What our clients say about us...

Stump Removal Sunshine Coast
Cutting down a tree may seem like a major project in your garden but it’s fairly straightforward (size depending) when compared with removing a tree stump. Stump removal is a lot more involved and potentially dangerous, which is why it’s not usually included in the cost of tree removal. Professional Stump Removal businesses use a variety of heavy equipment to ensure the tree stump is removed efficiently and safely.

Why Remove a Tree Stump
If you've gone to the expense to hire professionals or cut the tree down yourself, it doesn’t make much sense to leave the stump in the ground. A few reasons to remove stumps from your property include:

  • They are Not Pretty – No one likes looking out into the garden seeing stumps dotting around the landscape. They will look even worse when weeds and other plants start growing on them.
  • They Take Up Garden Space – Most people want the clearest gardens or yards possible, a poorly located stump especially in the middle section of the yard can take up a lot of room given you will normally set things away from it for aesthetic and/or safety reasons.
  • They are a Safety Hazard – While some stumps are obvious, others will eventually get camouflaged by grass, weeds and other plants. These become tripping and landing hazards. While stubbing your toe will hurt, imagine someone falling and hitting their head on one.

What is Stump Grinding?
Stump grinding is the safest and environmentally friendly method for removal of tree stumps and roots. The high speed cutter wheel of a tree stump grinder grinds the stump and roots into small wood chips. Once ground, the hole can be refilled with soil and replaced with grass or plants.

Why Are Stumps So Hard to Remove?
As a tree ages, its roots grow deeper into the ground seeking stability and ground water. This makes it nearly impossible to simply pull it out of the ground without some kind of heavy machinery assistance.

Environmentally Friendly
Stump grinding reduces the environmental impact to the surrounding area when compared to pulling the stump or using excavation equipment to remove tree stumps. The by product of wood chips can be used on the garden or even if left where they fall, will breakdown naturally over time returning nutrients to the soil while also improving soil condition.

What to Look for in Stump Grinding & Removal Services
If you decide to hire a company to remove tree stumps for you, make sure they are fully accredited and insured. Ground Down hold all certification, licencing and insurance to ensure you'll not only get the best possible service but also peace of mind that in the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you're covered.
Experience is one of the most important factors when selecting a Stump Grinder. This means that they have worked in all environments and locations that mean where others fail in difficult situations, Ground Down Stump Grinders excel.
