Tree Removal & Stump Grinding

Why Trees Should Be Removed

No one likes taking down a tree, particularly one that's been around for a long time. But sometimes tree removal is the best option for both the tree and the property owner.

Damaged and Unhealthy Trees - Trees fail for all sorts of reasons - storm damage, disease, pest infestation (like Emerald Ash Borer) and structural problems all take their toll and eventually the tree is beyond the point at which it can be saved.

Tree Size or Placement - Some trees simply grow too large for the area in which they're planted. What seemed like a small tree 20 years ago may have grown into a huge tree today that dwarfs your house or blocks the driveway.

Dead or Unsafe Trees - Don't forget the safety factor - dead or dying trees can pose a hazard to your family, as well as passers-by. This is especially true for dead ash trees. Learn more about removing dead ash trees here >>

Tree & Shrub Care Resources

I hired Organic Plant Care to remove a mature, sick and dying sugar maple at the front of my farm in Tewksbury, NJ. This was not the first time they have worked for me. Previously, they have removed trees, sprayed and pruned large shrubs and performed some really amazing, creative rehabilitation work on a lightning-damaged mature tree that most companies likely would have sadly cut down. Obviously, I have been pleased with their past performance. And yet, I was still amazed--along with my carpenter, who had worked his way through school doing such work--watching Organic Plant Care's professional team members climb through this treacherous tree right on a country road. Not to worry; nothing fell on the road, and my yard remained nearly spotless even during the removal. Keep in mind when hiring a tree removal company: you do not want a group of inexperienced clowns working in a high-risk situation on your property when liability is a major issue! Here, they surpassed my expectations and did an amazing job. I was sad to see the tree go, but I was certain with Bill Grundmann's expertise and knowledge that I was doing the right thing. Highly recommended!

Tree Removal and Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding

After your tree has been removed, you'll probably want to grind away the tree stump.


Here are five good reasons for grinding and removing a tree stump:

  1. The stump may be a safety hazard, an obstacle, or is just plain ugly.
  2. With the proper soil amendment, you can plant a new tree in the same location – but only after the stump has been removed.
  3. Removal eliminates the possibility of attracting highly destructive carpenter ants and/or termites.
  4. Stump removal discourages the growth of harmful fungi from the rotting process which could spread diseases to nearby trees or plants.
  5. Removing the stump is the only guaranteed way to prevent the tree from growing back.


We offer professional stump grinding service. Even large uprooted stumps can usually be ground, saving on excavation and topsoil fill costs.

Typically, we grind the main stump 8-10" below grade level, as well as any lateral surface roots within 3-5 feet of the main stump.

You're left with wood chips and soil in a pile over the stump hole.  Over time, the wood chips decompose and you can plant grass, flowers or even another tree.

As an additional service, we can also fill the hole with screened topsoil, and cover it with grass seed and straw mulch. Pretty soon it'll look like nothing ever happened.

When providing you an estimate to remove trees, we will also provide options on removing any stumps. That way you'll have all the information you need to make the right decision for your situation.
