Stump grinding gets rid of that unsightly stump left after a tree has fallen or been removed. A stump left in the ground isn’t only unsightly, it can become a hazardous obstacle in your garden, can attract pests — such as termites, spiders and snakes — and can even grow back! It can also be a breeding ground for mildew when it starts rotting and in large stumps, can later become a hazard after the wood has rotted and left an unstable sinkhole. We’ve frequently come across property owners who have finally removed a stump after it has become a costly problem for them due to one or more of these issues.
During the stump grinding process, complex machinery is used to grind the stump into small pieces that we can take away, or you can use as mulch if preferred. We grind the stump down to below ground level and this usually removes all of the wood matter; however, if there is any stump remaining after grinding, we cover it with soil, leaving the area looking like it never contained a tree. After the stump grinding process has been completed, the tree is completely dead and any remaining wood or roots below the ground will naturally decay over time. This means you can use the area for other purposes, such as building or planting other plants.
