Stumps, stumps and more stumps.

There are very few companies in the UK today who can match the experience and expertise of Kingwell when it comes to stump removal and processing. From huge-scale projects involving tens of thousands of stumps, to single stumps in difficult access sites, we do it all.

With nearly four decades of de-stumping and processing behind us, we have developed the machinery and techniques to handle every type of de-stumping project. If your deadline is tight, we have the resources to cope. If your ground conditions are rocky or very soft, we have the custom-built equipment to get the job done. If your stumps have metal or other contamination in them, we can still shred them and if you need everything taken off site, we can process your stumps into biomass and often give you a credit for the material as well to offset against your costs.

Stump Grinding

This method is ideal when controlled removal is required and when only the stump itself needs removing.

Excavator Tool Carriers

Our custom-made auger system can process large numbers of stumps on soft or rocky ground. The auger shaves the stumps into peelings that slowly degrade back into the soil. It has many advantages for commercial forestry applications.

Excavate & Process

We operate primary (slow-speed) and horizontal shredders that process every type of stump into saleable end-products. Large volumes of stumps of any size, can easily be turned into biomass or other products like landscape cover, if required.
