Professional stump grinding in Hitchin and throughout Hertfordshire.
Stump grinding is the removal of the stump left behind from a felled tree to an agreed depth using a stump grinding machine. Our tree surgery team at Waterman Tree Co uses the FSI B20 stump grinder which is compact and balanced and can grind down all types of tree stumps. After a tree is removed, the last thing to do to ensure it doesn’t grow back is to remove the stump left in the ground. We can remove any number of stumps in one visit, and we can do this after we have felled a tree or as a stand-alone service for trees that have already been removed. Stump grinding is the process of grinding out a tree stump to a depth of approx 6-12 inches under the ground’s surface using a specialist stump grinding machine, Tree stumps close to properties often cause damage and can be difficult to remove without making the problem worse. Our method of stump removal is assured to create minimal disruption with the most effective results.

The cost of stump grinding depends on a few things, namely the size of the stump, also the species of tree – whether it is hardwood or softwood. But you can rest assured that we offer some of the most competitive rates for stump grinding that you will find.
