Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is the next to last step in the process of tree removal. It is the use of a machine that has carbide teeth that are attached to a wheel that spins at 7500 RPM that grinds the wood of the stump into a pile of mulch…that we can take away, or leave and spread. Customer’s choice.

We grind stumps at the time of removal, or can be called in to grind down preexisting stumps. We use a large stump grinder, and have access at a smaller one to get into smaller places if necessary.

Stump Grinding

Q: Why grind the stump?

Old stumps can be generally ugly. They decay, and can end up housing rodents and bees, and insects of all kinds, especially termites. If a stump is ground down with our stump grinder, it is easier to plant or build something else in its place. We can apply seed, so the “hole” in the lawn is replaced by grass.
