Environmentally Friendly Land Clearing

Outdated land clearing operations are becoming practices of the past. Newer and more desirable methods have come along and are quickly winning favor. Separate factors are responsible for these changes.

Number one, the dated traditional practices rips and scars the land, disturbing topsoil and causing injury to surrounding timber. For the property owner this causes huge refuse piles which demands greater cash outlay if they choose to dispose of these piles. Due to landfill (tipping) expenses skyrocketing and the escalating expense of fuel directly drives the cost.

Secondly burn restrictions, environmental methods and furthermore control over injury to the landscape comes into play. The final yield is exceedingly more desirable and cost effective with these up to date processes.

When these two procedures are reviewed environmentally friendly land clearing has an obvious desired result over the previous traditional methods. Underbrush and small saplings are ground up, which deposits all the nutrients afterwards to restore the soil. In addition the root system is left in place which aides in the control of erosion. This method is so beneficial that it is preferred in various applications where the old orthodox style is illegal, such as nearby current water sources. Outdated procedures are required to allow a pre-defined cushion between where they clear and the water source. However the mulch land clearing process has no such limitation and can clear right to the boundary of these water sources.

Taking all these considerations into consideration mulch land clearing has a huge benefit over bulldozing and burning or hauling the rubbish to the landfill. With the more modern mulch land clearing process, burning, hauling to the landfill, reduction of forest fire fuels and scaring the countryside are all almost eliminated. All this considerably drops the cost of land clearing.

Landowner bewares because on the first impression each strategy would seem to price about the same. Once you explore further into it you determine that there are hidden outlays associated with the antiquated traditional technique.

Recently there have been multiple counties that have had forest fires during periods of draught. Plantation owners such as Government, land Organizations and individuals would benefit substantially from the minimization of fuels such as underbrush. This would weaken the likelihood of fire and in numerous situations altogether discontinue the expansion of fire. The new clearing methods can curtail underbrush fuel to mulch, which in turn diminishes the menace of fire. » Read more: Property Development Land Clearing Choices

Great Things Come From Small Packages

Everyone has to start from something small. In the Tax Delinquent Investment Business, it would be wise to start out small during the beginning.

On purchasing tax delinquent properties you’ve decided to focus more on lower dollar value properties. This is great since, the lower the value of the property the lower it’s back taxes are, and adding up both won’t get you off your budget.

Usually the Assessed value is a percent of the actual market value of the property. If they say that the assessed value is 5% of the actual property and that 5% is at $500 then the estimated property value would be $10,000. Basically you would want to focus on delinquent properties that are assessed at perhaps $50 to $500. Eliminate the higher dollar values because chances are all of those are going to get redeemed and that’s not what you’re looking for. Remember you’re on a budget and its best to stick to it.

After eliminating properties with high and very low assessed values, next thing to do is to get the addresses of all the property owners that are on that list. You would want to know if the owner lives in state or out of state. If the owner lives nearby chances are they’re not that willing to give up the property soon but are just waiting out for the right deal, which is high as they would hope. But if they leave out of state, most likely they show little interest on the property and are willing to give it up.

Sometimes counties send letters to property owners who weren’t able to pay their property taxes and if they send it out to a bad address or the owner doesn’t respond to such letters, the county put a mark on these properties. You can ask the county for that list if they have one.

Out of state owners are those you have to put your eye on because they are the ones who are more than willing to let their properties go. The sooner they want to get rid off their properties the cheaper the deal you’ll be getting. Most of all, you get to stick to your goal and budget. » Read more: Great Things Come From Small Packages
