Collins Mountain Grading provides a wide array of services.

  • Land clearing (usually small areas with few trees larger than 12 breast height) for building sites, gardens, fence lines, farm roads or enlarging yards.
  • Land grading to level or improve landscapes, or to solve drainage problems.
  • Backfilling, spreading dirt, gravel and topsoil.
  • Ditch digging for footings, water lines, and French drains.
  • Driveway grading and construction.

Road and Trail Construction

Tree and Stump Removal

A white pine died near one of our fences. First we cut through the roots (left), but when we pushed on the loosened tree (second photo) it threatened to fall on the fence, so we attached a rope to it and pulled it into the driveway (third photo). The last photo shows much of the debris gathered in the grapple.




Brush Clearing

Before and after backyard cleanup

The owner wanted to make a fresh start with landscaping and to build a deck on to the house.

With the stumps removed and the land smoothed the field on the right is now ready for seeding.
