Your Local Tree Stump Removal Specialist
What do StumpBusters do exactly?
StumpBusters are the specialists in tree stump removal and they grind out the stumps using the most up to date machine called a stump grinder. This machine literally grinds the stump into chippings. This is the most efficient method of destroying the stump and leaving the area ready for the next stage of garden design, replanting, fencing or building works. Contract work is also regularly undertaken for commercial operators including tree surgeons, landscapers, builders, Local Government, Estate Managers and Utility Contractors.
What happens to the chippings that are left?
StumpBusters reduce the stump to chippings that are mixed up with the soil in which the stump was standing. This valuable resulting 'mulch' is left in the tree stump hole for our customer to utilise. It can also be used as a mulch elsewhere. The ground can then be replanted immediately, turfed or the mix can be used as an excellent alternative to other forms of weed inhibiting mulch.

How much does it cost?
Costs are based upon the size and number of stumps to be removed. When asking for a quotation it would be useful to have some idea of the number of stumps and a rough idea of how wide they are and how tall. Check the available access. This information should enable StumpBusters to give you an accurate, 'no obligation' quotation on the phone. If not, your local StumpBuster will visit the site to assess for quotation.
How soon can you come to remove my stump?
StumpBusters try to be as flexible as they can. Work will usually be booked to be done within two weeks depending on the time of year . If you have a small stump then StumpBusters may ask you to wait a little longer until another job is being done in your area, this reduces the costs for everyone.
Do I need to be at home?
StumpBusters only ever meet about half of their customers. Our reputation is such that customers are happy for us to carry out the work in their absence knowing that the work will be done efficiently with the minimum amount of ground disturbance and the area being left tidy.
Do StumpBusters do other tree work?
StumpBusters are dedicated to the efficient removal of tree stumps and do not get directly involved in any other aspect of tree work or garden maintenance. StumpBusters are often asked to carry out other work, and we are happy to refer and recommend you to our network of local tree surgeons and contractors.
Will the tree re-grow?
Usually any stump that StumpBusters remove is completely ground away and will not re-grow. There are one or two exceptions, willow for example, that may send up the odd shoot from a piece of root but even these can easily be managed with advice from StumpBusters.

I have a stump that is right up against a wall?
If this is the case then StumpBusters have the answer. Our versatile machinery is ideal for inching right up to a wall, patio or other object that you do not want to have damaged in any way. StumpBusters can usually take out all signs of a stump literally to within millimetres of any structure without causing damage.
How much mess will be left?
StumpBusters pride ourselves in providing a service that leaves the customer completely happy with the work carried out. This includes leaving the area tidy after the operation is complete. StumpBusters use shields and boards to prevent the chippings going where they are not wanted.
