what is the best way to clear brush under trees?
In a month I will be moving into a new house that backs up to a tree line. The trees are covered in vines and a heavy underbrush (20 feet deep). I don't see any poison ivy, but lots of thorns (and ticks). I am not experienced at this, but I would like to clear the brush and plant some native plants and shrubs. Should I...kill the brush with a spray, pull it out, use a chipper to make a manageable size, and spread on the ground to decompose? Please help!
