Cat Spring

Brush and Small Tree Management Project

The below plan incorporates defensible space for residents as well as modifying the environment for reintroduction of Houston Toad to pond.

Natural Texas implemented the mechanical brush management aspect of the plan, plus additional work on the forest side of house.

Following is a description of the type of work as coresponding to the numbers on the satellite view above:

  1. Enlarged natural meadows by mowing encroaching brush & small trees.
  2. Arborists cut down large hazardous leaning trees from over fence, and forestry mowed their canopy. Cut large trunks into pieces for owners to move.
  3. Mechanically removed brush and small trees leaving quality hardwoods. Arborist pulled debris hanging from adjacent trees and from areas too narrow for forestry mower.
  4. Left very large drought-killed hardwoods for later.
  5. For Houston Toad, arborists hand cleared brush and small trees close to pond while leaving plenty of shade for them. Area adjacent to pond was cleared to facilitate their mobility.
  6. Arborists pruned brush and small trees to make transition from yard/lawn to natural area.

Testimonials

Carl seems to have an innate gift for seeing what the land needs. He and his crew not only transformed our property, but he educated us about how to care for the land ourselves. Our place has been "sculpted" by a true naturalist and professional. I can not say enough nice things about Carl and Natural Texas and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve the look and the health of their property.

Wow! Your work is absolutely beautiful. You and your crew have truly over-delivered. ln the coming weeks, l will get out to Camp Bowie to GPS the boundaries of your work to get a cost per acre estimate as reference for future contracts. We need your expertise, especially when conducting brush management in sensitive areas. Thank you so much for making this, one of my first completed contracts, a HUGE success.
