Stump Removal Bristol

Stump Removal specialists


A tree stump is the lower part of the tree that remains after the main part either falls or is cut off during a tree removal operation. They can often prove to be a pain to remove, as extensive root systems underground keep the stump solidly in place. Tree stumps can not only be an eyesore to your garden, but can also be a hazard, especially to young children or vulnerable adults. Tree stumps can also attract unwanted pests and insects that are drawn to the decaying wood. It is important to get tree stumps removed as quickly as possible to ensure your green space is kept safe and tidy.

At Burchdale Tree and Garden Services, we provide tree stump removal across Bristol and the surrounding areas. We use a technique called stump grinding, where specialist stump grinding equipment is used to grind the stump down to below ground level where it is out of view. The machine causes the stump to be grounded down into mulch, which can be used as fertiliser, to help improve the health of other plants in your garden. This will remove the hazard a tree stump creates, keep pests away from your garden and improve the aesthetics of the space, allowing you to use the area for another feature or to grow other plants.

Tree stump grinding is by far the most cost effective, safe and environmentally friendly way to remove a tree stump. Our friendly tree surgeons have the training, experience and equipment to make light work of your tree stump. All our operators are also fully insured.
