We measure a stump from its widest points at ground level (not from the top of the stump).
Before any digging or grinding is done on your property, Mama’s Stump Grinding recommends you call 811 to have a utility operator come out and mark underground utility lines.
811 is the national call-before-you-dig phone number. Anyone who plans to dig or grind should call 811 or go to their state 811 center’s website a few business days before digging. You can do this to request that the approximate location of buried utilities be marked with paint or flags so that an underground utility line is not hit unintentionally.
811 protects you and your community! Hitting a buried line while digging or grinding can disrupt utility service, cost money to repair, or cause serious injury or death.
