Why can’t we remove the stump when you come out to give me a quote?
How long does a stump removal take?
While we wish we could give you an exact amount of time for this, the truth is, it depends.
The type of wood we are grinding, how decomposed it is, and what the root system is like all contribute to the amount of time it will take us to fully grind and remove your tree stump.
Our priority is the complete removal of your tree stump so no matter how long it takes, we work hard to ensure that you receive a quality tree stump grinding for a fair price.
Do you offer any discounts?
Glad you asked! We offer the following discounts on your tree stump removal:
- Customers ages 62+
- Customers with multiple stumps to remove
Please call us at (319) 343-8043 or complete our online quote request form for more information.
Do I really need to remove my stump?
Yes! Stumps left to rot are not only a physical hazard in your yard, they can attract animals and pests such as termites.
Before Stump Removal
Who will locate all hazards prior to my stump removal?
We call Iowa One Call at least 48 hours in advance of your stump removal project. The utility companies will come to locate their specific systems in your property.
If you have an underground irrigation system or other underground systems not covered by One Call that could interfere with your stump removal, we ask you to please mark those out on your property prior to your stump removal appointment.
Do I need to be home for my stump removal quote?
Yes. In order for us to make sure we are removing the correct stump on the correct property, we need you there to show us the stump.
My stump is in the backyard/a hard to reach place. Can you remove it?
That depends. Our grinder is capable of moving through a standard 36″ gate opening so as long as we have that much room, there’s a good chance we can get your stump out.
The only way to know for sure is to request your FREE, no-obligation tree stump removal quote. At your quote appointment, we can give a definitive yes or no for whether or not your project is doable with our machinery.

After Stump Removal
What should I do with the stump grindings from my stump removal?
Your stump grindings are actually excellent mulch! Use them anywhere you normally use bagged mulch such as flower beds and landscaping projects.
Don’t want to use them? Then they can be easily discarded with your regular yard waste.
Do you fill and landscape the stump area after it’s removed?
No. Instead, we find that most homeowners prefer to keep the mulch and landscape the area themselves.
