Why Remove tree stumps?
Stumps take up space, can be an obstacle to landscaping, look unsightly, and can host root diseases — so it's worthwhile getting them removed.
What is the best method to remove a tree stump?
The best way to remove a tree stump is by grinding and removal — rather than using chemicals. Grinding is quick and effective. A stump grinder chews the stump up, leaving chipped wood / sawdust mixed with soil. This material can then be left to fill in the hole or used as mulch, or we can take it away.
Will the tree stump grow back?
Very few tree species will re–grow from residual roots. We can advise on this.
Do you provide a chemical stump killing service?
Yes, although it is a slower method. It would need to be carried out directly after felling, otherwise the stump will need to be recut before product application.
What other methods of removal do you provide?
For smaller trees, stumps can be pulled out with a winch. A good sized stub on the stump is required for this method. Grubbing out by hand or mechanical mini–excavator can also remove small stumps and the majority of a root system.
What should I expect?
Removing a tree stump can be a noisy and dusty process, so ensure you advise neighbours in advance. How long the grinding process takes depends on stump size.
What can be done when the stump is gone?
Shallow grinding is normally sufficient if you wish to lay turf, but a deeper grind is needed for replanting or landscaping. Let us know your intentions and we can provide a process to suit.
What happens to the roots?
If necessary any prominent lateral roots can be ground down, but please be aware that this will produce more spoil and ground disturbance. Old tree roots remain underground and rot in time.
