About Stump Grinding
Reasons people consider stump grinding may include, but are certainly not limited to:
-Sodding over a previous tree location.
-Grinding the stump to severe it from the roots in order to facilitate later excavation.
-Clearing the way for shallow excavation or for construction.
-Preventing suckering of the living stump (deciduous only).
The Stump Grinding Process:
-The stump is chewed into wood chips with a self-propelled machine to a depth of 8"-12" below the ground level at the stump.
-The resulting chips are neatly raked into a mulch pile of earth and wood chips where the stump was.
-The mulch pile is left for the client's use or is leveled off to ground level and the excess removed.
-Mulch is handy for fill, compost, or spreading around gardens.
-Surface roots may be ground away as well if requested.
-Wood chips may be left on the jobsite if so desired.
-Wood chips may be purchased for delivery. Please call or email for details, indicating location and type of chips
(deciduous or coniferous).
