First of all, you have the obvious hazard of snakes and other dangerous animals to be lurking in wood piles, tree areas, and shrubs. If you do not take proper precautions to make sure that your land is clear prior to starting work this can be a dangerous proposition.

You will need heavy equipment to properly clear large trees, and even heavy shrubs. Without this equipment you are exposing yourself to many hazards, and there are many stories and even videos online of people attempting these projects were not properly trained.
