What we do?

Perhaps you have a tree stump located in an inconvenient place, such as, in the middle of your garden, ruining the look of your lawn or causing a trip hazard, perhaps it is preventing you laying that perfect patio.  You’re planning to build a fence, and of course that old tree stump is preventing you locating a fence post?

Really old stumps can rot and attract fungus and not only can this spoil the aesthetics of your garden, but it can also spread to other plants.

Many companies have to hire in a suitable machine but The Stump Grinder (North East) have invested in their own equipment.  Initially we purchased an FSI Power-Tech Stump Grinder, which was sourced locally and chosen for its good access as it fits through regular sized garden gates and is powerful enough to remove reasonably large stumps.   Our most recent investment is a much larger grinder, a Rayco, which means that we can also accommodate larger stump removal and commercial projects.

The Stump Grinder North East covers the whole North East of England including Northumberland, Newcastle upon Tyne, Durham, Sunderland, Teeside and surrounding areas and will normally arrange a visit without obligation in order to give an accurate quote.

The Stump Grinding Machine works by powering a large steel disc spun at a relatively high speed with a series of projections (teeth) on the disc which when swept across the stump will cut into the wood and shave the stump.  The rotation of the disc is powered by the machines engine.

Excellent service

Great service very well done. Tony Curtis removed all the tree and shrub roots (plus some very large stones) willingly and with a smile. He left the garden immaculately tidy and took all the rubbish away. It was a pleasure working with him. Thank you Tony. Isn`t it nice when you meet pleasant people who are good at their jobs. That happened today when Tony Curtis ‘The Stump Grinder (North East)’ came to remove tree and shrub roots (and very big stones) from my garden. He left the place immaculate and took all the rubbish away too. Thank you Joe Mallen, Tree Surgeon from Longhoughton for recommending Tony. Both lads did an excellent job and were great to work with.

Delighted with the end result

Hello Tony, Many thanks for removing the stump and associated roots of the ash tree in the rear garden. Anne and I are delighted with the end result, and eagerly anticipate replanting the area. Sorry we cannot post a review, but we have no facebook account. However, we have been really impressed with your professionalism, efficiency and superbly neat finish. Please feel free to quote this on any site on which you advertise. Best regards, Stephen.

Professional stump grinding service

Would highly recommend Tony Curtis. He arrived promptly first thing in the morning and worked hard all day to grind down 3 large tree stumps and some smaller ones too. He was friendly, professional and left the garden looking tidy. Thank you for a job well done.
