A few years ago, when I was leading workshops for Texas Home and Garden, I was introduced to EZKut hand clippers.
I was given the opportunity to test a pair on an actual branch which left me impressed. With little effort that cut was fast, so the clippers came home with me.
The best part was they fit my hand perfectly without slipping.
Several years later I still have that same pair of clippers and when we started clearing at Quail Grove they became a daily companion.
Needless to say, my EZKut clippers have seen better days, but they still work great and allow me to clear a space quickly.
A lot of Clearing
Initially there was a lot of clearing that needed our attention. There’s still a lot to accomplish and this is how thick the brush looked when we began.
This is actually on the other side of our fence line but our field was just as thick in the beginning. We basically started clearing at the side of the road and worked our way in.
A lot of that brush was cut with my EZKut hand clippers. We also used machetes and a chain saw but it was those clippers that allowed us to clear fast and make that first walk path to an actual open space.

My EZKUT Tools
It wasn’t until recently that I decided it was time for a new clearing tool. Something that could help take down small stumps and trees.
I’ve been removing underbrush on the property we live on so Robert can come through with a chain saw and drop trees at a faster pace.
New tool shopping led me back to EZKut because I had this feeling, they would have what I was seeking. After clicking around their website, I was right and discovered the “Wow Saw” and placed my order immediately.
When it arrived, I was shocked how light it was then headed to the field to give it a try.
The blade was also impressive and within 15 minutes I cut down 4 small stumps and 3 trees. My response at that moment, you guessed it “WOW!”
So, I had Robert video so you could see these tools in action.
I have great news – if you’re interested in trying these tools EZKut has offered my readers an online discount.

It’s exciting to see this area slowly transform into workable land. Right now, it’s just a fun place to clean up and continue burning the debris.
Eventually this will be green for raising small livestock like a few sheep or goats. This could even be a neat space for an orchard.
Clearing land is a matter of taking one area and working your way through the cutting process one branch and tree at a time. I actually really enjoy this activity because it’s peaceful and offers the opportunity to achieve some homestead goals.
Here’s a larger view where I’ve been working and it’s coming along pretty good. Robert will have no problem dropping trees once things dry up.
Things I’ve learned about clearing land, it takes time and a good work ethic goes a long way. Cutting limbs and trees is also faster when they’re dry. It rained the day prior so I won’t be clearing again for another week.
But you can see we’re making progress. it’s slow due to the weather but eventually it will get done. We’re still excited about this Tiny Homestead Community, we just wish it would stop raining so we could get that first property finished.
If you’re looking to clear land fast, I highly recommend checking out those EZKut tools – the “Lopper” is next on my list to purchase, I can hardly wait to try it out.
