Stump Grinding or Stump Removal
There is another option for your stump that you have other than to grind it and that is to remove it. Both options have their specific pros and cons and the decision you make should be made with the future of your landscape in mind. When grinding a stump our arborist uses a special machine to cut the stump into little woodchips. It is more effective but leaves the roots behind. Stump removal is the complete removal of the stump as well as the roots. This is more time consuming but leaves you with space for new ideas you may have for your landscape.

What Happens If You Don’t Do It?
You may be wondering what will happen to the tree stump if you just leave it after you’ve cut a tree down. If the tree had a disease, not grinding the stump out can cause this disease to spread to the roots of the tree and then to the other plants in your yard. Not doing this can ruin all the hard work you have put in with the rest of the landscape and keeping all the other plants in your yard healthy. Please do contact us if you have recently cut down a tree in your yard and need assistance dealing with it.
