James started Stumpmaster around ten years ago and operated out of Albany with a strong focus on the North Shore. As the company grew it branched out into general tree care where it traded as Tree King covering most of Auckland before this part of the business was sold off in 2016. Upon moving to Warkworth James saw a strong demand for site clearance, stump grinding, mulching work and relaunched Stumpmaster Warkworth in its new location in Dome Valley. Since then Stumpmaster has completed hundreds of jobs for a long list of happy customers from in and around the Warkworth Area. James's thought-out, practical approach and strong attention to detail has helped cement the company's place as a useful member of the local community. Stumpmaster is a proud member of the One Warkworth Business Association. Buy Local!
