Stumpmaster can remove your unwanted roots and out of control Agapathis and Bamboo.
We are able to shorten and lower exposed surface roots that affect lawn mowing and even deeper roots lifting driveways or damaging foundations. We don’t advocate the use of this service where it will be harmful to the tree. It is not possible to do this within the drip line of protected trees as it is illegal. We are happy to stop by and give you a free assessment of whether root grinding is appropriate in your situation. Contact us now for a free quote>
Bamboo root removal
Our stump grinders are also ideally suited for bamboo root removal. This is a comparatively cheap and effective solution to get an area back into a usable state once the tops of the plant have been cut down and removed from site. We are able to grind right through the roots to the soil below.
Like all bamboo removal methods there is always potential that a small amount can re-shoot. This is especially true if there is more bamboo growing nearby. Any re-shoots should be immediately poisoned using Amitrol poison.
For total eradication we recommend cutting off the entire plant at ground level and thoroughly poisoning the roots until it is completely dead. To kill the plant will require multiple applications of a poison such as Amitrol or similar. Once the plant is dead get us in to grind out the roots so you can reuse the area of your garden.
We have found stump grinding to work exceptionally well for Agapathis too. We are able to run the stump grinder through the entire plant; leaves, roots and all. The resulting mashed plant matter and soil is simply raked flat and will quickly biodegrade into great soil. The main advantage of this method is no tipping fees, directly saving you money. For an instant flawless finish a thin layer of topsoil can be laid over the top.

It was a ridiculously hot day and they worked virtually nonstop to get the job completed. It was done exactly as agreed, all timber stacked and manageable and the left tidy.
