Tree Stump Removal Services in Smyrna
Why you should hire a tree stump removal service
Everyone has seen those pesky tree stumps at one point or another. When you plant a new tree, the stump of the old one is still there, and it can be unsightly and even dangerous if your kids play around it. You probably already own what you need to get started! Many stump removal companies out there will grind down these unwanted pieces of wood into nothing more than sawdust for less than $100, but we don’t feel like everyone should have to spend their hard-earned money on something they could do themselves with just some fundamental tools.
It’s important to remember that not all stump grinding services are created equal. Most use power equipment such as stump grinders, stump cutters, or stump pullers to remove the stump of your tree. These devices work very well on most stumps, but you might find that they are not effective enough for some more challenging cases and can leave a mess behind.
If you want to avoid these issues and save yourself time and money, we recommend using our manual process. With this method, we use an all-natural chemical compound that breaks down the wood over time instead of breaking it apart with power tools. This is better for protecting against damage from rot because there’s no heat involved, so it doesn’t cause any harm in addition to being more cost-efficient!
Types of services provided by tree stump removal services
Stump grinding is one of the most common stump removal techniques. It involves using a stump grinder to cut and grind away at the stump until it can be easily dug out with an excavator or backhoe. The stumps are then ground into sawdust that can be used as organic fertilizer for plants, sold to nurseries for use in their propagation process, or disposed of on-site since they’re considered green waste by many municipalities.
When stump grinding isn’t possible due to some unique circumstances regarding your tree’s location or health status, you may have no other option than stump removal via excavation which usually requires larger equipment such as high lift excavators and bucket trucks equipped with hydraulic chainsaws capable of cutting through hardwood trees.
An alternative to this process is a chemical treatment where an enzyme eats away at the stump over time, taking weeks or months depending on concentration and weather conditions. However, if you want immediate results, you should opt for a different method, such as using professional equipment that can cut through roots quickly and effectively with minimal damage done to surrounding areas while also leaving behind no evidence afterward.
Tree stump removal services will come equipped with all types of saws ranging from hand tools like chainsaws to stump grinders which are saws that have teeth on the sides of the blade to cut into dirt and roots. If you opt for stump removal by grinding, then your stump will be ground down using a stump grinder until it is flush with the surface level of your yard or lawn. This service might not remove all traces of evidence because there could still be some stumps left behind, although they won’t rise above soil anymore after being removed in this way.
How much it will cost and what is included in the price
Stump removal can be a somewhat complex process. The stump grinding cost will depend on the size of your tree stump, how deep it goes into the ground, and what type of equipment you have available for stump grinder hire in Brisbane. In general, though, here are some guidelines:
If it’s just an average-sized tree stump about 30cm wide and 20cm high, then expect to pay between $150 -$200 depending on where you live; if somebody comes out from us, that’s around 100km or more away from our operating area then we will need to add another $50-$60 onto the price as well. It would also mean that there was enough demand for people hiring stump grinders in your area for us to dedicate a vehicle up there on the weekend.
If its anything more significant than that, then you are looking at stump removal prices between $300-$400 depending on how deep it goes into the ground; if somebody comes out from us, that’s around 100km or more away from our operating area then we will need to add another $50-$60 onto the price as well.
Stumps with root systems attached cost slightly more because of some additional labor involved, but this is usually pretty rare and shouldn’t make too much difference overall (around $50-$100 extra for stump grinding).
The process of removing a tree stump from your property
Many stump grinders can be used to remove a stump from your property, each with its benefits and drawbacks.
The most common way of removing a stump is by grinding it out using three primary tools: a stump grinder, an air compressor, and chipping wedges. A stump grinder is used to cut away at the top of the stump until there’s nothing left but chips while also cutting through any roots for them not to regrow later on down the line. An air compressor pumps oxygen into these machines, so they run faster than what would happen if you provided manual power alone (although this method doesn’t require much effort). Chipping wedges work similarly because they are used to cut through the stump by breaking off large chunks of it so they can be removed. This process is much faster than using a stump grinder alone. However, chipping wedges are extremely dangerous because you could potentially lose limbs if not appropriately handled.
The second method for removing tree stumps from your property is manually digging them out with shovels and pickaxes. There’s less risk involved when doing this since no electricity or gasoline is needed, which means fewer things could go wrong than other methods. Still, it does require more time spent on each stump due to its lack of power tools being used to get the job done effectively. For those who don’t want their yard space taken up by massive holes left behind from stump removal, this method may be a better choice than stump grinding.
The third and final way to remove tree stumps is by burning them out using fire. This process works best when the ground around the stump has already been loosened up with other methods, making it easier for the flame to penetrate through everything to get rid of all woody matter left behind. It does take quite some time for these flames to burn off all remnants of your old stump thoroughly, but once they’re gone, you’ll know that there’s nothing else lurking underfoot or aboveground that could cause any damage sometime down the line.
