Stump Grinding & Removal
Tree stumps may be unsightly, or could be barriers to regrowth or building. When we grind and remove tree stumps, we remove the feeder roots 12 to 15 inches below the soil level so that you may replant flowers, trees, or other shrubs in the same location.
Tree stump grinding & removal in Vancouver, WA and Portland, WA is currently offered by our AK Timber Services office – call (360) 635-1076 today to arrange an estimate.
The Difference Between Grinding and Removal
Vancouver stump grinding is without a doubt the fastest, most cost effective and efficient way to dispose of a tree stump. This means that stump removal is more labor intensive, costs more and is a bigger job.
However, depending on the size of the stump after a tree removal and where it is located, removal may be the best or only option. We can help you weigh the pros and cons to your particular situation and assist you with making the right decision.
A giant spinning blade is used in stump grinding, and an operator lowers it as the size of the stump is reduced until it is completely gone. The wood chips produced by the grinder blade can be used elsewhere in your yard making this method a very ecological choice.

Stump removal in Vancouver, WA involves digging into the ground and around the root ball. The amount of work required increases in relation to the size of the root ball, and once it is removed there is the matter of filling the hole left behind with soil, dirt or some other material.
