What is “stump grinding”?
Stump grinding is a stump removal method that uses a special stump grinder tool. The stump grinding tool uses special metal “teeth” to “chew” the stump into small wood chips. This is absolutely the fastest and safest way to remove a stump from your property. These wooden chips and piles of dirt are all that is left after a complete stump removal. The wood chips and dirt can be kept on site to be used as mulch at other locations on the property, or we can remove it for you. A stump is usually ground at least 4” into the earth below if it will be replaced with grass, and even further if it’s to be replaced with another tree or plant.
Stump Removal Methods
Every stump removal service we provide is performed by a trained arborist. We use up to date, regulation stump grinders. Our stump grinders are built for industrial and professional use, and are therefore some of the fastest on the market. To be able to grow grass over the previous location of a tree stump, it is recommended to grind down at least 4″ below ground level. In addition to the stump it is possible for the roots to be ground up. This can cause potential harm to the surrounding property, however, and it is best to consult with our arborist on site if you have a specific request concerning your roots. It is not necessary for you to be home during a standard stump grinding service.
Why should I have my stump removed?
It is a common mistake to think that stumps are harmless and that it’s unnecessary to remove them. Stumps should always be removed as soon as possible from your property. Stumps that are left behind after tree removal will rot and decay, often becoming infected. This infection can spread to any healthy nearby trees. Grinding a stump is the least harmful and most professional way of removing a stump from your property. Stump grinding is also the fastest way to remove a stump, all other methods can take anywhere from days to weeks.
