I almost don't have words to express how well the work has been done, how well we've been treated and how competitive the cost was!

After major tree removal, landscape improvement work and pine beetle problems, we had upwards of two dozen stumps needing to be dealt with for cosmetic, access (to our barn) and land stewardship reasons. Tony and Veronica and Tony's incredible expertise with his "wifi" stump grinder were truly a GOD-send. He not only did the "big stuff" expertly, he also decimated a bunch of little stumps here and there as he moved about our 3 1/2 acres of woods. AND, he did it a week earlier than expected which doubled the blessing. AND he did it with relatively minimal "side effects" (e.g. disturbing surrounding soil with the movement of his grinder).

Tony is one of those hard-working, small business experts that is the heart and soul of what makes America and, especially, Alabama not just the home of the brave but also of the free. I heartily recommend ESR and welcome giving anyone a personal recommendation (including a "come and see" - if you're in the area).

Keep up the good work. We've not only been blessed to know a business we can depend on but also to have made new friends!

Mr. Howell was so nice. Everything about having 4 stumps taken care of was easy and affordable.

He was here and gone in half an hour! Highly recommend.

I'm usually a do it yourself type of guy. I was looking to rent a system and decided to get a quote from Economy Stump Removal to see if it was worth it to have someone else do the job. I was really surprised at how fair the price was. It would of cost me much more to rent a system, haul it, take out additional insurance, and then take it back. Regan showed up and less than an hour he was done. If time is money he just saved me both. As far as I'm concerned it's a no brainer. I will be using him on future projects. Regan is very knowledgeable and provided excellent customer satisfaction.

Thanks again Regan

It was so nice to deal with an honest, Christian man. He charged a fair price and did not try to gouge me. I could tell immediately when talking to him on the phone that he was a man of his word. I highly recommend him and would definitely use his services again.

I called Mr. Howell and left a message. He called back in a couple of hours even though he was on vacation. He told me he would call at end of week when he returned. He did and gave me a time for the next morning. He arrived when he said he would and did an outstanding job. He was very reasonable and I liked the fact that he followed through and I could plan my Saturday and not have to wait all day on him to arrive. I highly recommend him for stump work. He is professional and very courteous. I am happy I found him.

I'm glad I called Economy Stump Removal. First thing you will notice about Mr. Howell is his personality. He was very easy to talk to on the phone, like talking to a friend. Unlike others, he planned the work to accommodate my schedule. Once he arrived, which was very prompt, his professional service was outstanding. After surveying the job, he quoted me a very fair price. Then, his remote controlled stump grinder went through my gigantic sweetgum stumps like it was butter. It was definitely money well spent. I will DEFINITELY call on his service again and I will HIGHLY recommend his service to my family, friends and neighbors. Thank you and great job Mr. Howell.

Mr. Howell was very helpful in explaining what to expect and how everything would go. His pricing is very clear and the website was very helpful. Would defintely use him again.

Mr. Howell was a pleasant surprise. My wife and I have had a string of bad luck when it came to having people do work for us around the house - projects started and completed outside promised time frame, shotty work, price changes during work, etc - but Mr. Howell was able to break that string of bad fortune. Mr. Howell was fair, on time, pleasant to work with, and exceeded expectations. He was able to work with my tight schedule and get the job done very quickly. If I ever need more stump grinding work done, I will, without a doubt, call Mr. Howell again.

We are new to the area having ...

We are new to the area having recently moved here from Tampa Bay area. Called Mr. Howell to inquire on an estimate. He informed he would be in our area today and would come buy to take a look. He asked if price was right if he should proceed. The price was very good and very fair. In less then thirty minutes he was done. A very professional and personable business owner. Rare today to find. I would highly recommend him!!! Other businesses need to take a lesson from him. Thank you Mr. Howell!!! I will be sending business your way!! Joe L., Trussville




Mr Regan did a wonderful job removing the stumps that were an eyesore. He was professional, informed me of what he will do and when, I did not need to check on him because he inspires trust from the moment you have your first conversation with him. Will highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for a great job Mr Regan!

Mr. Regan is a wonderful, nice and professional man. We called about a stump removal and he showed up ready to work within the hour. His prices were very fair and couldn't have asked for better service. You just can't find service like his anymore. We HIGHLY recommend. Thank you for doing a great job!


Called to inquire at 8, he arrived at 11 stumps were gone by 11:30. He is professional, fast, and very fair in price. Highly recommended.

I must say that Regan Howell was the nicest, most professional worker to ever step a foot on my property. I firmly believe that he is a family-oriented man of exemplary moral character who performs his job to the highest of standards. He was on time, efficient, fast, and paid attention to the details. You cannot beat the quality of work for the price. He grinded around 175 stumps for me and, at all times, considered the fact that I would be leveling the areas with a box blade after he finished – meaning that he took the stumps down well below the surface level. He cut no corners in performing the work. His machine is the most impressive I have seen. It looks like a mini tank on tracks that is wirelessly remote controlled. Many of my stumps were located in wet swampy areas that, to my surprise, he maneuvered through easily even though his machine weighed more than 5,500 pounds. Mr. Howell even took the time to let my 7-year-old take the controls of this $65,000 piece of equipment. My son will likely remember that experience for the rest of his life. If Regan was a general contractor, I would hire him for any future work I had because he is the kind of man I want on my property around my family. Needless to say, if I ever have more stumps to grind, I will call him.

Agreed with all reviews here. He's very nice and professional. Great price, on time, reliable. Call in for tree stumps grinding. Mr.Howell came the next day and did the job. His stump grinder is so powerful! Love the remote control that he use to control the machine! I've never seen this kind of stuff before. I found him on Yellowpages and i'm glad I made the right decision to let him taking care of this job. I was tried to call several guys who do tree stumps grinding service. Some of them never called back. Some of them never answered the phone. Highly recommended. Thank you.

Prompt, professional, very reasonably priced, does exactly what you want with precision and courtesy. Thank you, Regan Howell, for a job well done and for being a good guy.
