Removing a tree stump can make the difference between an inviting, usable yard - or an unsightly and hazardous space.
Stumps are no match for us!
Whether it's a huge stump left over after cutting down a tree, a tree stump that's been rotting in place for years, or a bunch of smaller tree stumps littering your lawn, our heavy-duty stump grinder will make quick work of it.
We'll grind away the stump to 3 inches (or more) below grade, then fill the hole with the wood chips. Or, you can choose to use the wood chips as mulch elsewhere in your yard and fill the hole with topsoil so you can cover it with sod or plant a garden on top.
Sure, you can leave a tree stump where it is and let it rot away naturally - and slooowly... But there are some very good reasons why you'll want to get rid of tree stumps by grinding them out instead (click the button below to find out what they are).
Should you Try to Remove a Stump Yourself?
The short answer is "no". While you can rent a smaller stump grinding machine, it's not much use for anything but the smallest tree stumps. Plus, you have the expense of having it delivered (unless you own a truck and trailer to transport it yourself), you'll need fuel to run it, and you'll have to figure out how to operate the machinery without tearing up your yard and shooting debris everywhere. It's not uncommon for DIYers to end up with broken windows!
Another option we've seen homeowners attempt is to wrap chains around the stump and try to pull it out with a truck. That rarely ends well (unless, perhaps, it's just a small shrub). Shredded tires, stumps flying through the rear window, or chains coming loose and whipping through the air are just some of the common outcomes.
If you have a tree stump that you want to have removed, your best option is to call in the stump removal experts. Not only is it safer, it's usually cheaper and much, much more effective!
