Tree Stump Removal Service

Professional tree surgeons in Staffordshire and Cheshire

Trees bring nature to any outdoor space, but some people choose to have one cut down if it seems unstable or impacts the area. While many people can cut down the main part of the tree, they often leave the stump in place.


It’s important to remove tree stumps for numerous reasons, including reducing pest invasions and eliminating trip hazards.


Using Express Fencing & Tree Services gives you access to a professional team of CSCS and NPTC-certified tree surgeons.


We offer people in the Staffordshire and Cheshire areas a safe and effective way to remove unwanted tree stumps, additionally to our complete tree surgery service.


Why you should remove tree stumps

There are many reasons to remove a tree stump, along with aesthetic factors. A stump in your outdoor space doesn’t look great – especially if you’re a business owner. However, there are also health and safety reasons to consider.


Let’s take a look at them.

Tree stumps attract fungi and pests

For you, a tree stump is a minor inconvenience. But for pests and fungus, it’s a dream come true. Problems will make themselves a home in the stump and could impact your other plants, while fungi can be dangerous to humans.

Risk of trips and injuries

Businesses have a legal obligation to protect employees and customers, which means they must remove all environmental hazards. Tree stumps can cause people to trip and become injured, which might result in legal fines.


Children in residential homes can also suffer injuries if they trip over a tree while playing in the garden, but tree stump removal eliminates these risks.

Impacting the functionality of your outdoor space

Leaving remaining stumps where they are will make it harder to perform general garden services. The stump can damage machinery such as lawnmowers and take vital nutrients away from other plants.


You’ll also have fewer options for planting flowers or adding turf to brighten your garden.

Professional stump removal from a fully certified team

As a professional team of tree surgeons, we know how to remove a tree stump safely, ensuring there’s no damage to your outdoor space. Removing an entire tree stump by yourself requires a great deal of physical effort, and you could impact the safety of those around you.


We take all the necessary safety precautions and work hard to give you a cost-effective solution.

Experts in stump grinding

The most effective way to remove an entire stump is by using a stump grinder to break down the leftover tree quickly, ensuring it also breaks up the roots to ensure the tree doesn’t grow back.


We use industry-grade equipment stump grinders, and all our professionals are highly trained and experienced.

Tree cutting

Some stumps are tall, so in these cases, it’s best to cut it down and then grind it. Our team uses professional cutting tools to get the stump as close to ground level as possible, then use the grinding method to remove the tree roots.

There are some alternative methods for tree stump removal. You can drill holes in the tree, stopping it from taking in nutrients from the soil. However, drilling holes and waiting for the tree to die can take four to six weeks at least – and it’s not the best way to remove a tree stump.


Some people also think a chemical method will work, but it’s essential to understand that chemicals are dangerous to work with and can harm wildlife and other plants in the area.


A professional stump remover will be able to notice signs of disease, safely remove the roots, and work with larger stumps.

We have high standards and ensure that anyone working on tree stump removal has the qualifications. They include holding a valid CSCS card and NPTC or other relevant qualifications in Forestry and Arboriculture.

It depends on the stump’s size and how much work we’ll have to do to remove it. Stump grinding can be relatively quick, but we might also have to cut the tree stump down.
