Stumps are a by-product of tree removal.  So if you want the tree completely gone, we can grind out the stump for you.  Plywood is put up to protect the immediate surroundings from projectiles flung from the machine.  The stump is ground down below grade (more if desired), and the mess is then cleaned up and taken away.  The hole is filled in with some of the grindings or could be filled with loam upon request.
