What is
Stump Grinding?

Stump Grinding is the process of removing a portion or all of the stump from a pre-existing tree.

Stump Grinding is typically, and most efficiently, done with a piece of equipment we simply refer to as a 'Stump Grinder' (see picture). Stump Grinding can be required for faster root deterioration, aesthetics, structural projects and replanting. Neighbours Tree offers a range of below grade depths to fit a project's needs, while also attending to surrounding surface roots.
