Stump Grinding

Remove stumps and roots to avoid regeneration. When left in situ roots can penetrate plumbing, or interfere with landscaping plans.

The Urban Arborists Difference

Expert Advice

We provide sound advice as to when stump grinding is required and explain the potential effect of stump grinding within the root plates of adjacent trees.


We'll contact you to arrange a suitable time and date to undertake the trimming and make the proposed works fit around you. 

We leave your property tidy

After completing your job our team will clean up the site, removing any debris. The whole area is raked and blasted with the leafblower so it looks immaculate when we leave. 

We take matters seriously

Urban Arborists prioritise safety and care at all times. We're fast because we're experienced. We do not cut corners. As members of Site Safe, IMPAC and the New Zealand Arboricultural Association, we uphold our obligations of safety and care at all times. 

Generally, clients will opt to remove a stump at the same time that the tree is removed, and this is usually the recommendation. Occasionally you might like to keep the stump - as a home for the wildlife in your garden, as a seat or stepping stone, to protect the roots of adjacent trees, or simply for budgeting purposes.  

When should you have a stump removed?

  • You're about to engage a landscaping company to re-do your garden

  • The area is to be converted into a lawn 

  • The stump is diseased and potentially spreading sickness

  • The stump is regenerating or causing plumping issues

  • You're preparing the site for a development project 

  • You grew tired of looking at it!
