Brush Clearing Terminology


Weed Abatement……  undesired plants made less in quantity or intensity. The intended goal for brush clearing operations. Intended goal for Oregon Brush Clearing operations
Accuracy ……without error; precise; exact.
Brush Clearing Algorithm…… a step-by-step problem solving procedure using  a finite number of steps to obliterate brush and vegetation.

Brush ……a growth of small trees and shrubs; thicket. Under 3.5 inches

Collision Mechanics –  sudden, forceful coming together in direct contact
of two bodies. Primary mechanical method for effective brush clearing

Cut…..–v.  to to fell or hew; to penetrate like a knife.
Decomposition(mechanical)…..separation into constituent parts; to decay.

WOW!!!…Nothing was Hauled away!

Landscape Demolition…..  the act of tearing down brush; destroying overgrown brush utterly into orderly aesthetic.
Entropy ……..the irreversible tendency of a system toward increasing disorder; also the final state predictable from this.Jungles into Golf Greens




Landscape Excavation……removal by digging or scooping out, as soil.
Extreme Brush ….. exceedingly great or severe overgrowth; going far beyond the normal bounds of landscape moderation.

Evapotranspiration (ET) is a brush clearing term used to describe the sum of evaporation and plant transpiration from the Earth’s land surface to atmosphere.

Extreme Brush Clearing….( transitive verb )Etymology: Latin oblitteratus, past participle of oblitterare.Date: 1600ad……mechanically induced decomposition of all vegetation rapidly and with decisive force.All actions pertaining to Vegetative Molecular Entropy caused by hypervelosity collisions. To remove vegetation utterly from recognition or memory. destroy utterly all trace, indication, or significance of. Common name: Bush whackin, Brush Cuttin,Mastication,Landscape Demolition.

Integrity –n.uprightness of character; honesty.

Law of conservation of energy ……energy can neither be created nor destroyed but can change its form; the total
quantity of matter and energy available in the universe is a fixed amount and never any more or less



Brush Clearing Methodology…….the principles and practices of orderly thought or
procedure regarding brush obliteration processes.

Brush Mitigation……  overgrown vegetation made milder or less severe.
Brush Mow……..cut down with a scythe or machine.
Brush Obliteration………… utter destruction of weeds and vegetation.
Precision…..the state or quality of being precise; accuracy; designed for extremely accurate measurement.




Brush Clearing Professional…..pertaining to an occupation that involves a liberal, scientific or artistic education and  expert in a “field”. (Or severely overgrown lawn)

Reliable …….  worthy of confidence.

Oblivion: the fact or condition of forgetting or having forgotten;
: the condition or state of being forgotten or unknown.


Wildland Brush Remediation………. the act or process of correcting a fault or deficiency of order in natural vegetative habitats. Act of Obliterating invasive plant and restoring natural balance.

Wildland Restoration………. the reconstruction or repair to a former place or condition. Restricting the advancing spread of invasive plants along with combustible ladder fuels.

Habitat Revitalization………  to impart new life or vigor to natural plant settings.

Shrub.…….. a woody perennial plant of low stature,having stems and branches springing from the base. a large obnoxious weed

Skill ……. proficiency or ability in any task; a developed art, trade or technique.


Steep Muddy Slope; rain saturated terrain gradient that angles to about 45 degree or 50%

Tree ………a perennial woody plant having usually a single self-supporting trunk of considerable height, with
branches and foliage growing at some distance above the ground.  a very large weed


Trim ………make neat by clipping; reduce by cutting.

Wildland Vegetation………. plant life in the aggregate, natural plant communities.(weeds)

A degree is a level; it derives from the Latin word for a step.

Umpteen is one of a number of number-words which do not mean a particular number, but mean “a lot”. Another similar word is gazillion. But whereas gazillion implies that there are so many you cannot count them, umpteen suggests that there are a lot, but they are countable (they are in the range between ten and twenty).


Vertical slope …….  extending up and down slant or incline.





Noxious Weed.………any common, unsightly or troublesome plant that grows in abundance.  Himalayan Blackberry and Scotch Broom in Oregon.

 Defensible space: An area around a structure cleared of vegetation and flammable materials to slow the advance of wildfire.

Fuel breaks: A strip of land where vegetation and debris have been removed to prevent fire from crossing it.

Type conversion: The process by which a nonnative species replaces a native one, either by destroying or replacing it.

–Vegetative Centrifugation
–Mechanically Induced Vegetative Molecular Entropy Systems
–Supreme Bio-Mass Reduction

 Brush Clearing Facts:

What happens to all the brush? Clearly as seen in Exhibit A,B,C,D & E the Brush is…
–Recycled into microelements and returned to the Earth.
–Mechanically induced into a decomposition state.(Broken down into fragments)
–Processed , Reduced, Fragmented into Oblivion
–Shattered and scattered into a linear horizontal vegetative distribution layer…as seen in the before and after pictures.

What tools are used?
–Efficiency ,Skill, Agility, Intelligence, Experience, Integrity, Strength, Passion. The Emergent Properties of these components are in fact the most important tools that have been employed. The sum is greater then its parts.
