Welcome to Cedar Eaters

Land Clearing ServicesBrush Removal Services

Cedar Eaters of Texas is the industry leader in environmentally-friendly land restoration and services the entire state of Texas. Our team takes great pride in leaving a positive impact on both the land and on each customer we encounter. Owning property is hard work and the biggest adversary when maintaining land is typically brush control. Cedar Eaters of Texas specializes in a multitude of land clearing methods and services that can help landowners with their specific clearing needs.

In Texas, we primarily deal with cedar clearing, mesquite grubbing, and various types of brush and underbrush clearing. Our “Cedar Eater” mulching machines can obliterate standing vegetation quickly and with minimal soil disturbance. The “Mulching Method” leaves behind a layer of beneficial mulch that promotes healthy habitat recovery in multiple ways. Not only does mulch help prevent erosion of the soil but it also seals in moisture, helping desirable trees (like oaks) get the water they need to flourish.

We want to thank you for visiting our site and familiarizing yourself with the types of services we provide, as well as the many benefits that result from the use of our services. If you would like to schedule a free estimate or have questions about our restoration services, please contact us.

Environmentally-Friendly Land Restoration is our Specialty.

Cedar Eaters of Texas strives to use a low-impact clearing approach within all the services that we offer. We understand that land ownership is more than just owning a piece of property.

That’s why it’s important for us to provide you with the most ecologically-progressive techniques known to Texas land clearing.

Cedar Eaters of Texas is a HUB-Certified (Woman-Owned Business) Contractor with the State of Texas. We have successfully completed both large & small land clearing projects for military installations around the San Antonio area. In 2008, we began work on a 5-year project with Joint Base San Antonio-Camp Bullis under contract with Texas A&M Institute of Renewable Natural Resources through a Cooperative Ecosystem Study Unit (CESU) funded by Joint Base San Antonio. During this project, we cleared over 1,700 acres on Camp Bullis and have seen the benefits of our service come to life. For the past decade, we have also sub-contracted work for military installations across the area, including: Lackland Airforce Base, Camp Stanley, and Fort Hood; helping contractors finish their land clearing projects on time and under budget. In 2014, we were sub-contracted to clear training sites at McAlester Army Ammunitions Plant in Oklahoma and are slated to return in 2015.  The Cedar Eater team has worked with numerous municipalities, government entities (like Texas Parks and Wildlife Department), and various contractors on city and state park projects as well as underground and above-ground utility projects.

The Cedar Eater timber mulchers are the best application for clearing burnt or dead vegetation after a devastating wildfire. The mulch left behind adds nourishing organic nutrients back into the ground that has been stripped of all natural nutrients, aiding in a speedy recovery process. We have helped landowners recover from devastating wildfires in Bastrop, TX; Junction, TX; Possum Kingdom, TX and Graham, TX.

Cedar Eaters was also one of the first to respond following the historic flooding in Wimberley, Texas; partnering with a local church to clear flood debris.  Additionally, we have helped multiple private landowners in Wimberley and along the Blanco River, not only clearing debris but creating natural flood barriers to aid in future flood events.
