Get rid of unsightly stumps… call Ottawa Stump Removal today

Ottawa Stump RemovalSpring is the ideal time to clear away unwanted tree stumps. Since 1998, Murray Carson and the reliable professionals at Ottawa Stump Removal have been expertly eliminating eyesores and walking hazards.

When a tree is cut, its stump and root system can remain alive for several years if the roots graft to nearby living trees. As the stump dries out, it becomes a haven for termites, ants, roaches and other pests.

The affordable cost to remove a tree stump now will offset future property damage and improve your landscape, as well as limit your insurance liability from trip and fall injuries.

Ottawa Stump Removal professionally removes roots, tree stumps and hedge/shrub stumps by grinding them into useful mulch that can then be used in your garden, flowerbeds, or composted for future use.

Ottawa Stump Removal is your assurance of courteous, trusted service at reasonable prices, with satisfaction guaranteed work on same day or next day service. Ottawa Stump Removal is fully insured and can handle any size stump in any location, utilizing its specialized stump grinder to efficiently remove stumps without destroying your lawn.

“We grind stumps into mulch, usually 10″ to 12″ below ground, and then back-fill the hole(s) with residual mulch.” When you want it completely gone, call Ottawa Stump Removal at 613-295-0903 or online at www.ottawastumpremoval.com to schedule a free estimate.  EP
