Why remove tree stumps?
Stumps need removing for various reasons, but usually, the stump is in an inappropriate location, preventing a landscaping, construction or replanting project.
They can also be trip hazards to pedestrians or unwanted obstacles for vehicles or machinery.
Other times, clients remove stumps as they see them as unsightly, mainly when they begin to decompose.
What is the best way to remove a tree stump?
There are a few ways to remove a stump, but if you want it done quickly, a stump grinder is generally the best solution.
You can remove stumps mechanically using hand tools or heavy machinery, but these methods are either labour-intensive or require suitable access.
If you’re not concerned with the presence of the stump but wish to prevent regrowth, we can administer Eco-Plugs.
Eco-plugs contain herbicide, which is slowly released into the remaining stump, limiting the chances of regrowth.
What is a stump grinder, and how does it remove a stump?
Stump grinders are powerful pieces of machinery which grind the stump into smaller fragments (or Grindings) using hardened teeth on a spinning disc.
The cutting disc will sweep from side to side, progressively reducing the stump in height to below ground level.
There are many types of stump grinders, ranging from small pedestrian 13hp versions to huge tracked models larger than a SUV.
What happens to the Stump Grindings?
The grindings (or Fragments) produced will be used to fill the hole left behind from the stump.
Initially, the grindings will mound above ground level, but they’ll mulch down over time, leaving a flat surface ready for turfing or replanting.
Can you take the stump grindings away?
Leaving the grindings onsite is standard industry practice; however, we can organise removal for an additional cost, which is at our discretion.
No matter the type, size or location of your stumps, at Grayshott Tree Service, we have the machinery, know-how, and insurance to get the job done.
