Stump Grinding

For us, stump removal is an integral part of tree removal. Stumps left behind will decay and may become a breeding ground for fungus and termites as well as being an eye-sore. We have machines that convert the stump into mulch so that you can replant, re-turf or build over the very site that the tree has been removed from. Stump grinding transforms a stump into mulch which can be used to fill the empty space left by the tree. We have a number of different sized machines large enough to remove stumps from open spaces and small enough to fit through your front door or side gate.

Stump Removal or Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding involves mechanically grinding down the remainder of the stump. The advantage of stump grinding is that level at which the stump is ground down is adjustable. This means that it can be ground down to only 2 inches underground or up to 12. It’s also an efficient solution that is fast, affordable and environmentally sustainable.

Stump removal refers to a more intricate process of stump extraction that removes the stump from the ground. Stump removal may be necessary if the tree’s roots have become infected or a dangerous hazard to the landscape. It also safeguards against the possibility of regrowth.
