    Extremely positive experience with Atlanta Stumps. The initial response to our inquiry was prompt. Devan was on time, did a nice job grinding the stumps, and cleaned the property well after. Pricing was reasonable. If we had to do it all over again, our choice would still be Atlanta Stumps!

    Atlanta Stumps is very easy and pleasant to work with. They walked me through the whole process and explained it in detail. Devan did a great job removing the stumps, specially the one close to the gas line. The pricing is great and overall, I had a great experience. I will definitely be recommending this service.

    What a great experience! I needed some stumps removed after a few trees and shrubs were removed from my yard recently....Brenna followed up with me immediately after the tree work was completed, and scheduled the stumps to be taken care of. Great job, nicely done, cleaned up debris afterwards...mission accomplished.
