Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding in Guildford, Petworth and the Surrounding Areas

Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery has removed tree stumps across countless properties in Cranleigh, Guildford, Petworth and the South East region since first starting out in 2010. Using specialist machinery, we undertake stump grinding for domestic customers and commercial clients. If your property had a tree stump when you bought it, or if you need to deal with trunk remnants from tree felling operations, our tree surgeons are here to help.

With 20+ years of shared arboricultural experience, and with NPTC and LANTRA accreditation, our team completes stump grinding work in compliance with HSE legislation

Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery uses its machinery to improve land space in the following ways:

  • A Safe Environment – Often unseen at such low levels, tree stumps represent a tripping hazard even for those familiar with an outdoor area. Stump grinding eliminates the risk of tripping and, worse still, potentially injuring themselves.
  • Visual Appeal – Even in the most beautiful garden, a tree stump is an eyesore. Homeowners in Cranleigh, Guildford, Petworth and the surrounding areas can transform their kerb appeal, and the beauty of their gardens, with our stump grinding services.
  • Plant Health – Stump grinding leads to a healthy garden. When stumps rot, they become susceptible to disease and fungi, and have the potential to harm children and pets. Honey fungus, in particular, can spread to infect other plants in your garden.

Tree stumps have no positive qualities or upsides, so it should come as no surprise that an increasing number of home and landowners in the Southern Home Counties use our stump grinding services. Please contact Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery to arrange a free, no-obligation estimate for a fast, safe and ethical stump removal.

Stump Grinding | What to Expect

The roots of most trees in Cranleigh, Guildford and Petworth, and those in the wider Surrey and Sussex areas, grow inside the first 16 inches of soil. Stump grinding machinery reduces trunk remnants to below the soil line, leaving a woodchip that acts as mulch to help decompose the remaining roots safely, and with no concerns at all over disease and fungi.

The process leaves the surrounding area free of limitations and paves the way for future landscaping or development work.

Stump grinding services from Surrey & Sussex Tree Surgery cover work on uneven terrain and our machinery is small enough in size to pass through the average garden gate. This means our tree surgeons can deal with operations in most domestic and commercial locations, even those with limited access.

The rotating disc of a stump grinder creates woodchip which we can leave in place for you to use in your garden but, if a home or landowner wants it removed from a Cranleigh, Guildford or Petworth property, we can do so and pass the material down to other customers for use as fuel or a landscaping material.
