Stump Grinding: How Does It Work?

For most of us, our home is the biggest purchase we’ll ever make. With an investment like that, most of us care a lot about taking care of our homes, both the inside and the outside. In that way, your yard can be a point of pride, and a beautiful landscape is a great place for you to be able to enjoy your home. For that reason, most people don’t want ugly tree stumps loitering on their property, or making it difficult to mow the lawn and keep the yard tidy. It can be a safety issue, and can make a yard look unkempt. From time to time, most of us will need to have trees cut down as well, whether for safety concerns, or new landscaping endeavors, and once that’s done successfully, you’ll want the rest of the tree trunk removed as well. 

If you’d prefer not to have a decaying stump on your property, you may want to call in a company to remove it, or grind it and remove the chippings. These methods will get the tree trunk off your yard, and will leave you with a clean palette to landscape over. We’d be more than happy to restore your yard to its level state. 

Stump grinding works by using a high powered grinder machine, that uses a rotating saw wheel with cutting teeth, that when turned on to high levels can cut through the wood, and chip the stump away piece by piece. This grinding method removes the stump efficiently, without any unsavory methods like using chemicals, burning it, or attempting to pull it out. Stump removal is different than grinding, and can be much more invasive, and much more expensive. It requires using large tractors and machinery to pull the trunk up by the roots, which is difficult, pricey, and can damage your lawn. Stump grinding is non invasive, non damaging, much more affordable, and easily done. 

We recommend it for people looking to get tree trunks removed from their properties, and want to get it done swiftly and efficiently. If cost is a concern, grinding is a far more affordable method than removal. It’s even more affordable than renting a grinder, and doing it yourself most of the time.
