About Us

Northern Beaches Stump Removal is a family run business and operates side by side with The Tree Smith, our tree care and management services operation.  Run by Mathew Smith, a fully qualified arborist with going on for twenty years experience in the tree industry, and assisted by his partner Alex, both operate the mighty Bandit Model 2250XP stump grinder, affectionately named Gerda; well, shouldn’t every trusty machine have a name?

Our stump grinder is run using wireless remote controls, making it easier and safer as it enables the operator to stand safely behind screens whilst also having the flexibility to move around to gain the best visibility.

Although considered a medium sized stump grinder in the industry the Bandit 2550XP has a 44HP engine which is more than ample for grinding large stumps with ease and speed. The permanent four wheel drive combined with a low centre of gravity means our stump grinder has the stability to access the hard to reach stumps that other grinders of her size or larger may stuggle with.
