Stump Removal & Grinding Service
Does removing your unsightly stumps have you stumped? We understand. A tree's base and root system are easily the most difficult parts of the tree to remove. Most property owners simply take the top of the tree and leave the rest behind. But it's not a harmless decision, leaving it can be a costly mistake.
Rotting or hollowed stumps are an invitation for habitation. Depending on their size, they attract animals as large as raccoons, skunks, and opossums. Mice, rats, and other rodents may find shelter in them too. If pests such as termites and parasites move in, you could face an infestation on your property. If nothing else, you may end up host to fungi that are dangerous to the health of your living trees. For the best results, remove the entire tree at once, base and all.
Trees don't die the minute you cut them down, the stump remains alive. A freshly cut tree will likely try to regenerate itself, and new shoots will grow. While it seems like a good things, we don't recommend allowing them to mature. A better solution is to remove the whole tree and plant a new one. However, there is more than one way to get rid of a stump. Given enough time, nature will surely do the job itself. You could even hurry this process along by covering your stump with compost, but you may just be inviting invasive fungi into your yard. Stumps can also be dug out, but it's backbreaking work. Root systems are massive and reach deep into the ground. Don't ever dig into your yard without first having it surveyed for gas and power lines first.
The final way to perform the stump removal is with a grinder. A machine, of varying size, that is designed for a single purpose. It features a rotating notched blade that spins at high speeds. It slowly cuts and chips away at the wood, turning it into saw dust. After multiple passes, the machine chews the stump until nothing remains. Within time, the grass will grow in its place and you won't be able to tell it was ever there.
