Stump removals

At Oxford Direct Services, we can carry out the removal of stumps from trees we  have removed, as well as those that have been recently discovered or have been left untouched from previous removals.

Why are stump removals needed?

Stumps left behind from fallen trees can cause a number of issues, aside from unpleasing aesthetics.

The stump left behind can potentially cause regrowth or root rots, and depending on its positioning can also cause a great deal of hassle and inconvenience in terms of access. An unneeded stump can take up space and pose a potential safety hazard unnecessarily, and there is also the potential for infestation, with wood-boring insects such as ants, beetles and termites being drawn to the left-behind stump.

What will we do?

  • We will carry out a site-specific appraisal to determine the best method of extraction, taking into account things like the speed and efficiency of removal, safety, along with how to minimise site damage and ensure responsible disposal.
  • We’ll conduct a scan to assess any underlying factors that could impact removal such as power lines, cables, or drainage.
  • We’ll determine the best method of extraction, and whether or not there is a need for use of chemicals.
  • We will layout plans to ensure a safe and practical removal is carried out, considering the size of the stump, accessibility, and location.
  • We’ll safely remove the stump and fill in the leftover hole to ensure safety, and safely dispose of the wood removed.

See What Our Customers Say

The Children's Allotment is a new start-up  not-for-profit organisation and we received an excellent service which gave us great value for money from Direct Services. The team were friendly and gave helpful advice that went above and beyond. We were really pleased with the work they did.

The team doing the work were a pleasure to be around and ended up being part of our opening event where they worked with our students to finish off the last bit of planting. 
Fitzwaryn School has a new area that is fit for use all year round and we would not have achieved this result without the hard work and dedication from ODS.
