What a beautiful view, though the stump is an ugly eyesore. We transform situations like this by making the stump and roots completely disappear.

Free Estimate and Job Costs

We provide estimates at no charge.  Call or email us to set up a time that’s convenient for meeting you at the job site.  Every stump grinding job is unique, which is why it’s important for us to view the scope of work.  After you identify the stumps to be removed and tell us what your plan is for the area, we will give you a verbal fixed price for the job.  That same evening we’ll email you a detailed proposal. Once we receive your written acceptance of the proposal, we’ll notify Dig Safe and schedule your job for completion as soon as possible.

Job costs are determined by the following: the type, size and quantity of stumps; depth below grade we will grind; if grinding extensive surface roots is involved; the presence of rocks or ledge and the proximity of structures or buried utilities. 

Grinding Debris

Debris from the grinding process is a mixture of wood and soil and the mix makes a wonderful mulch for controlling weed and grass growth in gardens, planters and walkways, etc. The volume of debris generated at your job is dependent on the species of tree stump and its size and age, as well as the depth of soil penetration made while grinding the stump and roots. Grinding debris will be consolidated and left in the area of each stump that we grind.  We do not remove grinding debris from worksites.

Whenever grinding takes place near structures or vehicles, we utilize machine-mounted curtains and portable debris containment to prevent possible damage.
