"I started grinding stumps at the age of 16 with my dad, who owned a tree business, and I instantly fell in love with the business. I love the smell of a fresh ground stumps, I love being outside, but most of all, I love meeting new customers and being on a new job every day. My career has taken me to many different places; from working on asphalt and concrete, to even owning my own landscaping business; but through it all, I always find myself back grinding stumps. So, I have decided to turn my passion into a business, and I look forward to meeting you".

I have over 15 years of experience in the stump removal business and I offer many different steps to my stump removal process. While most companies will grind the stumps and leave, I can offer much more then that.
The first step is to remove, or grind, the stump. While my typical service involves going 6-8 inches below grade, I can go much deeper if the job calls for it.
Typical cleanup is to rake the stump grindings into a neat pile. I will also blow off nearby areas or any area disturb from the stump grinding process. This step is included in all stump removal jobs.
The next step is to remove and haul away the stump grindings. Stump grindings can be used around the house, but most of the time, they are found to be useless. This step is above and beyond our typical service, and is only done if the customer requests.
The final step is to haul in topsoil. I can the fill in the void with screened topsoil. I can even add grass seed and straw, or plant a new tree. This step is also above and beyond my typical service.
While I will travel to remove stumps any where in Northeast Ohio, my main areas of service stick to Summit, Portage, Cuyahoga, Medina, and Stark Counties; Specially Macedonia, Northfield, Sagamore Hills, Twinsburg, Aurora, Brecksville, Solon, Hudson, Independence, Bainbridge, and surrounding areas.
Above is a video of me and my grinder removing two small shrub stumps from flower beds in Aurora, Ohio. While my grinder can handle much larger stumps, this video shows how nimble and gentle my grinder is, and the ease of access to tight job sites.
