Stump Grinding

stump grinding

After painstakingly removing a tree piece by piece, what is left behind is the tree stump that anchored the tree in place. There are usually a lot of questions about what to do with the sturdy tree trump in your yard. Should you leave it untouched or remove it completely like you did the rest of the tree?

The truth is, an old tree stump might seem like a harmless piece now, but it may begin to cause problems the longer you let it remain in your yard. It could be a trip hazard for your family especially if you have kids or pets in your home. An old stump in the yard can also make it difficult to mow a lawn and can be an obstruction for new landscaping projects.

The Stump Grinding Process

You can either choose to have a tree stump removed completely or hire a stump grinding service to mechanically grind the entire tree trump using a tree stump grinder. This is heavy machinery operated by tree removal service professionals. 

The stump grinder is a petrol-powered engine that has a hydraulically controlled arm and steel cutting wheels. The cutting wheels operate at high speed to grind the tree stump to the desired height leaving fine sawdust as a residue.

Tree Stumps Attract Critters  

Leaving a tree stump in your yard is not a good idea. Shortly after cutting down the tree from the place it once stood, the stump that remains in its place will begin to decay. This is a very slow process. In the time that it takes the stump to completely rot in place, it is likely to become a hub for critters of various kinds.

Insects like termites, carpenter ants, and beetles are attracted to decaying stumps and you may soon have a pest problem. These pests may pose a threat to other trees in your yard and to your home as well.

Tree Growth

Another likely consequence of leaving tree stumps unattended to is that other smaller trees may begin to grow around the stump. If left like this for long, you may have to spend some money on eliminating the trees again.

The growing trees may also strip other plants in the surroundings of valuable nutrients. All of these could be avoided if you simply remove the stump.

What Happens to Roots after Grinding?

Stump grinding helps to get rid of the visible remains of the tree. You may have the roots ground to a height of just about an inch below the soil or as low as 12 inches below the ground. But grinding does not remove the old tree roots. They still remain underground beyond the position of the tree stump. After grinding the root continues to decay naturally over time.

It may take many years for all the roots to break down completely. Stump removal is an alternative many people prefer to get rid tree stumps and roots once and for all. But stump grinding is a lot easier to execute and is less damaging on the environment than stump removal. This is why it is a much more desirable option.
