Why Should I Choose Sunny Slope Tree Service for Stump Grinding and Stump Removal Services?

For starters, removing stumps takes experience. 

Time and time again, we’ve helped homeowners who tried to remove their own stump by renting a stump grinder. But they simply didn’t get the whole thing! 

Removing stumps with a grinder isn’t as simple as Youtube might make it look, and it’s easy to overlook roots that get buried in the grindings. 

When you work with Sunny Slope for your stump removal, we bring decades of experience to the job site. Our trained arborists and technicians know what to look for to leave you with a clean, grass- or landscaping-ready lawn. 

With close attention to detail, we try to get every inch of the stump, including any exposed roots to ensure a compelling and beautiful lawn after the removal is done. 

Stump grinding is messy and can be destructive to your lawn! We do a few things to ensure your property looks great:

We put up guards to prevent stump grinding chips from flying everywhere. These large guards keep the mess of wood chips and grindings from flying everywhere in your yard during the process.

We use large rubber mats underneath our equipment where necessary to help preserve your lawn during equipment movement and the grinding process.

We do stump grinding safely! Do you know that a stump grinder can throw rocks and solid objects dozens of feet in any direction? We take precautions to ensure there are no injuries or damage on-site.

We’re fully insured in case of accidents or property damage during a stump removal, which can happen from time to time.

With three decades grinding and removing stumps throughout Lancaster and the surrounding area, we have the experience and expertise to remove your stump safely and effectively.

What Are the Benefits of Stump Grinding and Stump Removal?

Stump removal done right can dramatically improve the look of your property. The reasons and benefits of getting rid of a stump include:


Improved Appearance: Removing a stump can create a smoother and more aesthetically pleasing outdoor space, making your yard easier to manage and getting a great-looking lawn.

Reduced Risk of Injury: Small stumps in areas where people move about frequently can be hazardous and cause trips or falls. Removing an unsightly or hazardous stump can reduce the risk of injury (and liability) on your property.

Improved Soil Quality: Stumps can block the natural flow of water and minerals in the soil, leading to compaction and infertility. Removing a stump, particularly large stumps, can improve soil quality and promote healthy plant growth.

Reduced Pest Infestations: Stumps provide the perfect environment for pests such as termites, carpenter ants, and other wood-boring insects. Removing the stump can reduce the risk of an infestation that could travel to your structures or other trees.

Increased Real Estate Value: Removing a stump can increase the value of your property by improving the overall landscape and curb appeal. If you’re thinking of selling your home, now is the perfect time to get rid of that aged old stump.
