Abilene, TX and San Angelo, TX Land Clearing Experts

Land clearing in West Texas is not an easy job.

Before your development or construction project can come to life, the land must be cleared of brush, Mesquite, Cypress, and ground cover including tall grass and weeds. From tree and shrubbery removal to stump grinding, Thornton’s Tree service has years of experience clearing land for residential and commercial purposes. Whether you are clearing land to build your dream home or to build a new business, we can help make that dream become a reality.

Common needs for land clearing services include:

  • Extensive forestry and vegetation cleared for commercial development
  • To increase property values and attractiveness
  • Remove trees and shrubbery that have been damaged due to pests, disease, or storms
  • Improving the grade of your property for personal or business use and drainage

Residential Land Clearing  Abilene, TX

Residential Land Clearing
This lot had been 50% covered with tall shrubbery before our forestry mower went to work.

If your looking to add a driveway or build a new home, our professional residential land clearing service will give you the results you desire. Our crews pay attention to detail and work diligently with you to make sure you are completely satisfied.

No job is too big for us. If you live in rural West Texas, then we have larger equipment to handle more dense and heavier vegetation on your property. Thornton’s is a trusted sub-contractor for major TXDOT contractors as well.

How It’s Done:

We mostly utilize a forestry mower attachment on our High Flow Skid Loader to clear land. This method is more efficient and environmentally friendly, and it does not leave you with large piles of cleared material to be burned or hauled off like with Bulldozing. We regularly receive calls from customers who have been waiting years for adequate rainfall to get their unsightly piles removed. With forestry mulching, brushes and trees are turned into mulch for the soil. This mulch is rich in nutrients, allowing for soil and tree root systems to remain healthy even after significant clearing.

Over the last few years we’ve had a number of wildfires in the Abilene area and it’s a good time to assess your rural property. The Texas A&M Forest Service has some great advice here on how to cut down on the wildfire danger on rural property, including maintaining a 30-foot barrier clear of burnable materials around all of your structures on your property.
