What can I do to help?

Why stump grind?
Once a tree has been removed the root system and stump are left behind. Some times this root system may be in the way of future plans for an addition to your house, perhaps even a shed or garden expansion.
The stump may be protruding from the lawn and be in the way of mowing. The root system, now the tree has been removed, may become a trip hazard, a common source of injury.
Termites and other vermin such as mice and even snakes can and quite often do set up house in the remains of tree stumps, placing your home and other wooden structures at risk from termite infestation and endangering your loved ones from associated risks.
Simply by grinding the stump away you will reduce hazards and protect your family, property and nearby structures from the above mentioned dangers
