Stump Removal

If you would like a stump removing and it can’t be accessed with a digger – before attempting to fell the tree you should contact us for a quote as we sometimes use a specialist tool known as a tirfor (a type of pulley) which uses a larger tree for leverage. We have two tirfors for different size trees, there is a video on our Facebook page to demonstrate how they work.

If you are felling a tree try to leave a stump at least 6 -12ft high, this will give the tirfor some winching power from the anchor point. When using a tirfor we will be very careful not to damage underground wires or pipes by digging a circular trench around the tree first to disconnect the support roots and make constant checks during the removal process.
