Stump Removal And Stump Grinding Challenges

What is Tree Stump Removal?

Termites love wood that is on top of and inside the ground. A stump must be removed if you want to plant, landscape, install or replace a fence, or perform construction in the same area.
The stump continues to grow (determined by sucker-growth) and so do the roots, which may be pushing up cement areas, house foundations, fences, etc. A stump may be removed to allow drainage or because it is obstructing a waterway. You simply may not like seeing the stump there.

In these situations, techniques that will help to sustain the integrity of the slope and make the stump less visible. In most cases, the stump can be rendered completely invisible.

How are tree stumps removed?

Stumps are normally cut fairly close to the ground. However, sometimes large tree stumps are left very tall due to the difficulty of cutting low.

When trees are cut down to ground level or above, they leave a stump where nothing can grow except mushrooms and shoots from the still living root system. In some cases, you can transform it in a table or something useful for your summer garden, but in most cases its just defiling your beautiful garden. If that’s the case, don’t you think its time to call for a professional. Stump grinding improves the visual aesthetics of your property allowing you to reclaim the space and replant your gardens even with mature trees.

What is stump grinding? 

Once a tree has been removed, its actual stump may still be buried deep in the ground. If you do not remove it in time, it may sit there rotting and causing a range of issues. For one, it can easily become a home for ants, termites, and other pests. It can also get in the way of your landscaping and paving plans, or worse, it can trip children and adults alike. If your garden or ground has become a graveyard of unsightly (and unsafe) tree stumps, you need professional stump grinding, such as tree surgeon services.

Stump grinding involves the use of a machine to grind down the tree stump to below ground level. This prevents the tree from re-shooting and removes the visual problem of a dead stump.

Modern stump removal equipment is light, maneuverable, quick, and non-intrusive. Even the most inaccessible places are no trouble at all for us. In fact our machines are able to go through areas as narrow as a doorway.
