There’s only one
reasonable way to permanently remove tree stumps
– use a Stump Grinder
It’s not easy to do properly and it’s dangerous when done by
someone without the right training and protective gear.
But when done by professional like us, grinding will
completely eliminate those unsightly tree stumps &
blown over root-balls.
Why Remove Tree Stumps?
People remove tree stumps for a variety of reasons. A large
stump is usually not a very attractive or desirable sight, so Grinding your
stump out will not only improve the look & aesthetics of the landscape, it
will also make it possible to plant a new tree and makes the grass easer to mow.
Stump grinding also discourages the
growth of harmful fungi and poisonous mushrooms which can spread. Many tree
stumps sprout shoots from there stumps, so it is necessary to grind them out.
- How long does it
take a tree stump to rot away if I leave it alone?
- It really
depends on five things: size, species, moisture levels (in shade vs sun),
insect activity, fungi & mushroom growth and structure of the stump.
For example, a 24” oak tree stump in a sunny yard might take 18 to 23
years to decompose naturally, whereas the same stump in a shady moist
environment might take 14 -19 years to rot away. Just realize that it’s
not a quick (or pretty) process.
Our machine was specially designed to fit through a 36 inch gate – that’s a standard-sized gate or opening so we
can probably get through your gate without any problems
How Our Stump Grinder Removes a Stump
- Our stump
grinder has a large rapidly rotating cutting wheel with teeth that bites
into the wood of the tree stump and shreds it into mulch. Operator
controls the cutting depth of the Stump grinder by moving cutting wheel down
& from side to side. Once the
stump has been ground, we push all the mulch back into the hole so there
isn’t a hazardous crater. Some larger stumps will leave a mound of chips
behind, mulch that can be used as landscape mulch.
