Cedar Eaters® employees are some of the best in the industry and many have been with the Company for numerous years. This statement holds true to not only our equipment operators but also our hand crew members. There is a mutual respect for what each member of the Cedar Eater® team does and this plays a vital role in delivering a top quality service every time. As a small, family-owned business, we put tremendous value on the customer experience. From the initial contact all the way through the project's completion, we want our customers to feel understood and taken care of by our Team. Our job supervisors are land restoration experts who walk the properties with landowners to develop an agreed "game plan" to tackle their clearing needs. This is done during our free estimate process.

Cedar Eaters® is the Texas expert in cedar and brush clearing. Our Cedar Eater® mulching machine can obliterate standing vegetation quickly and with minimal soil disturbance, leaving a layer of beneficial mulch behind. The "Mulching Method" promotes healthy habitat recovery in multiple ways: Mulch helps prevent erosion of the soil, seals in moisture and helps desirable trees (like oaks) get the water they need to flourish. When left uncleared, cedar can infest an area and choke out local plantlife and native grasses. Cedar encroachment also contributes to drought conditions. One cedar tree consumes about 33 gallons of water per day. Cedar EaterS® clients find that clearing cedar on their property will actually increase the level of water in their streams and creeks. Their pastures will team with native grasses again. Wildlife and cattle will enjoy the restored ecosystem and thrive. Be a good steward of your land and clear the environmentally-friendly way--with the Cedar Eater®!
Cedar Eaters® of Texas has worked with the full spectrum of clients from around the State. We have done clearing for thousands of ranchers and private landowners as well as large residential developers--clearing everything from small, individual lots to entire communities. We have worked with both small and large contractors clearing for commercial developments or clearing pipelines and right-of-ways (ROW). We have done projects with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department clearing at wildlife management areas around the State. We have done projects for various military installations in Texas including Lackland Air Force Base, Camp Stanley, Camp Swift, Camp Mabry and even McAlester Army Ammunitions Plant in Oklahoma. We recently cleared an 82-mile pipeline for Primoris Pipeline (formerly Sprint) using 3 of our mulching machines simultaneously. We have worked in combination with Texas A&M AgriLife Research carefully clearing over 1,700 acres of golden cheek warbler habitat at Camp Bullis over a span of 5 years. Our experience is unmatched by the competition. We hope you will put your trust in us for your next clearing project.
With our mesquite grubbing services, we can turn a mesquite wasteland into productive grassland by "grubbing" your unwanted vegetation out by the root. We do this with two types of grubbing attachments, depending on the size of the vegetation.
Cedar Eaters® has a large excavator with a specially-patented grubbing attachment and retractable thumb for those with a large mesquite problem. If you have a small mesquite problem, we will attack it with a skid loader with ROOT-N-ALL® patented grubbing attachment. Both methods are minimally invasive and are quickly becoming the ideal way to get rid of your unwanted perennial vegetation. Avoid root-plowing and chemical application and go the environmentally-friendly route.
Our Hand Crew guys are the true work horses of the business. When they aren’t working alongside one of our mulching machines, they can often be found on one of Cedar Eaters' smaller chipper jobs. They can perform a variety of activities from cutting underbrush to promote a healthy bird habitat to hand-grubbing cactus to regain old pastureland. Best of all, Cedar Eaters® hand crew guys are all company employees. So feel confident that every aspect of the job performed is from an experienced professional member of the Cedar Eaters® team.

The Cedar Eaters® 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.
