Expert Stump Grinding Services
Stump grinding and removal are effective ways to get those pesky tree roots and old tree stumps off your property or out of your garden. Stump grinding is your best manual stump removal option if you have large stumps that need to be removed or multiple stumps. Stump grinders use a powerful rotating blade to chew away and strip down the wood from your old tree. The blade teeth chop it up into small pieces that can be later turned into mulch or wood chips if you desire. Stump grinders are large, heavy machines – so before you get started, be sure that you have a way to transport it to your property and back from the rental facility. It is also imperative that you use safety equipment, especially safety goggles. These machines create a lot of flying debris!
Before you start up the stump grinder, you will want to clear away any rocks or debris near the stump location. You’ll then use your chainsaw to get the stump down as close to the ground as possible. Ground level is ideal! Next, wheel the stump grinder above the tree stump and refer to the operating instructions. You will probably need to dig anywhere between two to six inches below the surface. Once the hole is vacant, you can fill in the hole with wood chips that you just ground or topsoil, and your stump is gone! Using the wood chips is a great way to repurpose that material, and it makes for excellent and nutrient-dense mulch.
It is also important to note that stump grinders available for rent to homeowners or business owners will not be as powerful or effective as those that a professional arborist can get their hands on. This alone may make it worthwhile to call in a professional instead of tackling this project on your own.
This can be a more involved machine to operate, so do your research before starting this project or call in professional help.
