Cedar Eaters of Texas offers a newer, more environmentally-friendly solution to eradicate your unwanted perennial vegetation. Grubbing is a relatively new concept that is growing in popularity due to its many advantages over older clearing techniques. Cedar Eaters' grubbing method uses two mechanical applications to extract the ENTIRE TREE–roots and all. We have a large excavator (nicknamed the Grubber) with a patented grubbing bucket and retractable thumb that can handle large mesquite trees and other types of vegetation that grows back, even when cut down to ground level. We also have a patented, skid steer-mounted grubbing bucket dubbed the ROOT-N-ALLTM. Both of these applications have helped Cedar Eaters with the successful removal of thousands of acres of perennial vegetation--including mesquite, huisache, black locust, retama and even cactus!
We primarily use the mesquite grubbing excavator (nicknamed the "Grubber") when dealing with large mesquite trees and other types of perennial vegetation. This machine is capable of extracting mesquite trees (whose trunks are up to 24 to 30″ in diameter) out of the ground; however, we typically recommend keeping mesquites that are that size or bigger. We recommend that the grubbed vegetation be laid out in what we call "wind-rowed piles" to be mulched at a later time; however, we can also pile the vegetation for wildlife habitat or to be burned on a rainy day by the property owner. Minimize soil disturbance caused by root-plowing and avoid loss of topsoil and grasses. Steer clear of nasty chemicals that require repeat application and use the environmentally-friendly "grubbing method" instead. Your property will thank you!

The ROOT-N-ALL grubbing attachment was actually designed by two of Cedar Eaters' employees to satisfy customers that needed smaller mesquite trees grubbed. This attachment mounts to a skid steer and has two hydraulic pincers that help stabilize the tree while the grubbing action is being performed with the V-blade bucket. When dealing with smaller mesquite trees, this process is considerably less invasive than even our excavator. When the grubbing is complete, we can detach the ROOT-N-ALL and switch to a grapple attachment to pile the grubbed vegetation. During this process, much of the dirt gets raked back into the holes providing a ready-to-use pasture capable of supporting livestock and wildlife immediately. The ROOT-N-ALL is a universal attachment for skid loaders that is available for purchase by private landowners through H&W Attachments, LLC.
