Stump Grinding & Tree Removal

There are a variety of reasons why a tree may need to be removed from your property.  Trees often outgrow their location or intended purpose, other times the tree succombs to an insect problem like Emerald Ash Borer or a fungal or bacterial pathogen such as a blight or wilt disease. Whatever the reason, many homeowners have to remove and replace dead or dying trees at some point. We offer stump grinding and removal services so that you can replace your dead tree with something new – often in the same spot as the old tree.  Most tree removal companies only grind tree stumps down to a depth of 6" below grade, however, in order to plant a new tree in the same location, our professionals can grind stumps down to the necessary depth of 20-24" below grade.  Wasco Nursery’s foremen will assess the size of the existing tree or stump and offer an estimate on the cost of removal.  Our experienced crews can grind stumps of nearly any size and can remove trees up to 18" in diameter.  If we feel that that the existing tree is outside the size that we can safely remove, we are happy to offer referrals to some local tree removal companies that we trust and work with on a regular basis. Please note that our stump grinding fees are NOT included in our normal tree-planting fees.  

Please let us know ahead of time if your new tree is going in the same spot where an old tree was previously growing – even if you have already had the stump ground out by another company.
