Land clearing

Dirt Wirx is a Houston land clearing company that performs all types of site work. The website has a glossary of land clearing terms, as well as a blog.

Invasive Species Control – There are over 150 invasive plant species in Texas. These non-native plants can have devastating effects on our native ecosystem if they are not kept in check. By definition, invasive species aggressively out-compete native flora and fauna, using up vital resources in the area. For plants, that means an invasive species might smother an area and block other plants from sunlight, or aggressive root systems may deplete the surrounding area of nutrients. Clearing away invasive species on a regular basis is the only way to combat them and to protect vulnerable native plants.

Right-of-way and Utility Easements – Easements may need to be cleared to make way for overhead television, telephone or electric wires, or for underground cables and pipes. Clearing the land quickly and efficiently is important due to the large area that the wires or pipes have to run through. You may need easements for a new subdivision or development, or if you are building a home in a rural area that has never had utilities put in place.

Road Clearing and Maintenance – Land needs to be cleared of all plants and flattened before the foundation for a new road or highway is laid down, of course, but land clearing also is essential for ongoing road maintenance. Overgrown areas around a road can result in poor visibility and can encourage animals, such as deer, to graze near the road due to the protective cover of the plants and/or the availability of food.

Fire Prevention – Forest fires will only burn where there is fuel. Creating a wide dirt perimeter (also known as a fireline) around your property or around a vulnerable environmental area is one of the best ways to protect it from an incoming fire. If you live in an area that is often under a forest fire advisory, land clearing can offer some peace of mind.

Hunting Access Paths – Need a way to easily get your vehicle onto your hunting ground or near your deer stand? We can clear a path that allows you to drive into the area but minimally disrupts the surrounding cover.

Foot, Bike and Horse Trails – Well-marked recreational trails ensure that hikers, bikers and riders are less likely to get lost, and well-cleared trails also keep all users safe. We can clear new trails or maintain old ones that may have been blocked by fallen trees or overgrown by invasive species.
