There are multiple reasons why you should choose to get rid of tree stumps on your property. Clearing out that old stump will clear out space and give you the opportunity to utilize the space whichever way you see fit. If you leave a stump unattended, then after a while it will kick-start the growth of new trees surrounding it which are even more complicated to get rid of once they grow too big. It will also strip the surrounding plants of their nutrients, causing them to grow weak and wilt. Old stumps often contain rot and decay, not to mention they can be a nesting ground for all sorts of bugs and critters. It can also be a danger to you and your friends and family members, as stumps can be easily overlooked and tripping over them is a common thing.
Once you’ve decided that you want to get rid of a stump the next step is figuring out how you want it done. The two services we offer are stump grinding and stump removal.
Stump grinding is a complex process that takes the stump of the tree out without having to remove the root. To do this, we make use of a stump grinder, which is a machine with a spinning blade that cuts into the stump, grinding it up into fine sawdust. This is advantageous because the stump is ground down to the height desired by the homeowners. It can be ground down to an inch below soil level or as much as all the way down to 12 inches under the ground. After the stump is ground up it will eventually mix with the soil which will in turn level the ground, eliminating the need for extra filling. It can happen that the stump becomes infected with something called honey fungus, which might kill the roots of any perennial plants. In the case of honey fungus, it’s a good idea to get rid of any residual sawdust and mulch. All in all, stump grinding is the easier and neater option.
Stump removal, however, is the process of pulling the entire stump out of the ground with its roots and all. This generally demands the use of high-power machines to employ heavy force in order to remove the entire root. Roots generally grow deep, this is why it’s necessary to use enormous amounts of force. This process will leave you with a large hole where the root used to be and is a lot messier than stump grinding. On the other hand, stump grinding doesn’t fully eliminate the chance of growth since the whole root is not removed. With stump removal it completely cancels the chance of regrowth or sprouts.
