Hi my name is Dan Tartick, owner & operated of Peter the Stump Eater in Pendleton. We started in out 1987 as Ace Tree Service, but have recently began to solely focus on Stump Grinding, Bobcat Services, and Firewood Sales.
I stand behind my work and haven't had a single complaint in over 29 years. Why? - because I don't leave the job site until my customers are satisfied. Most my jobs are local and I rely on my customers for referrals, so I do my best to make them happy. Here are just a few of the hundreds of referrals I have accumulated throughout the years:

Peter the Stump Eater grinding 20+ pine tree stumps left over from some trees I cut down last year. We called a few different local stump grinding companies here in Amherst, but none of them would completely remove the stump - stump chips and all. I'm 67 and I can fill a hole with dirt and throw in some grass seed but I'm sure as H%^!! not shoveling out the stump chips from 20 huge pine trees. For a while it seemed like I was going to have to get... view more
Hi, my name is Katie and I live in Amherst, NY. My husband Kenny and I would like to recommend Dan and his stump grinding company Peter the Stump Eater in Pendleton. We had some trees come down in a storm last year and my husband and son were able to saw up the trees but we didn't know what to do with the stumps. My husband tried poison but that didn't seem to do much. Apparently you are supposed to apply the poison within 7 days of cutting the tree... view more
We finally found a stump grinding company in North Tonawanda that takes the time to grind the stump down into the ground. We have tried other stump grinding companies in the past and it seems that after we dig through all the stump chips there is almost always still a stump under there. This makes it impossible to plant grass, which is what we want to do. We have a bunch of huge pine trees in our front year that we have been slowly removing since... view more
We live in North Tonawanda, near Tonawanda Creek, and a trees near the creek bed seem to blow over and get pulled out every few years. I guess the soil covering the root system erodes and when a big enough storm comes along the wind pulls the trees up. For the years I have just been cutting the trees up and leaving the stumps. I have tried calling a few stump removal companies, but they all have stump grinders that you tow behind a truck. The only... view more
If you need stumps removed and live around Pendleton, we highly recommend Dan from Peter the Stump Eater. We found him through Google and sent him some pictures of the stumps with a ruler on them. He gave us a rough estimate over the phone and came out that same day. His stump grinder is awesome! It tore through our stumps like butter. The best part about Dan is that he grinds the stumps deep down into the ground to really get at the root ball. We... view more
We had some trees cut down last year but the Tree Service didn't grind the stumps. We assumed it was included in the cost of the Tree Removal, but apparently not. I don't think they had a Stump Grinder, otherwise I'm sure they would have tried to up-sell us on that service. Our original goal was to remove the trees and plant grass so obviously the stumps have got to go! We found Peter the Stump Eater's website on Google and Dan, the owner, has been... view more
Dan has done a couple of jobs for me and most recently took care of 14 large stumps on my property. It's nice to work with someone who responds promptly and does what they say they will do for a fair price. I don't need to call anyone else. Great job!
Highly recommended!!I found Dan's website on Craiglist, filled out my name and email and asked for a quote on a tree-downing & stump grinding - and got an email back within a few hours with a quote! That's how simple and quick it was to reach out.But even better was the price! I was expecting 2 to 2.5 times the cost, but Dan's rates were so reasonable I had to jump on it. I wasn't even really convinced I "needed" to down the tree in my front... view more
We have lived in North Tonawanda for over 30 years and have used Dan's stump removal service a few times. We refer him to all our friends and everyone seems to be really happy. The main problem with a lot of tree services is they don't show up when they say they will and then they're are impossible to get a hold of. Dan almost always answers his phone and if not he'll call you back that day - he is very professional. It is also a family business. ... view more
Hi, my name is Patricia and my husband and I own a house in Tonawanda. We had some trees removed last year but didn't have the stumps removed because my husband was trying to save money. He thought he was going to burn them all - yeah that never happened. He had a fire going every clear night for a month and barely got through one stump, hah, so it worked out just like I thought it would. So for "his birthday" I called a local stump grinding company... view more

Tree stumps can take 3 – 7 years to decompose and they often times sprout back into an unsightly mess. For whatever reason tree stumps are left behind, they will eventually become an annoyance and need to be removed.
We grind stumps 6 – 10 inches into the ground and we’ll even remove the stump chips for an extra fee. If you want to plant grass, we can help with that too. We’ll bring the lime, dirt, and grass seed – everything we need to get the job done.
Check out our Carlton SP4012 Stump Grinder! It has a Kubota 44HP 1505 Turbo Diesel Engine and is self-propelled so it can fit through a 36″ Gate and navigate difficult terrains.
