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.

Our Stump Removal Process

There’s nothing that will “stump” our expert team of arborists. Working with Croft Tree Experts ensures that your stump removal needs will be met with professional quality, timely execution, and at a competitive price. Our stump removal and stump grinding services utilize our specialized tools and equipment to find a solution that works for your property.

We start by getting a thorough assessment of the depth and size of the stump – this will determine how deep we need to dig and what is the best course of action. Once digging is approved, we will grind the stump down to a specific size and then remove the entire stump along with its roots. After the stump is removed, we fill the hole with the mulch created from grinding the stump, which will eventually break down into soil. You can choose whether you want to add topsoil or additional mulch and in no time it’ll be like the stump was never there!
