Our Bandit 2650 stump grinder
Sylvester Stump Grinding is owned and operated by brothers Jes and Skip Sylvester. We’re the entire staff and your job will always get our full attention. Stump grinding is tough work but that doesn’t bother us, as our work ethic was passed down to us by our hard-working ancestors, who have called Harpswell, Maine home since the mid-1700’s. We love working in the Maine outdoors and making properties throughout the Mid-Coast area beautiful and enjoyable. We’re dedicated to one thing only, satisfying our customers.
What a beautiful view, except 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 and we’ll set up a time that’s convenient for us to meet with you at the job site, in order for us to determine the scope of work. Every stump grinding job is unique, which is why we want to meet with you. At the meeting you can identify the stumps to be ground and tell us what your plan is for the area after the stumps are removed.
The factors that affect job costs are 1. the type, size and quantity of stumps 2. how deep we will grind the stumps below grade. The grinding depth depends on your plans for the area 3. whether the grinding of large buttress roots or exposed roots is involved 4. the presence of rocks or ledge 5. the proximity of obstructions or buried utilities.
That same evening we will email you a detailed proposal and estimated price for the scope of work outlined at the earlier meeting. Once we receive your written acceptance of the proposal, we’ll contact Dig Safe, to comply with Maine law, and schedule your job for completion as soon as possible.
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. 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. Grinding debris will be consolidated and left in the area of each stump that we grind.
