After the heavy lifting of removing a tree piece by piece is done, what’s left behind is the sturdy stump that once anchored the tree in place. Removing a stump through grinding provides many benefits such as keeping your yard safe by eliminating tripping hazards. Grinding out the stump also eliminates the habitat for termites, ants, bees, snakes, and other animals to maintain a beautiful lawn.
Stump grinding is much less intensive than stump removal. In this case, arborists use a machine to completely shred the stump down into small woodchips. Grinding is much more efficient than stump removal, however, it does leave the tree’s roots behind. If the stump is large, the chip pile produced can also be quite large, but the chips can be used as mulch for other plants in your landscape. Give us a call to learn more.
