How to Remove a Tree Stump

When you have a tree removed, stump removal is often an afterthought. Although some people may choose to leave the stump intact and blend it into their landscaping as a makeshift table, most people view it as an eyesore or tripping hazard and opt to have it removed. With 30 years of experience, we understand that there are different methods available and different stumps will require different methods. We are able to evaluate each situation and recommend the best plan of action.

In the case of stump removal, size plays an important role. The larger the tree, the more labor intensive and difficult it will be to remove the remnant without leaving anything behind. We can find a method that fits within your budget and still leaves you with results you will love.

Why Remove a Stump?

As a respected Greenville tree company, we know stump removal isn’t always necessary. It may be in the middle of unused land where it will not be a nuisance. Many environmentally friendly people are utilizing stumps as outdoor furniture like tables or chairs. But there are many instances in which the stump has got to go.

New construction – If you are building on a plot of land, you need lot clearing in order to begin. Even if the stump isn’t directly in the way of the construction, it can attract insects like termites that can be damaging to a new building. Our process can eliminate the potential problems before they become an issue.

Landscaping – For some people, the remains of a trunk just don’t fit into the vision they had for their yard or garden. The greatest local gardeners trust Greenville stump removal to professionals. Without our powerful machinery, this job can be time consuming and back-breaking work.

Root growth damage – When a tree is cut down, this doesn’t necessarily kill the roots. Most will die off within days or weeks. But there are some really resilient species out there that can continue to grow for months. These roots can create a real headache by invading your plumbing pipes and wreaking havoc on your foundation. While many companies swear chemicals will do the trick, most formulas haven’t proved to be entirely effective and can be damaging to the groundwater and soil. Stump removal is the only guaranteed method to stop root growth in its tracks.

Customer Reviews

"My husband and I used Carolina Outdoor Care a few months ago and were very pleased. We had put off having our three large trees cut down due to there closeness to the house and the cost. We had one dead tree and one that hung completely over our house. All three where within 10ft of the house. We also had power and cable lines running under the trees to the house and shop. I was terrified of the damage that could be done to our house and our budget. Carolina Outdoor Care had impeccable customer service. They were able to work within our budget and finished all the work in one day. There was no damage to our house or yard. It was amazing to watch them work. We will use Carolina Outdoor Care in the future and highly recommend them."

"I have used Carolina Outdoor service to remove two trees from my backyard. One was dead and the other was endangering my neighbors property. Carolina Outdoor safely removed both trees and then pointed out ways I can reduce my liability with my remaining trees. They were on-time professionals and worked with-in my limited budget"
