Tree stumps can be unwanted for a number of reasons. They can be in the lawn, flower bed or in the way of a new shed/patio or building.
Old stumps can cause honey fungus which lives off dead and decaying wood. This can spread into other trees and shrubs in the garden.
Any size stump can be removed using machines that are suitable for the job in hand.
For the majority of the stumps a machine called an Alpine Magnum (photo right) can be used, which is very portable and can be carried through houses.
It can grind any size stump to approximate 18 inches below the surface.
The stump mulch backfills the hole. The remainder can be used for compost, etc.
For bigger stumps we use tracked machines such as the Predator P38X (photo above).
