Grinding away a tree stump and root crown with a Stump Grinder can be completed after the tree branches and trunk have been removed. This service can be completed on the same day as the tree removal or even years after. During the grinding process, the small wood chips and soil are processed back out into the garden. Often stumps are removed to reduce trips and falls, make lawn care easier and to increase the aesthetics of a garden.

Reasons to have a stump removed;

  • The stump could be a trip hazard

  • Stumps are hardwood and can damage lawn mowing equipment

  • Mowing and lawn care is easier without a stump to navigate around

  • Stumps can influence new shoots and sprouts

  • Stumps can take up space
