Humorous cartoon aside, stumps in the lake are serious!  People die because of hidden, lurking stumps every year. Sure, there is a place for them in the ecosystem, but navigation lanes, next to docks and the middle of recreational boating areas are not among them. It is no longer necessary to tolerate these hazards, the STUMPBOAT has arrived


Our stump boat is the solution for ugly, dangerous stumps:


Our custom built boat can remove  stumps from around your dock and along your approach channel.  This portable, self-contained, entirely from-the-water process, removes the tree remnants to the lake bottom, or up to 11' below the water level- without disturbing the lake bottom or the shoreline! We float the equipment in and float the stumps out.



A lake full of stumps or only a few; large diameter or small, this boat can handle them!  Our boat is maneuverable and can operate equally well in fairly shallow or in deep water.


Boat lanes

Navigation channels

Lake perimeters

On lakes, rivers or ponds are among the services we can provide.

In 2011 a drought griped Texas and lake levels were down several feet- the silver lining?  Some people recognized that opportunity was knocking and called STUMPBUSTERS.  No longer lurking inches below the surface, the dangerous stumps were standing proud and were easy to locate!

One property owner guaranteed us a hundred stumps and to email other property owners on the lake about our service.  We made the trip to Texas and worked for nearly a dozen property owners, removing more than 350 stumps; property values improved and parts of the lake became safer for boaters, swimmers and skiers.  We've made two additional trips since that first one and anticipate more, perhaps as soon as the fall of '16.  We left behind many happy customers; we can come to your lake too!

Fall/Winter 2011 - Lake Livingston, Onalaska, TX.  The Trinity River Authority observed, examined, studied and scrutinized our operation and issued a license which allowed us to cut and remove stumps from the crown jewel of their river system.  We cut stumps for several customers before the water began rising; we expect to return when the water again recedes.


January 2012- We returned from our 4th trip to East Texas, for "encore performances" at Lake Conroe and Houston County Lake.  Several hundred more stumps will cause no bodily harm or equipment damage...


Winter of 2015-  Cut 1,000 stumps on a private lake in South Georgia for a ski area.


Summer of 2015-  Cut approx 1,500 stumps on Lake Oconee.


Fall of 2015-  Cut stumps for a property owner living on a neighborhood lake near Monroe, Georgia.


Fall of 2015-  Cut stumps to create a boat lane at an Arkansas State Park.


We have a long (and growing) list of satisfied customers, so references are available upon request.


Please check out our FAQ and Gallery pages for more information, then call or email- I would welcome an opportunity to discuss how STUMPBUSTERS may be of service to you and your property.


Note: If you don't hear from me within two days, assume for some reason I did not get your message and please resend-  I promptly return calls and messages.
