Stump Grinding Services · Tri-County Region / Dutchess, Orange & Ulster Counties

After a tree has been cut or felled, you’ll be left with a stump in the ground. There are plenty of reasons to remove a stump from your yard, but digging it out yourself is only possible if the stump is very small. The most effective way to remove a stump is to hire a professional stump grinding company with the right equipment for the job.

Why Should You Remove a Tree Stump?

Tree stumps are more than just an eyesore. They can be a tripping hazard, especially for young children or the elderly, and large roots can damage your lawn mower and other equipment if they aren’t removed. Old, rotting stumps can attract insects and other pests to your yard, and are a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

  • 1

    Make your yard safer

    From tripping to lawn equipment damage, tree stumps can pose a safety hazard in your yard.

  • 2

    Regain access to your yard

    Stumps block areas of your yard which could be used for planting new trees or other plants, putting in a play area, building a patio, etc.

  • 3

    Avoid attracting pests

    Dead tree stumps can attract termites and carpenter ants to your yard.

  • 4

    Protect nearby trees

    As a stump rots, harmful fungi move in and can spread to nearby trees and plants.

  • 5

    Permanent removal

    Tree stumps can resprout and grow into new trees over time, forcing you to constantly remove the new growth.

Excellent job. Cleaned everything up. You would not know anyone was in our yard. Would definitely use them again.

If you have an ugly tree stump taking up space in your yard, now is the time to get it removed.

The Hill Treekeepers stump removal professionals can permanently remove a stump and eliminate the risks that come with letting it sit on your property.

Stump Grinding: What to Expect

Call Hill Treekeepers for professional tree stump grinding services in Newburgh, Montgomery, Gardiner, and all of the surrounding areas in New York's Hudson Valley. We’ll come to your property to inspect your tree stump(s) and provide you with an estimate.

Our stump grinder is large enough to tackle any size stump but small enough to fit through a gate to access almost any yard.

We offer a highly professional stump grinding service. Even large uprooted stumps can usually be ground, saving on excavation and topsoil fill costs.

Typically, we grind the main stump 6-8" below grade level, as well as any lateral surface roots within about 3 feet of the main stump.

You're left with wood chips and soil (if requested, we'll rake them into a pile over the stump hole). Over time, the wood chips decompose and you can plant grass, flowers, or even another tree.

As an additional service, we can also fill the hole with screened topsoil and cover it with grass seed and straw mulch. Pretty soon it'll look like nothing ever happened.

When providing you an estimate to remove trees, we will also provide options for removing any stumps. That way you'll have all the information you need to make the right decision for your situation.

We were extremely happy with the work Todd and his crew did for us. They removed a few dead/dying trees from our property including one in a tricky area that another company told us would require driving heavy equipment over our septic tank (and that they wouldn’t be responsible if they damaged it!). Todd’s estimate for the job was slightly higher than the other company but he figured out a way to access the tree that completely avoided any risk to our septic system so it was well worth the slight extra cost. His team was efficient and professional and they left the job site clean and in great shape. I would definitely recommend Hill Treekeepers and would not hesitate to use them again in the future.

What To Consider When Hiring a Stump Grinding Company

WHO WILL YOU HIRE?

If you plan to have a tree stump removed, be sure you hire a professional tree service that has the proper experience and equipment to handle the work. Stump grinding is a dangerous job and requires specialized skills and equipment to do the work safely. This is definitely not a job where you want to cut corners!

ARE THEY INSURED?

Be sure that the stump removal company you use is fully insured for this type of work (not just for general landscape work). We're happy to show you our Certificate of Insurance upon request.

HOW WILL IT BE DONE?

When our certified arborist comes to look at your tree stump(s) to give you a free estimate, he'll let you know how the job will be done. That will involve heavy equipment that will need access to your property so we'll carefully measure any gates or other obstructions to make sure the stump grinder can fit through the openings.

WILL THERE BE DAMAGE?

While we carefully try to minimize any damage to your landscape (such as by placing barriers around the stump grinder and boards beneath the machinery as we manoeuver it into place), some damage to your lawn may occur if the ground is wet or soft.
