Heavy-Duty Work: Stump Removal and Grinding
Tree removal can often leave you with a resolute stump lodged in the ground—a stump you may or may not be interested in keeping. If the tree was previously ridden with parasites, we recommend removing the stump to ensure these pests don’t spread to neighboring trees or plant life.
Stumps can also present problems by continuing to feed a network of roots whose undergrowth may be disrupting your soil, lawn or garden beds. Even if this is not a particular concern—maneuvering around a cumbersome tree stump can be a challenge while mowing the lawn or undergoing landscaping work.
Taking out a stump generally always makes for a more attractive yard and, if desired, gives you the option to lay a foundation for a new build. Trucks or machinery can sometimes be used to lift a stump from the ground and drag it away—but sometimes the stump is simply too stubborn. Stump grinding alternatively deploys specialized equipment that churns the stump down to a pile of wood chips.
The job requires the professional expertise of a certified arborist familiar with the process and able to ensure that it’s carried out safely and precisely for the health of the property, and in a manner that will eliminate future regrowth. Full stump grinding eventually obliterates the stump until it can be covered with dirt or grass while the roots below are left to erode and decompose. This method of stump removal presents an ideal solution that quickly brings your yard into the condition you have envisioned.
