If you’re like most people, you probably don’t want a stump sticking out of the ground after removing your tree. It can be an eyesore on your landscape, and you may have to mow around it. Old stumps are also the perfect host for fungi and can attract unwanted pests such as termites and ants. There are a variety of ways to remove a stump, but grinding it is the preferred . A stump grinder is a machine that uses a wheel of teeth to chip away at a stump, turning it into (essentially) mulch. During a standard stump removal process, we grind an area approximately 1.5 times the width of the stump to a depth of 6″-10″, depending on the presence of rocks and other obstructions. We can grind more extensively if requested. When finished, a mound approximately three times the size of the stump remains. This material is left on site for your use or disposal. At your request, we can remove these grindings. What we're capable of can be limited by the terrain and other factors that may be present, so stump grinding must be determined on a case by case basis.
