There are countless reasons that you may want to clear some land. Perhaps you’ve moved into a property and want to clear the land out back, ready to create a garden that will boost property value when you sell and move on.

Here’s some information on whether clearing land can increase your property’s value in particular.
What Is Land Clearing?
Land clearing is the process of clearing vegetation from a selected plot of land. It will generally involve removing trees, stumps, brush, stones and other obstacles from the area and is commonly carried out by individuals specializing in residential construction, commercial construction, institutional construction, agriculture, roads, mining and more. Whatever your reason for clearing the land, it’s important to make sure that it’s a logical and financially sound decision.
Does Clearing Land Add Property Value?
Of course, if you’re purchasing woodland and planning to sell it on as woodland, there’s not much point in clearing the land. But if you want to sell the land to property and project developers, clearing the land can significantly increase the space’s value. This is for a number of reasons. The key two are:
- Accessibility – cleared land is more accessible land. It will allow people to access it and view it much more easily. Some people may be put off buying land that they can’t easily get to or through. Cleared land is also more accessible in terms of installing plumbing, electricity lines and more, making the land more desirable to people planning on building a home or commercial premises.
- Ease – put yourself in a property developer’s shoes. Would you rather purchase land and be able to start work immediately? Or would you rather pay more for the land to be completely clear and ready to work with? Time is money and you’re going to get a significantly higher offer for land that the buyer can use for their own purposes quickly and easily.
