It’s no secret that Stumps aren’t pretty, but did you know that sometimes leaving a stump behind can contribute to new sprouts, which may result in multiple small trees growing around the stump?
Our professional stump grinding service can help.
STUMP GRINDING SERVICE
When a tree is removed the trunk is usually cut down close to grade. The stump can be left to rot on its own but sometimes you may want to grind the stump below grade for esthetic reasons, to avoid insect infestation like ants or termites, or because it is a species that will aggressively sucker from the stump like Ash, Willow or Norway Maple.
To remove the stump below grade a machine called a stump grinder is used to break up the stump into small chips. Many stump grinders are huge heavy machines that limit access in back yards. Our stump grinder is only 30 inches wide so it small enough to fit through the tightest back yard gate but it is still powerful enough to grind very large hardwood stumps.
We usually grind stumps 8-10 inches below grade and remove the grindings flush to grade. Once its finished you are free to use the space where your tree once was for lawn or garden.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
Professional, safe and reasonable. What more can you ask for? They did an excellent job of removing two river willows that were shedding limbs on the street (Wellington County didn’t seem to care) and were ready to come down completely in the next ice storm. Cleanup was top notch as well. Pros ~ Lorraine McDonald
