At Urban Nature Tree Surgery, we provide a reliable, safety-conscious stump grinding service that keeps private gardens and public spaces safe and looking their best. Whether it’s directional felling or sectional dismantling, the process of tree felling leaves behind a stump. Not only do these stumps pose a safety risk, they also act as an eyesore, an attractant to various bacteria and fungi as well as a barrier to landscaping and development projects. We provide a fully-qualified tree surgeon to conduct stump grinding in order to reduce remnants to a sub-ground level.
Located in Chichester, our tree surgeons operate throughout the surrounding West Sussex and Hampshire areas, from Arundel to Midhurst, and from Peterfield to Petworth. Our domestic customers and commercial clients in the region utilise our stump grinding service for one of the following reasons:
• Safety – Tree stumps represent a low-level trip-and-fall hazard, even for those who know the land well. Stump grinding removes the risk of someone tripping and injuring themselves on your property
• Aesthetics – No matter the setting, tree stumps make an ugly feature. Even if you put hours of care and maintenance into a beautiful garden, a lingering stump will always draw attention
• Garden Health – Decomposing stumps and roots attract an array of bacteria and fungus, such as honey fungus, that can spread to other healthy plants. Fresh tree stumps are also vulnerable to suckering
With so many negative qualities and no positives, it’s unsurprising that an increasing number of homeowners turn their attention to professional stump grinding.

Put simply, stump grinding involves the use of a heavy-duty machine equipped with a rotating disc that grinds a tree stump into small wooden chips. The disc itself, or cutter head, has off-set teeth designed to make relatively short work of the stump. Urban Nature Tree Surgery has a range of stump grinding machines in various sizes. These include those capable of fitting through an average garden gate up to much larger site clearance models.
Regardless of size, however, stump grinding machines have a significant amount of power. As such, this type of work should always be entrusted to a fully qualified tree surgeon who not only works swiftly, but with optimal safety too. With qualifications from NPTC, Lantra and City & Guilds, the tree surgeons at Urban Nature Tree Surgery follow safety-conscious practices as second nature.
In addition to our outstanding, safe workmanship, we also ensure clean and tidy working sites in Chichester, Midhurst and the surrounding areas. For example, we erect protective screens to prevent the spread of wood chips. In fact, we use this material to back-fill the resultant hole, burying the remaining stump and roots to safely decompose out of sight.
