Kyle, consider buying a grapple (BMG,imo). $3k invested. Rent a mini when you need one.
I took out this oak in small mill log sizes with almost no impact. $130 in 5/8" "shop-grade" plywood roadway, remains in good condition for the next job.
We've already exceeded our average annual rainfall!
You can decide how much impact you have, similar to ripping out versus bombing wood and brush.
We had more impact from boots, saw dust, and scattered mulch by far than the machine, which never touched the lawn. This back lawn was half moss (not rooted like grass, which should bounce back better with the moss raked out. The front lawn is sunny and is curb-appeal type lawn, for lack of a better word.
