How stump grinding works
Removing a tree stump from your property is fast and easy. When our team arrives on-site, we’ll perform a general hazard assessment and ensure we can move our grinding machine into position without any damage to your garden or property.
Then, our professionally trained arborists will manoeuvre the grinding machine around the stump, effectively shaving it down to the ground and creating a coarse sawdust in the process. The precision cutting wheels grind the stumps at high speed, cutting it into smaller pieces until the bulk of it is gone.
With minimal trunk left in the ground, the roots will soon die off on their own, providing organic matter that enriches the surrounding soil.
Our experienced arborists will then backfill the hole left by the stump, leaving you with a neat and level surface to plant a smaller tree, cover the area with turf, extend your deck or patio, or completely redesign your garden!
Plus, this whole process can be completed in as little as 15 minutes for smaller stumps, and around two hours for very large or tough tree stumps.

Why you should choose an arborist for safe stump removal
Getting the professionals in to dig out a tree stump is the best and safest option for you and your family.
Stump grinding is a relatively simple process, however, it’s a job that is best left to the professionals. We don’t recommend DIY stump grinding, as there is always a risk that hired stump grinding machines will kick and buck, causing a range of safety issues. They can be noisy and hard to operate, and often more trouble than they are worth (especially if you unintentionally come across underground pipes or cables).
Plus, working on your own without experience in grinding stumps can make grinding a laborious, difficult task. This is especially true for smaller properties that have narrow access or areas where it is very tight to move a big piece of equipment through your yard.

The environmentally friendly alternative: grinding vs poisons and herbicides
There are many methods of removing tree stumps, including burning, pulling, digging or using harsh chemicals that accelerate decay. These methods can often be dangerous, time-consuming and can damage the surrounding landscape and soil biology.
Grinding is a safe and environmentally friendly way to remove stumps from dead or felled trees, leaving you with nothing more than natural mulch and wood chips with no damage to the surrounding earth.
