Case Study: Stump Removal For Garden Landscaping


Here at Elite Trees, we carry out all kinds of work on trees in Suffolk. Sometimes we’re doing all we can to prolong a tree’s life, and in other instances like this one, we’re asked to remove the last piece of evidence of a tree – the stump! Stump removal is one of our areas of expertise, and we have worked with a wide range of domestic and commercial customers. So when we got the call, we were more than ready to help.

The Challenge

The customer who got in touch with us had several tree stumps in their garden, left over from where trees had been cut down over the years. The stumps hadn’t caused too much of an issue until now, but now the client was looking to do something different with their garden and were finding that the stumps were getting in the way. Some were in the flower beds, and some were in the lawn – so it was impossible to hide them! We’ve worked with many clients facing a similar issue over the years, and were able to leap into action right away.

The Solution

We have a variety of stump grinders at our disposal, which means that we can work on jobs of varying scale and complexity with ease. After taking a look at the tree stumps on this particular client’s property, we decided that a tracked stump grinder would be most appropriate. Once everything was up and running, we were able to safely and efficiently grind down all of the stumps in the garden. As you can see from the images, it really did make a huge amount of difference to the client’s outside space.

After we had removed the stumps, the client was able to re-plant the flower beds and re-seed the lawn – just in time for the warmer months! Thanks to our equipment and expertise, they now have a garden that works for them.

Elite carried out both fencing and tree work for us. The fencing work consisted of approximately 50 metres of new fencing and the removal of a 15m high Holly tree along with stump grinding ready for fresh planting during the spring. Really happy with the final result the team were friendly and made sure everything was left tidy afterwards. Work was competitively priced and clearly a professional business.

Elite Trees replaced my rear fence for me. They were very efficient and friendly from the quoting stage all the way through to finishing the job. Fence looks great and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Dear Mr Thomas, thank you and your team for an exemplary job with which we are very satisfied. With the multi-stemmed Ash removed, we have been able to see the wood for the trees, so to speak. To avoid unnecessary constraints on future planting, we have decided to have the stump(s) ground out and I understand that you will arrange for that in the near future and look forward to hearing further from you.
