Stump Grinding & Cleanup


After we take down a tree and cut the stump low, we recommend stump grinding as the most efficient and cost-effective method of removing the stump.

We survey the area to ensure there are no underground obstacles, such as utilities, sprinkler systems or dog fencing. Then we use modern equipment to quickly reduce the stump to a pile of soil and woodchips, and we recommend grinding the root flare and trace roots, as well.


We use a small loader to remove woodchips from the work area so that the space can be repurposed. We offer two options for woodchip cleanup:

  • Hauling away the stump grindings to be recycled and reused for other purposes
  • Recycling and reusing the grindings on your property for mulch

We can bring in new topsoil, level and grade the area, and seed or install sod. Another option is to add a new planting or tree.
