Stump Removal

Following the removal of a large tree, the last part of the job is getting rid of the stump. Most people are inclined to skip stump removal in order to save money, but we always recommend stump removal as the final step in the tree removal process.

We offer stump grinding to all of our customers, if the access permits. Stump grinding is important, because it allows the homeowner to alter the space where a tree once stood. Typically, axing, burning, or poisoning a stump will not give you the results of total stump removal. Our stump grinders will pulverize the existing stump to a depth of about 4-6 inches below grade. On a case by case basis, we will grind a few feeder roots, but we will not chase all the roots throughout a yard since this can cause extensive turf damage. We never recommend planting a tree in the same spot as an existing tree, since the old roots can choke out a new tree. It is important to plant a new tree at least 5-10 feet from the existing stump, even if it is ground out.

Stump grinders come in all sizes, and our machines are able to fit through a standard 36″ gate. Our stump grinders are powered by remote controls which also allows us to access most stumps, regardless of their location. Please note that we are not able to grind stumps located in rock beds, within 6 inches of concrete, foundations, or fences. Our skilled crew members will advise if we can offer stump grinding during the initial consultation.

After Grinding a Tree Stump

Following the stump grinding process, we recommend the wood chips be removed and the hole filled with soil. Due to the near impossibility of removing all the old roots, many will remain in place, and you may eventually see mushrooms in the area where the tree once grew. Some types of old tree roots will also grow sprouts (Black Locust is a good example) — these shoots should be removed on a regular basis to prevent any part of the tree from growing back. We haul all excess chips that are above grade / mound when cleaning up. The rest of the mulch/chips below grade, we leave behind.

Please Note : If there are any rocks/concrete/bricks/etc underground that we aren’t disclosed or seen prior to grinding will be assessed extra fees and/or damage costs to our machinery.
