How do I properly measure the stump for estimate?

To help us provide an accurate quote for the removal of your tree stump we ask that customers measure the stump at ground level, and at the widest point. Also, it is important to look for radial ground roots that also need to be removed. Don’t just measure the blunt part of the stump that has been cut, measure as close to the roots as possible to get an accurate measurement, and avoid receiving an incorrect quote.

What can I do with the remaining wood chips?

The wood chips that are left from a project site can be used in many ways. The most common is adding them to your garden or compost. When used as mulch woodchips accomplish two important goals for your plants, standing trees, or garden. They help these plants retain water and stay warm. In addition they suppress the growth of weeds in garden beds, making it easier for you to maintain them. You can also use them for fuel and especially useful fire starter. You can also look to the internet to find more detailed uses for your leftovers.


Why should I remove the stump from my property? Why not just leave it?

As a stump begins to rot, it can attract termites and other insects such as ants, roaches and other pests. Squirrels, possums, raccoons even snakes may take up residence in old, hollow tree stumps—which may be too close for comfort! Tree stumps can cause accidents and injuries if left on your property—removing them will open up your yard, improving its livability. Also, the mulch created during stump grinding can be put to use in your garden, flowerbeds or composted for future use.
