Do you have an old, ugly tree stump on your property that you’ve been putting off having ground down?  Did you cut down a tree and decide it would be cheaper to just leave the stump in the ground?  No matter what your stump situation, we can get rid of that old stump with our professional stump grinding services.

We don’t mess around with axes & saws when it comes to making those stumps vanish.  We bring in the heavy artillery and grind the stump below ground level, or remove the stump entirely in some cases.  Either way, when we’re done with it, that stump will be little more than a pile of mulch that you can use to spread on your planters.

Why Should You Grind Stumps?

Stumps are more than just ugly bumps in the ground.  They can be dangerous to people and your property.  Old stumps are the breeding ground for bugs and critters that can harm other parts of your home.  Stumps also pose a threat to walkways, foundations and concrete.  The roots from a stump can continue growing and grow into your home’s pipes, causing major plumbing issues as well.

How We Handle Stump Grinding

We make fast work of grinding or removing the stumps you need removed from your property.  We bring in one of our commercial stump grinders that will fit through most 36″ residential gates.

Normally, we are able to grind the stump down below the surface approximately 8 to 14 inches which completely eliminates any visible portion of the stump.   We then backfill the the area so you have a level surface and plenty of depth to plant new sod or grass seed.  If you have visible roots attached to the stump, we grind those below grade as well.

To prevent new root and stump growth on living stumps, we recommend the application of a chemical that stops the growth.

We offer home & property owners affordable stump grinding & removal and many more services.  If you would like a free estimate on your stump grinding project, give us a call at or fill out our online estimate form below and we will get back to you quickly with a price.
