Hand Crew Cutting and Chipping Services

Professional Hand Crew Cutting and Chipping at Cedar Eaters

Our hand crews are unbelievably effective at transforming properties–faster than you can imagine! They use chainsaws to cut cedar and underbrush, which can either be fed through a Chipper or laid out in a path for our mulching machines to obliterate. We can also leave the piles, if you choose, for wildlife habitat (common for those with wildlife tax exemptions) or to be burned at your leisure. We believe chipping or mulching the cut vegetation is the best way to go because of the environmental benefits the mulch provides. The layer of mulch left behind preserves your land by preventing soil erosion. Moisture and nutrients are sealed in beneath the mulch, thereby helping native grasses and desirable hardwood trees to flourish.

Our hand crew can work alone or in combination with our various machinery, including our tracked or wheeled skid steers, which can help them consolidate brush into large piles. If you have any questions about a potential hand crew job, please feel free to call our Office and speak to one of our experts about a free estimate.

Tree Shearing

Cedar Eaters of Texas can also clear your land with tree shears. While this method can be considerably cheaper than our mulching machines (and less invasive than dozing), you will still be left with an abundance of disturbed ground and large brush piles to get rid off. We typically perform our tree shearing services when we are dealing with small vegetation on rocky ground.

Oak Wilt Treatments

We mulch the infected, dead, or dying oaks, and the cost to clear these trees is usually much higher than when we are dealing with cedar. This is mainly due to the variances of density in the oak wood as it is difficult to give a land owner an exact bid on how long it will take to mulch the infected trees. We take every precaution necessary to keep from spreading oak wilt. Our hand crews paint the oaks we cut when we are working on a property that has the disease or when the disease is located nearby. Our operators clean off our machines daily to keep from transferring any contaminated debris. We also try to keep any and all infected trees separated from healthy oaks. If a land owner is still worried we will wash the machine using a mixture of bleach and water.
