Stump Grinding in Ottawa

Stump grinding is the easiest and most common method of stump removal. A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power tool or equipment attachment that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating a cutting disk that chips away the wood. This method is best removing stumps of harder woods such as oak, but can also be used for softer woods. These machines are extremely dangerous and should only be used by professionals with trained experience. We do not recommend this as a DIY project.
