Well, as the name describes, this procedure is concerned with getting rid of those unsightly stumps that were left after trees were chopped down. You may have tried to redeem them and use them as seats or tables. Or you just didn’t have the time to think about them, but now you do. There are many ways to go around getting rid of stumps. The following post discusses stump grinding and removal.

What is Stump Grinding?

The process of grinding down tree stumps can be done by hand or with the help of machinery. It may seem like a simple task, but there are many ways to do it incorrectly and end up with an uneven surface that will need to be fixed later on.

Stump grinding is generally equipped for domestic tree work like landscaping and backyard design. With the use of the rotating cutter head of the stump grinder, it will cut through the roots and will turn the entire stump into sawdust. The area is then raked to be able to remove excess debris during the grinding process…

What is Stump Removal? (or Stump Grubbing)

Stump removal is the process of removing a tree stump from the ground. It is also commonly referred to as stump grubbing.

Stump removal is usually done by cutting it off below the surface of the ground. This prevents roots from growing back and allows for easy removal of the stump. The most common way to remove a stump is with a chainsaw, but other tools such as an ax or a grubber can be used too. Read more at Plateau Trees

Both processes need to be done with caution. There are other stump removal procedures such as stump burning and using chemicals. Each of these has its own risks such as fire hazards and chemical pollution in your yard. You’re better off with either stump grinding or removal.

All tactics of stump removal should prevent the tree from regrowing. Using an excavator or pulling the trunk out with a truck are both ways to remove a tree stump, so they fall into the category of stump removal…

Should I Really Get Rid Of That Stump?

Stump Grinding And Removal: The Way To Improve Your Yard's Aesthetics

Tree stumps, as you may be aware, can become natural seats or tables if they are cut well and have the right height. However, they can be problematic for landscaping or construction projects. They may not just be unsightly, but they can be an obstruction to possible construction works.

The most obvious benefit of stump removal is that you’ll no longer have to stare at an unsightly tree stump in the middle of your yard. Tree stumps also present a substantial risk of tripping and injuring yourself, especially in the winter when they’re covered by snow. Stumps in your yard may be a nuisance when gardening or mowing the lawn, too.

As tree stumps decay, they may draw wood-boring insects such as termites and carpenter ants to your yard. This is dangerous because once the insects are done eating away at the stump, they’re likely to move on to your home and cause serious damage. A decaying stump may also grow mold and fungi that is harmful to your yard. Therefore, removing a tree stump is beneficial for both the aesthetic and the health of your yard. Read more at Pro-Tree

Perhaps the worst kinds of tree stumps are the ones that are easy to miss at first sight. These present a greater problem than the ones that have a part of the trunk above the ground surface. All in all, you need to deal decisively with tree stumps before winter sets in.
