Stump removal

Get to the root of the problem with stump grinding

Insects and pests love to make nests out of tree stumps. If you've recently had a tree removed from your site, you'll want to make sure you remove the stump as well.

We use our stump grinding machine to grind down the stump. We go below the surface of the ground and chip away at the roots, so you won't be able to see the any part of the stump when we are finished.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between stump removal and stump grinding?

When we remove a tree stump, we dig down below the earth and pull the tree out by its roots. This process can leave significant damage if your stump is near pavement, a building, or if its roots have settled deep into the earth.

When we grind a stump down, we use a machine which chips away at the wood until we reach around 30 cm below the soil surface. This is a safer and more efficient way to get rid of any unsightly tree stumps on your site.

Do you remove the entire stump when using a grinder?

No, some roots will remain. But we remove any parts of the stump you can see above ground, so it'll feel as though the stump has been removed.

Can I leave the tree stump?

If you're not bothered by it, you can leave your tree stump. But, before long, unwanted pests and insects may invade. Termites and rats love making nests in tree stumps. If termites make a home in your backyard, you can be sure your other trees, or even your home, may be at risk.

Are there any landscape factors that would impact grinding my tree stump?

If you're on a sloping block, you may need to leave your tree stump–moving it could disrupt the stability of the ground, as well as the structural integrity of surrounding plants. We would cut the stump as low to the ground as possible, and use the grinder to chip away as much as possible without destabilising the area.

How much will stump removal or grinding services cost?

We'll assess the size of the tree stump, the species of the tree, the age of the stump, and the amount of time we think it'll take us to do the job. Then we'll give you a quote.
