Enhance Safety: When to Use Stump Grinding

You’ve removed the tree from your yard, but you have a stump left in place. Now you’re not sure what to do about it, especially if you want to use that space for something else. Using a stump grinder may be one of the best decisions you make. It can take an older, large tree stump over 20 years to break down fully. A stump grinder can get rid of it in just an hour or so.

What Is a Stump Grinder?

A stump grinder can help to remove the visible portion of the stump, giving you that flat surface you want without having to worry about removing root systems. Grinders have a spinning steel wheel that helps to grind down deeper into the stump with each movement, effectively grinding up the stump into wood chips.

Why Choose Stump Grinding?

When it comes to tree care, it is often the case that a tree stump is left in place due to its root system. These roots can be very deep, and they may be quite large. Pulling out the stump of a large tree is simply difficult to do. Instead of removing them, many tree services leave them in place, often because it’s more affordable.

For those who want more space, stump grinding is a better option. Not only does it get rid of the eyesore that many stumps are, but it can also help to reduce hazards around your property. Stumps are easily tripped over by those walking by, which could create liability risks for you.

In addition to this, stumps tend to be the ideal place for pests, including termites and other pests, to live. This creates a pest-ridden tree that’s very close to your home. If you have ants, this could be the cause., Some also have diseases, which could spread to other trees on your property if not fully removed.
