Stump ground completely out to 30 centimetres below level, before client creates a parking area.

Working at 86400 grinding stumps after the timber was extracted by these two magnificent Percheron heavy horses.

10 metres of Leylandii removal at Oradour Fanais, the ground was stone free but wet. The client and his gardener assisted, it was good team work.

This was a huge chestnut stump that was blocking the entrance to the property. It was 3 metres wide under the gravel surface.

The stump grinder is quite precise in that you can grind almost up to a wall without damaging either the wall or the machine.

Large stumps, like this oak, are reduced to chipping and dust then mixed back into the hole with the earth leaving the ground ready to reseed with grass.

I'm finding that I'm receiving inquiries from client's that are out of my usual advertising catchment area because they've found me via Google. My area seems to stretch from the coast in the Vendee down to the Bergerac area, all of Poitou Charentes and the Limousin.

Mr Dave Cropper is an absolute delight. He works professionally, diligently, safely and courteously. The equipment he uses is first class and he knows his trade. Did a superb job very reasonably on a multitude of stumps we wanted to get rid of. They disappeared leaving barely a trace, just good compost to re lawn or plant. All without the mess of using a very heavy digger. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Absolutely first class job as promised. 3 large poplar stumps have now disappeared along with all the blighters trying to regrow everywhere. David Cropper made a very reasonable quote for the job and I have no hesitation in recommending his services. many thanks and mind those knees!

Area covered upto 110kms from 86400.

We have the machines to successfully remove tree and hedge stumps leaving only chippings that can be either mixed back into the ground, or used as a mulch. We only need an entry of 1 metre 40 to access the stumps.  Fully insured with Aviva, contract number 77282190 and are registered with the Chambre de Commerce. In an area where the possibility of debris hitting and damaging the owner's property, i.e. windows, cars etc, we put protective screens around the work site. The large stump grinder has rubber tracks which creates a low pressure footprint on the terrain, minimising the damage to lawns and sensitive planted sections of the property.
We speak both English and French, so communications aren't a problem if the need to liase with clients' neighbours is necessary.
We work alongside a number of tree surgeons, and can recommend who will be suitable for working in the client's region.
