“What I liked most about Timberland was their equipment all seems very new. Their chipper was brand new, as well as their large stump grinder. Important to know: one of the tree companies who gave me a bid could only chip branches and not larger trunks because their chipper was only 12″. Timberland’s chipper is 18″ or more. They chipped my entire coastal redwood and, with their new machine, I got beautiful mulch!”

Why Should I Have My Tree Stump Removed?

Tree stumps aren’t pretty, but keeping one on your property can have other downsides, too.

They can keep growing

Tree roots can continue to grow after the rest of the tree has been removed. That means a stump can still continue to damage your sidewalk, foundation, drain line, irrigation system, or fencing.

You should enjoy your yard

After removing a tree, many homeowners want to use that same space for something more fun. Whether you want a smooth, safe grass for the kids to play on, or whether you want a new deck you can relax on after a hard day’s work, you’re going to need to remove that stump.

They can attract pests

Tree stumps can also attract insects, like termites, ants, and beetles. If they stay in the stump that’s fine, but more often than not they’ll eventually jump to your healthy trees, fences, or even to your home.

We Offer Both Stump Grinding and Stump Removal

Stump removal involves removing not only the stump but the entire root system underneath. Left to itself, some root systems will regrow into new offshoots or cause other issues. Stump grinding is a much smaller and more economical option, but leaves the root system behind, which can sometimes cause regrowth. Our arborists can help you determine if your stump’s root system is at risk for further growth, or if it can be effectively covered and left to decay.

Keep Your Mulch or We’ll Haul It Away

Stump grinding creates a lot of mulch, which is a great ground cover. We can spread your mulch anywhere you like to help insulate the soil, lock moisture in, and slow weed growth. The downside is that stump grinding creates a lot of mulch, and depending on your stump grinding needs and yard size, you might not want all of it. In that case, we will be happy to haul your excess mulch away.

How Much does Tree Stump Removal Cost?

Tree stump removal jobs generally run from $80 to $350, depending on the size, root system, and accessibility. Opting to have multiple tree stumps removed during the same visit will generally decrease the cost.
