Stump Removal & Environmental Responsibility

We take the environment very seriously

At Flatirons Stump Removal, we are committed to keeping our environmental impact as low as possible. Here are some of the ways we achieve that goal:

Focused on local

By focusing on serving the northwest Denver/Boulder area where we are based, we are able to reduce our carbon impact spending less time driving to your property. Based near Highway 36 between Denver and Boulder, we are less than 15 miles from communities such as Arvada, Berkley, Boulder, Highlands, Henderson, Lafayette, Louisville, Northfield, Northglenn, Regis, Stapleton, Thornton, Westminster, and Wheat Ridge. While most other tree services and stump companies are clogging up I-25 coming from Littleton, Aurora or Highlands Ranch, Flatirons is already nearby. Reduced drive time = reduced carbon footprint.

Small and light equipment

Unlike the large tree companies, who would arrive at your property in a gas-guzzling behemoth the size & shape of a trash truck, Flatirons utilizes the small, fuel-efficient (and we like to think svelte & subtle) small block Toyota Tundra pickup and a lightweight trailer. The result is a significant comparative decrease in fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions.

Sharp and smart equipment

While other services rely on heavier machines with higher horsepower (and increased CO2 output) our compact, lightweight and efficient cutter relies on a technologically advanced cutting head that cuts faster and more efficiently with less effort. It is robust, and packs a punch, but doesn’t rely on brute force to hammer the stump to submission. Instead, it uses a specialized, sharp, high speed cutter head.  Reduced run time, reduced carbon output and fossil fuel consumption. (Since our machine is also lighter, the impact on any vegetation surrounding your stump is also less.)

Carbon sequestering

Our cutter allows your stump to give back by turning it into nutrient-rich, moisture retaining mulch that breaks down over time to become a source of available nutrients to nearby landscape vegetation. This process bolsters vegetation growth and promotes CO2 scrubbing from the atmosphere.
