Trees are not only beautiful, they are also the longest living organisms on earth and are one of the earth’s greatest resources. Trees can:

  • Keep our air supply clean

  • Improve water quality & prevent erosion 

  • Create shade and reduce energy costs

  • Increase property value


They are also renewable, biodegradable, and recyclable!

Proudly serving Boundary and Bonner counties



Shawn Smith bought his first piece of tree service equipment in 2015 and mostly by word of mouth, has been expanding his business since. Raised in Bonners Ferry, his education in tree care started back when he was a kid, helping his dad do fire mitigation work and continued during high school, working for a local tree service company.

After graduating, Shawn ended up in Coeur d’Alene, with a job in the same industry. It was during this time that he saw a need for stump grinding, so he decided to buy a machine and offer the service along with his full-time job.

Given an opportunity to move back home a few years later, Shawn was fortunate to quickly turn CDA Stump Grinding into a full-time business in 2019. Now, with a growing crew & line of equipment, his company has extended their services to also include property cleaning, lot development and much more.


His favorite part of his business? Leaving a job site looking much improved and like they were never there!

Shawn is married to wife Meg and has two children, Raegan & Clyde. He’s grateful for abundant work and great customers making it possible for him to raise his family and grow a thriving business here in beautiful Boundary County.
