Grubbing Mesquite to Prevent Regrowth

Mesquite trees are notorious for deep roots and a stubborn hold in the ground. Most ways you slice it, using a dozer or mulcher leaves roots in place to regrow.. quickly.

Cactus Creek's mesquite grubbing service addresses the regrowth problem with excavators to clear mesquite, pulling up their root systems without disturbing the soil anymore than necessary. Uprooted mesquite can be mulched to add a protective layer to the soil or hauled out and disposed elsewhere. Grubbing is a great alternative to chemically treating your land because it’s one-n-done and less disruptive to the natural habitat.

Nuisance of Overgrown Mesquite

Our fleet of excavators, mulchers and an experienced hand crew are ready to reclaim your land from mesquite.

Mesquite Grubbing Benefits

Land Clearing—The main purpose of mesquite grubbing is to clear or reclaim land, whether you’re a land owner with plans for a space, or things have simply gotten out of control on your property.

Eco-Friendly Methods—Mesquite grubbing can be done with minimal soil disturbance, and the mulch that is left behind can protect the soil and encourage growth of native grasses.
