What we offer:
- land restoration
- selective land clearing
- trail building services
- enable and supplement prescribed burns
- ensure adequate diversity of forest structure and habitat
What sets us apart:
Other companies use out-of-date methods of pushing trees over and creating large burn piles, which can cause other unforeseen problems, such as:
Soil erosion that scars and reduces the value of the land, which is expensive to remedy and pollutes Texas’ waterways.
Burn piles are unsightly and cause sterile soil areas when the concentrated heat kills vital micro-organisms in the soil.
Bulldozers compact the soil as they work and can often result in a 20% or higher mortality rate for trees adjacent to their work zones. Our method leaves soil compaction at less than 3.5lbs per square inch. (less than the average human footprint)
The advantages are clear!
Whether its new trails you desire, need to increase the forage area on your property, or craft more a native looking vista, Natural Texas Forest and Land Management can implement a landowners’ exacting vision while ensuring a healthy Texas landscape for generations to come.

Forest and Land Management
I would be happy to give you and your crew a positive review. We got a lot accomplished last week and are glad to have the place opened up. Now we can see and traverse our hillside property and creek bottom that was previously hidden and nearly inaccessible. After thinning and mulching the cedars, we can get around and enjoy the natural beauty of the land, and appreciate the oaks, elm, pecan and other native tree species. Looking forward to working with you again!James & Jordan TunnellLand Steward
Dear Land Steward, We have utilized the services of Carl Brockman and his Natural Texas crew several times in the past (since 2016). Their most recent visit to our property was in May of 2019 and we highly recommend them to anyone. As we work to “restore, improve and preserve native habitat” for wildlife, Carl's selective approach to land clearing has provided us with truly remarkable results. For our purposes, the clearing and trail making process involves removing excessive yaupon in the understory of our wooded areas but yet leaving the more desirable flora that provides important wildlife habitat. The coarse mulch that is produced by the forestry machine helps to minimize soil erosion and then provides nutrients to the soil as it decomposes. Carl has evidently passed along a great deal of his knowledge to his crew. After their initial visit several years ago and having seen the results of their work, we are confident in their ability to work independently of our direct supervision.Amy & John WatkinsLand Steward
