Did Your Tree Removal Company Leave The Stump?

Stump grinding requires special equipment, and many smaller tree removal companies just remove the tree and don’t provide tree stump service because they lack a stump grinder. But most homeowners would prefer to have the stumps in the yard for various reasons.

Why Should You Get Rid of Stumps in Your Yard?

Below are 5 reasons to have a professional stump removal contractor get those stumps out of your landscape.

  1. Safety –  Tree stumps are trip hazards for kids and adults in the yard
  2. Reduced Curb Appeal – Unsightly stumps affect the look of your landscape and could affect the sales price of a property.
  3. Insect Infestation – Insects are attracted to tree wounds and a stump is a perfect place for wood boring insects. These insects could end up in your house over time.
  4. Regrowth – Stumps can grow new saplings, and if left unhindered, tree removal may be required again at a future date. 
  5. Landscape Upkeep – Stumps in the yard make landscaping and maintenance difficult. Mowing and weed control are particularly impacted.

What is Involved With Stump Grinding and Removal?

The stump removal process involves a grinding tool to grind the stump and tree roots into small, mulch-sized wood chips. These pieces can help fill in the hole in the ground level when the stump is removed. In nearly every case, we can remove the entire stump. However, if any root pieces remain, they are typically 6-10 inches deep below the surface. Therefore, the remaining stump pieces will usually decay with no further issues.

    Excellent service, above and beyond!!!!

    I called Stein Tree to come out and check my beech tree. It’s big and old and I love it, except it was scratching my windows and looming over the roof quite badly in a few spots. They came out and gave me an estimate the very next day with no contact. It was a month before they could get out, but I wasn’t in a huge hurry and it wasn’t an emergency! They also told me from the beginning it would be about three weeks, so four wasn’t a hardship.

    The guys who came were AMAZING. I asked them if they would confirm a branch would hold the swing I had literally got in that day. They agreed to check and then just hung it up for me!

    Kiddo has played on that swing every day since and the tree looks AMAZING.

    We had Stein Tree Services remove a huge 50 ft + oak tree located about 2 feet from our house. It had massive branches hanging over our roof and was no small task to remove. They were able to get the tree removed with just a bucket truck (not a crane like some other quotes I got), were done in under 8 hours, and left no mess or damage to the house despite how close the tree was to our home. They were on time for the work, wore all the proper safety gear, and pricing was the best of any other companies we got quotes from. Can’t recommend this company enough!

    Highly recommend! Matt is super-responsive and estimates the job with great detail. There are no surprises and they care for their customers yard. It was supposed to rain when the job was scheduled and we easily rescheduled for less than a week later. Very happy with the company’s leadership and in-office staff and the crew as well. All around positive experience and would use Stein Tree again.
