Land clearing can prepare lots for construction or replanting
And it can wipe out invasive species such as Eastern Red Cedar AKA Native Cedar, so that the soil can regenerate and native species have the water and nutrients they need. We use direct tree grinding because it is economical and it creates a ground cover that nourishes the soil and looks better than bare earth.
Direct tree grinding is earth-friendly recycling. Rather than sawing trees into pieces and hauling it all away – or piling it up for graders to deal with – you get direct mulching that keeps waste wood out of landfills and keeps nutrients in the soil for the benefit of remaining trees and any future landscaping.
• South Texas brush, growth and trees—including unwelcome species such as our cedars – can be efficiently and affordably removed with our land clearing services. Stumps and roots will be ground 6 to 12 inches below soil and filled with chips. Your property is left in much healthier condition than when we began.
Of course, tall trees are first felled to the level at which direct grinding can ensue. We utilize our heavy equipment such as a crane truck, as well as our seasoned tree climbers, for bringing down tall growth. If you have chosen some trees to remain on your lot, you will receive careful, selective land clearing around your valuable trees.
We offer expert dead limb removal from living trees, which is called “dead-wooding”. The technique increases the amount of light and air to the tree, reduces the risk of pests and disease, and improves the overall health and beauty of the tree. Our goal is to leave the trees you want to keep in healthier condition. All of this is planned by our certified arborists, who are dedicated to the health of trees.
We understand that the cedar problem can get out of control, and the temptation is to do land clearing yourself using untrained workers. Burning is very dangerous in our climate, because it can spread out of control and threaten nearby growth and structures, and can be against the law in some counties. Pulling out stumps with a truck or backhoe is dangerous. Even if you are successful, your land has lumps and the buried remnants can grow again. Professional direct grinding is the safest, most efficient way to get land ready without lumps or depressions on your lot.
Land clearing is the best commercial option. If you are selling your property, “Ready to build” and “Will clear to suit” can bring top dollar. Don’t settle for having the slash and stumps pushed into a pile and left there. It takes years to rot, and is not attractive to buyers. Our crews prepare the way for other professionals to prepare the site. You need us to do our job quickly so that other construction trades can do theirs.
If you are wondering if you should deal with your cedars, consider that they prevent other native species from growing. Cedars increase salt in the soil; consume the available water; increase wildfires, and deplete soil to the extent that it can increase the intensity of flooding. Choose us for your residential, commercial or government projects. Our crews are licensed and insured. When you need it flat, we are the land clearing contractors you need.
