Questions to ask yourself; Should you go for stump grinding? How long might it take? What is the benefit of removing a stump? Should you do yourself or employ a contractor?

 

WHAT IS A STUMP GRINDER?

A stump grinder is a powerful tool used to remove tree stumps from the ground. It is a specialised machine that uses a rotating cutting wheel to grind away the wood of the stump, leaving behind nothing but soil and roots. Stump grinding is an effective way to get rid of unsightly stumps without having to dig them out or use chemicals. It can also be used for other purposes such as creating space for landscaping projects or preparing land for construction.

Stump Grinding is something usually done by professionals because of the dangers involved.

HOW TO USE THE WOOD FROM THE TREE STUMP GRINDING

Stump grinding creates lots of chips of wood (lots!). You’ll be surprised by the actual amount, but they can be used as on-site-mulch or added to your green waste can. You will also have a hole left after the stump grinding, since you have just ground out the stump volume that filled it.

You can shovel the wood chips into the hole to decay, or you can import soil and fill the hole so that it’s even with the surrounding ground.

Sometimes local businesses or groups (schools, nurseries, parks) may welcome you with open arms for you to drop off the “waste”.  And you will be seen as helping out the community. However, this does involve you collecting it on site in the first place. Ideally, leaving it on-site is the preferred choice.

Stump grinding is a great way to get rid of those unsightly stumps that may be taking up space in your yard or garden. Not only does it make your outdoor space look neater, but it also creates a lot of wood chips which can be used as on-site mulch or added to your green waste can. You’ll be surprised by the actual amount of chips created, so take advantage and recycle them for future use!
