Our Story

One of our dear friends is an arborist who now lives out of state. Prior to his move, he taught us all about stump grinding. Considering we live near Portland, whose nickname is literally “Stumptown”, we figured we had to start a small business. Since then, we have removed tens of thousands of stumps successfully. Natives of Estacada, we have been fortunate to assist our community in recovering from the 2020 wildfires and 2021 ice storm. We believe in community. This business is how we make a living, supporting our two awesome kids. We truly care about running a high quality business and do that through taking good care of our customers.
