Stump Grinding and Removal

At Woodchuck Tree Service, our team of professionals is equipped with three specialized stump grinding machines to ensure efficient and damage-free removal of stumps from your property.


Stumps are ground down to a depth of 4-6 inches below the soil surface, facilitating proper regrowth if new soil, grass, or sod is to be laid. For customers intending to plant new trees in the stump's place, grinding to a depth of at least 24 inches is necessary to promote healthy growth.

Why Grind Your Stumps?

Many of our customers opt for stump grinding to enhance the aesthetics of their lawn or to facilitate new landscaping projects. Reasons for stump grinding include:

Improving lawn aesthetics by removing unsightly stumps.

Eliminating obstacles for mowing and maintenance.

Preventing stump decay and minimizing the risk of pests nesting.

Enabling the planting of new grass or trees in the cleared area.

Upon request, Woodchuck Tree Service can haul away wood chips, fill the stump hole with fresh soil, and plant grass seed to restore your lawn's appearance.
