Frequently Asked Questions

  • How are the stumps removed?

    We use a stump grinding (root grinder) machine, which chews up the tree or shrub stump leaving just woodchip which is left on site as mulch.

  • How deep do you go?

    Stumps are ground down to a minimum of 6 inches to 14 inches below ground level, unless it is impractical or dangerous to do so - see our terms and conditions for details.

  • Will it cost anything to get a quote?

    No. If you are in our area (see the map on our home page) we will come out to you and give you a quote free of charge.

  • What happens to the woodchip?

    All that is left is woodchip which is left on site as a healthy mulch for the soil.

  • Can I plant over the old stump?

    Yes, not a problem. In most cases you can seed, plant, pave or fence directly over the ground down stump.

  • Will the tree grow back?

    In most cases no. Sycamore is sometimes problematic but we will come back free of charge if you get any unexpected re-growth within the first year after grinding.

  • Do you remove all the roots spreading out from the main stump?

    No we don't remove all the tree roots. We just remove the main stump to at least 6 inches bellow ground level. We can grind down any spreading surface roots if it is specified in the quote.

  • What about gardens only accessible through a gate / house / door?

    We can access anywhere and any width access - stairs / through houses / raised beds / confined spaces etc. In some cases very large stumps will need to have reasonable access.

  • What about underground services which might be effected?

    Most services should be below the 6 to 14 inches we go to. In the terms and conditions it states that the customer must inform us of any underground services in the area of the stump to be removed.

  • What is the cost of Stump Grinding?

    In most cases tree stump removal cost is simply down to the size of the stump/stumps measured across their widest point at ground level. For very small jobs there is a minimum stump removal cost.

  • Will you come and remove shrub stumps?
