Although we have seen people use a tree stump as a serving table, most people choose to remove a tree stump in order to:
When a tree is removed due to decay, pest or disease infestation, the same problem will be present in the stump as well. Removing the tree stump will remove the potential for spreading those pests or diseases to your remaining trees.

K&D Tree Masters of Long Island, New York operates a variety of stump grinding equipment to suit the size of the stump and the access requirements of your property.
Sometimes a large backhoe or a digging machine will just not fit on your property.
Our stump grinders are small enough to access most areas on your property, and will not leave you with a large hole in the ground after the stump is gone.
The stump grinder will grind the stump into mulch.
For the stumps of healthy trees, consider using the mulch for organic composting or ground cover to return nutrients to the soil.
If you prefer, we will remove the mulch.
