paving.

Since we utilise this attachment (one of the largest in the country), removing large diameter stumps from gardens, public walkways, farms and golf courses is an effortless process. Due to the large size and nature of the equipment, it is more economical to have a sufficient quantity of work to make it worthwhile.

As an indication, we ground approximately 150 Bluegum Stumps (2meter average Diameter) in 11 days at our site in Robertson.

For smaller jobs, our new Tomcat hand operated grinder is just the right too

l for the job. It can fit through normal garden gates for easy access and handles small to medium stumps with ease.

Our service vehicles contain all the necessary equipment needed to remove a tree stump and our operators are trained to work, taking all the needed safety precautions.
