Stump Grinding

For us, stump removal is an integral part of tree removal. Stumps left behind will decay and may become a breeding ground for fungus and termites as well as being an eye-sore. We have machines that convert the stump into mulch so that you can replant, re-turf or build over the very site that the tree has been removed from. Stump grinding transforms a stump into mulch which can be used to fill the empty space left by the tree. We have a number of different sized machines large enough to remove stumps from open spaces and small enough to fit through your front door or side gate.

Stump Removal or Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding involves mechanically grinding down the remainder of the stump. The advantage of stump grinding is that the level at which the stump is ground down is adjustable. This means that it can be ground down to only 2 inches underground or up to 12. It’s also an efficient solution that is fast, affordable and environmentally sustainable.

Stump removal may be necessary if the tree’s roots have become infected or a dangerous hazard to the landscape. It also safeguards against the possibility of regrowth.

Why Should I Remove My Tree Stump?

After your tree has fallen or you have cut it down it is important that you hire a tree care professional to remove your tree stump. It is important to remove your stump for several safety and civil reasons which include;

  • Invasive species habitation: Insects, rodents, and reptiles find tree stumps to be the perfect hideout within your garden and while they may appear to be living there innocently some species will destroy other vegetation in your garden or even infest your house.
  • Safety hazard: Depending on where your stump is it can be a serious safety issue. If it is placed within open space people may trip over it or a lawnmower may attempt to mow over it and effectively ruin the lawnmower. On the other hand, if it is based within the vegetation it can be a serious safety issue that may cause injury for professional tree carers and young children playing in the garden if they are unaware of the stump.
  • Root damage to your property: While the tree may be gone ridding you of majority of the eyesore, tree stump removal is incredibly important because underground roots will continue to grow (as they still believe they are attached to a tree) and essentially damage other areas of your property.
  • Space: Tree stumps take up precious space in your garden that you could probably use for other gardening purposes. Thus, you should hire professional tree stump removalists to free up the space in your garden.
  • Valuation: It is no uncommon opinion that tree stumps are an eyesore, so if you are thinking about selling your property it is best to get rid of the tree stump unless you want to face having a significantly lower valuation. Unlike other tree services, tree stump removal is surprisingly cost-effective and will pay for itself when it comes to selling the property.
