Stump removal is beneficial in that it makes the yards more accessible to visitors while also adding beauty to your landscape. Grinding stumps can make space for other plants or trees you might like to add-perfect if you’ve been thinking about landscaping!
When are stump removal and grinding not advised?
Although removing a tree’s trunk sounds simple enough (and is usually pretty helpful), some types of trees are better off left alone after they die off. For example, maples grow multiple trunks rather than one thick main trunk, so cutting down the dead centre will likely mean losing several branches. Oak trees and other deciduous trees with shallow root systems are likely to lose much of their roots when they’re fully removed, causing the tree to die off more quickly or even fall over completely (which could be dangerous for those nearby).
The process involved stump removal and grinding
When preparing for stump removal and grinding, the first thing we do is assess the size of the stump and determine how much grinding depth is required. Then, we remove a small amount of soil around the circumference to create space for equipment access (we use our heavy-duty stump grinder). Our team then removes all of the visible roots without damaging or breaking any tree trunks to reduce potential damage when operating equipment through this area. We then carefully start cutting into each side until we have cut deep enough to grind out most/all root material from within. Finally, we do a quick clean up before leaving the site with your new awesome looking surface!
