    yeah, if your trees are no larger than that, you can do it with a good "bush hog" from any manufacturer. It won't have to be a super heavy duty beast. A medium duty will probably do fine.

    A field that thick with tall, thick grass and small trees may be easier to clear with a good burn. Use a dozer to section off safe areas and pick a good windless day for the burns. A burn would be very beneficial in getting the more natural vegetation to come back. Just a thought.

    We try to rotate burns on one of our farms at three year intervals and it really works well. We also do bush hogging, but a burn really gets rid of a lot of stuff and greens things up. We rotate sections to give wildlife cover during the time it takes to regrow.
