Columbia Stump Grinding & Removal Services
Sometimes you have an old tree stump left over in your yard after having a tree cut down or maybe from some damage or maybe it was just there when you moved it.
Old stumps can regrow new tree sprouts if not removed and roots can still grow out and affect things on your property, like your sewer lines, pipes, and housing foundation. Looking into tree stump removal is the only way to prevent this from happening.
Old tree stumps aren’t just ugly and unsightly, they can also be downright dangerous. Decaying stumps can attract a plethora of bugs and insects and give them the perfect place to breed and multiply and if your kids play anywhere near there, it’s too easy for them to be attacked.
Tree stumps can also cause some major damage to your lawn mower and other lawn equipment.
Tree stump removal is a bit more detailed and involved than tree stump grinding, so our tree service specialists can help you decide on what’s best for your situation and your budget.
No matter which one you choose, our tree removal technicians will use the right equipment to ensure everything is done to code.
As long as our equipment can access the space, our tree service specialists can grind as deep into the ground as needed to do the job safely and completely, taking extra care and paying extra attention to any utility lines or sprinkler systems.
If you’re a composter or just want to use it for your landscaping needs, you can choose to keep the beneficial mulch from the stump grinding or you can have us haul it away, whichever suits your needs.
Stump Grinding: How Do We Do It?
We use high quality stump grinding machinery to pulverize any size tree stump into small wood chips you can use as mulch or add it to the compost pile. In most cases, we grind between 8 to 12 feet, but we have equipment that can go as deep as 15 feet, if needed.
Once the stump grinding is done, the area is filled in with healthy soil which you can then covered with sod or turf of your choosing, leaving your newly cleared land even, level, and beautiful.

Full Tree Stump Removal: Why Do It?
While stump grinding is a lower cost than a full tree stump removal, sometimes getting rid of the entire stump is paramount to making sure the job is done right. In cases where you’ll be constructing or building something near the stump, you’ll want a full stump removal to prevent any cracks or weakening in your new construction due to growing roots from it.
We’ll need to dig out the root system and detach it before the tree stump can be fully removed, so there’s a lot more labor involved. There’s a bunch of factors to consider when figuring out whether or not to choose stump grinding or stump removal.
