We Care about your Tree Maintenance

After your tree removal, we highly recommend having the tree stump ground down below grass level or out of site. We are able to bring in another piece of machinery that will enable us to carry out stump grinding in Newcastle and remove an unsightly tripping hazard from your premises.

Stump grinding can provide a myriad of benefits for your yard. Once we have performed your tree removal and part of our tree services here are 5 reasons why you might consider getting yours removed:


  • Trip hazard – leaving a stump sitting just out of the ground can be a trip hazard, particularly in grassed areas and therefore this can cause trip hazards. Kids may trip over whilst running or the elderly may lose their footing, fall, and break a bone. Stump grinding reduces physiological risks.
  • The look – stumps left to rot don’t contribute to your place looking neat and tidy. Hence, stump grinding can bolster the value of your property.
  • A nuisance – when you use the whipper snipper or mow around a stump, the stump is not easy to maneuver around. Stump grinding allows grass to grow over the top leaving the place easy to mow.
  • Attract insects – stumps left take a long time to rot completely. While the stump is decaying it can attract insects, beetles, termites, and any other wood-boring pest. Eventually, these pests will look for other forms and more importantly, can spread to your home. Our services can also reduce pest activity.
  • Stumps cause new tree growth – sometimes leaving the stump behind contributes to new sprouts, which can result in many small trees growing around the stump. Stump grinding removes the likelihood of any new growth.
  • Dial Before You Dig

    As part of our stump grinding services, we offer a free Dial Before You Dig plan before performing any Newcastle stump grinding in your front yard. As a result, for example, Telstra, Gas, Water or Electricity are showing underground we will offer you the following options:-

    1. The choice of not grinding your stump or
    2. We will recommend you have Underground Service Detecting done by an independent company.  This is to ensure us not disturb or damage services whilst grinding but also the safety of our crew and equipment.

    Underground Service Detecting

    After the dial-before-you dig plans have been completed, or unless we can see straight away when quoting, we may suggest underground service detecting as part of our tree services and our stump grinding services in Newcastle and surrounding areas.

    In particular, if you have gas near your tree stump, we will not grind without having this service completed.

    Harley is our go-to man and he can identify where the services are and how deep, enabling us to perform stump grinding at its safest after your tree removal. We do not want to be responsible for a gas leak and I am sure you don’t either.

    What happens to the shavings?

    After the stump grinding we will rake the shavings back into the hole. The excess shavings are a great mulch for your garden. If there are going to be excess shavings, we will ask you if you would like to keep them or for a small fee we can remove them for you.

    Most people keep the shavings as this is a great mulch for the garden.  Tree Removal is expensive enough and the extra added cost to remove the shavings, well we don’t really do it.
