our history

Owner Chris Nicholas moved from Pittsburgh to Charleston shortly before Hurricane Hugo devastated the Lowcountry in 1989.

People were removing trees and leaving stumps, so Chris and his wife, Jayne, a native of Charleston, bought a stump grinder and began Charleston Stump Stompers.

Within three years they had grown their company from a stump removal service to a full-service, expert tree company. To date the CSS team have been serving residential and commercial customers in the tri-county area for over 25 years.
