Leon and the team use an advanced Bandit stump grinder to deal with large, unsightly tree stumps and root balls (if accessible).

What are the benefits of a tree stump removal?
A tree stump removal in Canberra is beneficial for several reasons (besides complementing a tree removal).
- It removes a trip hazard.
- It reduces the chances of regrowth.
- It removes a potential nesting site for termites.
- It improves the appearance of your property / lawn / garden.
At Stump’d Tree Services, we strongly recommend the removal of tree stumps.
What’s the difference between stump grinding and traditional stump removal?
When it comes to tree stump removal in Canberra, most arborists prefer stump grinding to digging out the trunk (the traditional method of stump removal). A modern stump grinder uses a rotating cutting disc to chip away at the trunk and root ball (if accessible) – a method that’s usually quicker, cheaper and less intrusive than excavation.
One of the added benefits of stump grinding is that wood chips are produced, which can be used as mulch in your Canberra garden. Mulch helps to insulate and enrich your soil, as well as reduce evaporation and weed growth. If you don’t require mulch, we’ll remove and dispose of the wood chips in an eco-friendly manner.
Please Note: tree stumps affected by disease or honey fungus can’t be used as mulch.
