Tree Stump Removal the Right Way

If you’ve recently had a tree removed from your property, you may be wondering what to do with the remaining stump. Many tree removal companies do not automatically do tree stump removal, leaving behind an eyesore that will remain on your property for years to come.

Thankfully, at Bushman Tree Service Inc., we provide professional stump grinding services to remove the stumps and roots left behind from tree removal. Contact us today to schedule your free stump grinding quote.


Tree Removal

Whether a tree on your property has come to the end of its life or you simply want to create more green space in your yard, hiring a professional tree removal company is essential. Attempting to cut down a tree yourself can be incredibly dangerous to you, your family, and your property.

However, our tree company has the skills, equipment, and experience necessary to remove trees correctly, including stump removal. We’ve been performing tree & stump removal services throughout King County (and beyond!) since 1987 and have perfected the craft in that time.

Why Remove Tree Stumps?

Some homeowners leave tree stumps behind to save money or out of convenience. However, hiring a company for professional tree stump removal is an excellent choice for several reasons:

  • Prevent roots from spreading

    A tree’s roots may continue growing after the tree has been removed, which could eventually cause property damage. Removing the stump and roots prevents this problem

  • Enhance Curb Appeal

    Tree stumps can be unsightly and hurt your home’s or business’s overall appearance. Removing these stumps can create a more professional, clean appearance that enhances curb appeal.

  • Improve Lawn Maintenance

    Removing tree stumps can make it easier to mow your entire lawn.

  • Prevent Pests and Insect Infestations

    Leaving a tree stump in the ground could lead ants, insects, and other pests to decompose the stump. These pests could eventually make their way into your home or business. However, removing the stump upfront can prevent this issue.

Stump Grinding Process

Stump grinding is a task wholly separate from the tree removal. As a result, many tree removal companies use different machinery to perform these tasks on separate days.

In broad terms, stump grinding uses a cutter wheel to grind the stump and roots into wood chips. The exact machinery and techniques we use at Bushman Tree Service Inc. depend on the number of stumps we’re removing, their size, and the extent of their root systems. 

However, a typical stump removal service includes the following steps:


Assess the property and the stumps in question.


Determine the best tools and process to use


Apply the stump grinder machine to the tree stump. 


Grind the stump into small mulch pieces. 


Remove all traces of the stump above the soil line. 

Customer Reviews

Michelle G.

Bushman Tree Service did a great job removing a dead tree, an old stump, and demolished a dilapidated shed. It was a 2-day job. They were on time and worked fast. Would definitely work with them again.

Bri R.

We have used this company a few times and they have been quick, professional, clean, and overall a great job. Both my neighbors are hiring them after seeing their work on our house. We will be calling them again this summer for another tree that is slowly rotting. Highly recommend!

Ryan A.

Mark and his crew were professional and friendly. Clear communication and super fast quote! Crew was thoughtful to the surrounding landscape and even left some of the birch bark for our son to play with! Would recommend them to friends and family and hire them again!
