Who We Are

Why Choose
Cedar Beetle Inc?


Cedar Beetle’s roots begin in 1936, when Fred W Bader, Sr., bought his first dozer. He continued to grow his business over the next four decades. In 1974 Fred Bader, Jr. assumed management of the thriving business and passed it on to his son, Fred W Bader III (Trey) in 2003. Today we continue to grow both in services and scope, with the largest fleet of specialty rail vegetation management vehicles in the Southen United States.
