How does a stump grinder work?  A stump grinder is a machine that spins a large and heavy wheel at high speeds with cutter teeth attached to them.  The wheel is then pushed along the top of the stump grinding the stump into small wood chip like pieces.  The process is done over and over again allowing the cutter wheel and teeth to grind the stump 1 inch at a time.  This will result in the stump being ground bellow grade.  The stump grinding process would include major woody root that could interfere with planting or building in this area.  The end result is a very controlled and safe way to remove a large object from the ground.  Our team can then remove the debris in a wheel barrow and plant something that makes your landscape beautiful again.


Safety:  Stump grinding is a safe way to remove stumps in an urban area.  Our office will coordinate at free service called “locates” to ensure there are no hydro, bell, water lines or any other infrastructure that we need to be made aware of.  The machine has a variety of safety features and our operator is skilled and highly trained.  We can put up extra protection like plywood and other guards to protect your property from any unexpected debris or impact from the machine.  The end result is incredible we can remove large stumps from the ground and haul it away with no damage.  Our main goal is to provide safe and reliable work to our clients, and we strive to do this daily. 


We look forward to seeing you soon and speaking about your stump grinding and removal or future plans for the landscape.
