Elevated Arbor Care provides prompt, affordable and professional stump grinding and root removal services to customers throughout Western Sydney.
Tree stumps can be unsightly, a trip hazard, and also get in the way of general garden maintenance and lawn mowing. Elevated Arbor Care provides a local stump grinding service to ensure your garden is neat, safe and easy to maintain.
Servicing all of Greater Western Sydney, we can remove tree roots using our high powered grinder, leaving a flat surface that improves the look of your property and makes the area safer for you and your family.

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.

Our stump removal process

Stump removal is a safe and simple process when done correctly. Here’s how stump grinding works:

We conduct a site safety assessment and property access check.
Our arborist uses temporary silt fence or shade cloth to protect the surrounding areas and contain sawdust, mulch and debris.
We grind down the tree stump using our high-powered cutting saw, getting down into the soil and through the root ball.
The remaining hole is back filled with soil from the surrounding area, levelling out the site and ensuring it is safe.
We remove the mulch and excess wood chip (or leave it with you if you’d like to use it on your garden beds).
The job is complete… in as little as 15 minutes!

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.

Contact us for a stump removalist quote and avoid the hassle of digging stumps out of your garden yourself. We can tackle any size of stump, from just a few inches up to the largest and most stubborn tree roots.

We can remove all types of tree stumps including:

Stumps left after emergency tree removal
Stubborn stumps and root systems from pest species or invasive weedy trees such as camphor laurel, mulberry, rubber trees
Old, deteriorating stumps
Buried root balls
Tree stumps that are rotting or attracting pests (if you believe there are termites present, we strongly recommend a follow-up visit from a pest controller)

Costs of grinding a stump

Professional stump grinding prices are quite affordable when you take into consideration the long term benefits. Not only does removing old tree stumps make more space for your family to enjoy your property, but it also saves you money down the track by removing a potential termite breeding ground.

Because stump grinding prices can vary depending on the size of the stump, the location and the type of tree, it’s best to get an accurate quote by contacting our team.

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.

These guys worked bloody hard removing some trees for us over a couple of days. From the start the quote process was easy and well communicated. Steve was flexible, happy to give advice and great to deal with. On the days of the work there was a great team who turned up early and worked amazingly hard. They worked seamlessly with Sydney Wide Cranes who got the branches safely over our house. They took care of everything including large tree removal, wood chipping and stump grinding. They took the time after a long job to leave the street clean. You can tell Steve and his team take a pride in their work and they really wanted us to have the best experience. I would highly recommend Elevated Arbor Care. THANKYOU!

I highly recommend Elevated Arbor Care to anyone. From the initial call with Steve to quote the job (which I was pleasantly surprised at the reasonable price quoted), to Steve and his crew arriving early before it rained, I was thoroughly pleased with the overall experience from communication to professionalism when removing the tree. Definitely worth the five stars!!!

These guys were great. We had a huge paperbark tree that had died and we had to get rid of it. We got four quotes and this one was the most reasonable. Communication was great. They were punctual, friendly and did an excellent job. I'd highly recommend them. They cleaned up so well I could say you wouldn't know they had been, but the clean up made my house look much better than when they started. 😂 Can't thank you enough.

Just had Steve and Brad? cut down a cotton palm on my boundary, great service. They were quick, cleaned up and even gave my out of control hedge a trim. Would highly recommend.

Great communication from start to finish, turned up on time and completed a job with a large tree on the boundary of my property and a neighbours with a pool on one side. All came down seamlessly and the clean up was fantastic. Would highly recommend.
