Why You Should Use Professionals for Stump Grinding and Stump Removal Services


Jims Tree offers a comprehensive, value for money stump removal and stump grinding service. They can remove any stumps, large or small. No matter the landscape surrounding the particular tree stump. Jims can handle almost any terrain.



There are many reasons to get a tree stump removed. Not only can they be an eyesore but they are also potentially hazardous. If you have small children running around in your backyard, the last thing you want is for them to hurt themselves in a way that is foreseeable.

Tree stumps can also harbour fungal diseases such as Phytophthora or Armillaria; these conditions can be a significant health hazard to nearby trees and vegetation.



If a tree stump is not removed, it can quickly begin to rot and can quickly become home for termites, ants and other pests. Although there aren’t any native New Zealand termites that are a danger to construction, there have been several infestations of Australian Termites in recent years. Australian Termites can endanger properties, so it is a social obligation to remove dead tree stumps properly. This should eliminate the risk of this invasive species-taking root in New Zealand (source).

We previously wrote an article on the danger of DIY stump removal. There are multiple reasons you should always hire the professional’s health and safety compliance is just one of these reasons.


There are also major financial risks you should be extremely wary of. Tree roots can occupy an area four to seven size of the size of the visible tree stump, so there are risks to damaging underground hazards such as pipes. Which can lead to hefty council imposed penalties.


Why Choose Jim’s Qualified Arborists

Before Jim’s qualified arborists begin any stump removal, they perform a thorough analysis of the surrounding terrain to ensure your safety, the safety of your property and the safety of our staff.
