Stump Removal

Ventura's Stump Removal Pros

Trees can make a property’s exterior look great. However, they are vulnerable to a handful of threats. And when a beautiful tree is transformed into an unsightly stump, those stumps can become dangerous to people and property. In worst-case scenario,  the root system can become diseased, ruin the foundation of your home or introduce disease into new plants. Stumps can also serve as a home for pests and affect children and pets. 

Our professional and affordable tree stump removal specialists are here to help.  No matter if the stump originated yesterday or last decade, we will be happy to help you eliminate it.  Our licensed arborist will visit your home or commercial property in Ventura, CA, assess the situation and provide you with a fair quote.  Then, we will complete all work in a timely manner with our trademark attention to detail and professionalism. 

Stump Removal on the West Coast

If you’re having a tough time deciding if you should get your tree stump removed from your property, consider these factors.

  • Stumps take a long time to decay, and they will attract insects and pests. Beetles, termites, and others will gather near your stumps.  This can even lead to damage to the exterior, or the foundation of your property. 
  • Stumps cause new tree growth and contribute to new sprouts. This can result in small trees growing around the stump, which you will then need to remove too. 
  • Stumps can create a tripping hazard
  • If you accidentally hit a stump while mowing your lawn, your mower can be damaged
  • Stumps take up yard space which is especially problematic if you don’t have a large yard.  You can often find a much better use for the valuable space a stump and its roots take-up 

These are just some of the reasons why you may wish to have a stump removed.  Of course, if you are using our professional tree removal service, we will completely remove the stump too.  But, if you have removed a tree yourself, or purchased a property with stumps, then removing the stump by a professional is the best solution to the problem. 

Palm Tree Stump Removal

Whether you have a tall or short palm tree, most have hidden root structures below the soil and multiple thin roots extended into the ground. A palm tree that was recently damaged or diseased should be cut down to a stump, and then the stump must be carefully removed.  If not done properly, the palm tree root can remain deep beneath the ground, bringing with it pests and potential structural damage.  If you have a problematic Palm Tree stump in you Ventura property, be sure to get in touch with us for a free quote, and fast and professional service. 

Oak Tree Stump Removal

An Oak is a very hard tree with a complex roots system. Oaks provide shade, shelter, and timber. Oaks can live for hundreds of years and reach a height of more than 150 feet, and width of more than 9 feet.  Since oaks have large roots, their stumps are very difficult to remove.  If you are based in Ventura, CA we are happy to help you remove an old Oak tree stump.  Just give us a call and one of our expert arborists will visit your property and provide you with a free quote.  

Of course, you could attempt to remove an old Oak stump yourself.  In this case, you will need some tools:

  • Canvas gloves
  • Safety glasses
  • A hatchet
  • A shovel
  • An ax 

First, dig a circular trench around the oak stump (2 feet from the tree’s outer edge). The final trench should be 2 feet deep and 2 feet wide. After digging, scrape the soil away from the Oak’s large roots. Chop through larger roots with an ax. 

While using the ax, be sure to keep your feet wide apart and bring the ax down between and in front of them. You must be very careful and alert while doing this. Keep your feet well clear of the blade at all times.

After you are done with large roots, next step is to work on small roots.  Here you can use a hatchet. This will take some time because oak trees are extremely hardy.

Finally, dig down and in toward the central root while prying and loosening the stump up with a shovel. 

When all of the roots are cut, pull out the oak stump, and fill the hole with soil. You’ll need more than soil than you might realize at first, since the very large oak stump takes up a lot of space.

If removing the stump out isn’t an option, drill holes in the stump and fill them with soil. Then, cover the oak stump with soil to keep it moist and to speed up the decaying process.

If this seems like a lot of work, we are more than happy to help. Using professional top of the line equipment, our stump removal specialists will quickly and safely remove the unsightly Oak stump from your Ventura, CA property.  Call us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week – Ventura Tree Service Pros we are here for you. 

Sycamore Tree Stump Removal

Sycamore trees are one of the largest species of hardwood trees. A sycamore often grows between 40 and 100 feet, and may spread as wide as 15 feet. Sycamore trees are commonly found in areas with moist soil. Many parts of Southern California are ideal for Sycamore trees and they thrive on the West Coast. 

Even if all you have left is a sycamore tree stump, a new sprout may grow here.  Sycamore trees are very hardy and a stump provides the perfect nutrients to kill a sprout. 

As an experienced Ventura based arborist  we have often dealt with Sycamore stumps.  We would be happy to help you get rid of this unsightly problem.  To do so, our experienced stump removal professionals will first cut down the stump using an industrial stump grinder.  And next, they will dig out the stump and all its roots. We will fill up the hole and ensure that the landscape has been restored.  This will leave your family with a beautiful California yard to enjoy, for years to come.
