Stumps left after a tree has been removed often need to be removed. They can be frustrating eyesores, especially if they are attached to any running roots stretching throughout your landscape. Stump removal also reduces insect activity, mitigates new and unwanted growth, and provides room for future landscaping.
If you have an unsightly stump on your property let us know, we are happy to help. Stump grinding is the most effective way to finish the tree removal process. Our trained team members are able to safely maneuver our top of the line equipment to effectively remove your stump and exposed roots. Please note, however, that once a stump is removed you won’t be able to plant another tree in that same spot again.
Our stump grinder is 35 inches wide and 7 feet long. The grinding wheel is 10″ wide and is located at the front of the machine. The wheel is serrated and fitted with metal teeth that spin and work from the top of the stump drilling down to 4-6″ below grade. When the machine has finished grinding, you will be left with a mulch pile where there once was a stump. This mulch pile is often 20-30% larger than the pre-existing stump. This mulch can be left on site to backfill the depression left from the stump removal.
Any excess mulch can be used in surrounding landscaping, or if you’d prefer we can haul it away for an additional fee. Some stumps may be located in areas that make stump grinding impossible, if that is the case, our Certified Arborists can go over alternative methods of removal.
