Stump Grinding

We grind stumps of all shapes and sizes within the Tauranga area and travel as far as Matamata, Rotorua and Whakatane for larger jobs. From small citrus tree stumps to large shelter belts, we have the gear and expertise to tackle any size job.

Our large tracked stump grinder allows us to grind to up to 75cm below the ground level while our smaller 4 wheeled machine will grind to a depth of 35cm. We will discuss the grinding depth with you when providing the quote, the depth will largely depend on what you want to do with the area afterwards, for example if you were to re-grass you may only want to go to 15cm, this would also reduce the cost of the job. We may need to discuss reducing the depth if utility assets such as fibre or gas lines are within the area.

Our stump grinders are self propelled allowing for easy movement on hills and mounded landscapes. Our tracked machine allows us to get into areas where wheeled machines simply can’t access. Our 2 smaller machines are on soft tyres which reduce the impact on lawns and concrete. The front of the stump grinder has a large rotating disc with cutting teeth which grind the stump and surrounding soil into a mixture of wood chips, sawdust and soil.

Before starting to grind, the area needs to be free of hazardous objects such as rocks and branches. If you’re trying to minimise cost, we recommend clearing the area before we arrive.

Top Soil, Replanting And Lawn Seed

Once the stump has been removed you will be left with wood chips and sawdust. The problem with wood chips and sawdust is that it changes the composition of the soil and as a result the area will not be ideal for replanting.

Sawdust and wood chips are high in carbon, the carbon from these materials absorb the nitrogen within the soil in its quest to decompose. Once the sawdust and chips decompose the soil will be richer, however this process usually takes a couple of years. Planting in soil with low nitrogen levels can result in yellowing leaves and stunted plant and grass growth.

We provide a waste removal service which replaces the sawdust, wood chips and soil with new top soil. We can also sow seed for your new lawn and replant if required. An alternative option to removing the waste is to use a nitrogen fertiliser which helps break down the wood waste and rebalance the soil.

Utility Assets

Utility assets carry vital services to your home or business which include water, electricity, communications and gas. While we generally work above utility assets we still need to take all the necessary precautions in accordance with work and safety regulations. We provide a free service to identify what utility assets are on your property. During this process many of the utility providers will provide detailed plans on the location of their assets, in most cases they are happy to do this free of charge for obvious reasons. For physical asset location services charges will apply, in all cases a quote will be provided beforehand.

100% recommended. Great communication and nothing was too much trouble - it was really awkward for Paul to get his kit to the stump - needed to go right round the house and through a garage - but Paul found a way and had it done in no time. Thanks again.

Paul was absolutely amazing from the time he came on site to do a viewing to the time he completed the job. He was extremely careful moving around the property or near the house with the machinery. Paul was very meticulous in his work, making sure the pulp from the stumps was spread out. He left the site very clean afterwards.

Paul was extremely quick to get back to us and contacted us prior, and arrived right on schedule. He did a fantastic job with the stump grinding and finishing off, even in the tight spaces some of the stumps were located. Friendly, professional, efficient and reasonable prices - what’s not to like?! Highly recommended and would definitely use again. Thanks again Paul, Jude & Brian
