The tracts that Buzzcuts clears continue to provide value long after the crews have gone home. That's because these properties can now be maintained with traditional bush hog mowers. Since municipalities and landowners can perform their own cutting and roadside maintenance, this is naturally more cost effective than hiring out the projects.
As the shredded debris decays, it adds nutrients back into the soil, increasing its organic matter and aiding in moisture retention. The extra organic matter helps the grassy areas to grow without the use of fertilizers. Because the woody materials are mulched in place, the technology is less invasive and far less damaging to the ground than dozers and excavators would be. If there are "keeper" trees on site, the tracked mulcher can work around them without harming them or the terrain.
The equipment has also provided lasting value for Jones' business. Although there is very little DOT work in the near future, diversifying has helped Dean Jones to build a stronger company – and enabled Buzzcuts to "live to fight another day."
