Don't overlook sheep.  They can do a really nice job around young trees.
They'll graze competing vegetation short enough that it weakens the roots.

The last place I owned I cleared 40 acres by hand and never broke a sweat.
I did it all with goats and pigs.  I even made a profit on the pigs and
about broke even on the goats.
