Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is part of our normal tree removal process. Ideally, the tree itself will be cut within inches of the ground level, meaning that there is less stump that actually needs to be removed. Stump grinding mulches the existing tree roots several inches below the surface, destroying most of it and what is left hides under the ground as it decays over time.

Leave Stump Removal to the Pro’s

Stump grinding is one of those services that you always want to leave in the hands of the pro’s, just due to the risk involved and equipment needed. It would take you hours and hours to chop up a stump with an axe, and if you used a chainsaw it would probably eat through an entire blade by the time you were able to finish. Even if you did just so happen to have a quality stump grinder on hand, it’s a dangerous piece of equipment and is better left in the hands of the professionals.

We ensure complete removal, no small stumps will be left waiting underground to ruin your day.
