Our stump grinding service allows us to grind a tree stump down approximately 6” below grade. We achieve this with the use of a stump grinding machine. Using either a wheeled or tracked stump grinder we will use the grinder fast spinning wheel packed with teeth to effortlessly chew through a tree stump. Once we’ve achieved the desired depth and ground all visible chase roots you’ll be left with a fine wood chip and dirt mix. We rake all the material back over the hole for safety.
We also provide a complete finishing service with either fresh sod of top soil and seed. This service is recommended if you want your lawn to look like there was no tree removal or stump grinding performed.
Stump removal is a service we offer should you be looking at planting a new tree in the tree stumps place. Stump removal requires specialized equipment not often found in the tree care industry. Although it’s not specialized equipment in some industries, an excavator is not commonly seen in this industry. Because we are a full service tree care company, we also plant trees and often use an excavator to perform a complete stump removal to set the perfect environment for a new tree. A stump grinder can not grind deep enough to allow enough room for fresh topsoil under a newly planted tree.
Why a tree stump should be removed
Tree stump grinding is important. After a tree removal the tree stump left behind is most likely still full of life. Leaving the tree stump as is, will allow the tree to regrow. This regrowth is stress growth and may cause your exposed roots to send chutes up all over your lawn. Stump grinding is the solution.
Another reason to not leave the stump is decay. I tree removal was completed because a tree was dead, decay has already started. Once a stump dies it will begin to decay. This makes a great environment for all sorts of critters and bugs. Should the tree stump be close to your house you run the risk of uninvited pests into your home. Stumps next to your house should always be completely removed.
That tree stump in the middle of your yard can be a tripping hazard as well as a lawn mower blade eater. Stump removal and stump grinding will make your yard a safer place for kids to play.
