What is Stump Grinding?

After tree removal, part of the stump remains. Stump grinding is the process of eliminating this piece with a stump grinder. This machine has powerful rotating blades that rip through the wood, cutting it into small pieces (wood chips).

The arborist guides the blades over the stump until it is ground down, well below ground level. The wood chips can be used as mulch around the garden and to fill in the hole left by the tree trunk.

Benefits of Stump Grinding

Tree stumps look unsightly and they can even be a hazard in your yard. The main benefits of stump grinding include:

  • Prevent re-growth. While you may think your tree stump is dead and lifeless, it can actually start to re-shoot.
  • Stop it from rotting. A rotting stump attracts fungus, termites and other creepy crawlies. These pests can pose a health risk to pets and kids.
  • Environmentally friendly. While you could pour chemicals onto your stump to get rid of it, these can seep into the surrounding soil and cause damage to the environment. Stump grinding is quick and chemical free.
  • Remove a trip hazard. If left, an unsightly tree stump can become a trip hazard.
  • Quick and efficient. Stump grinding is a fast process when done with the right, professional equipment.
  • Make space in your yard. Get rid of an ugly stump and make room to grow a new tree or beautiful plants.

Once the stump grinding process is complete, our team swings into action for a thorough cleanup. The remnants, a mix of fine wood chips and soil, are carefully raked back over the area where the stump once stood. Any excess debris is redistributed around garden beds. However, it’s worth noting that this mixture isn’t ideal for immediate planting due to the high nitrogen content from the wood chips, which can limit oxygen for new plants.

Several factors come into play when determining the cost of stump grinding. The size of the stump, the depth of grinding required and the accessibility of the site are key considerations. Obstacles like rocks or other debris can also affect the price due to their impact on the grinding process. During our inspection, letting us know your specific reasons for stump grinding, such as re-turfing, construction, or termite prevention, can allow us to customise the service to your needs.

We believe in stump grinding as a cost effective and less invasive solution. Our advanced stump grinder can reach up to a meter underground, effectively removing the majority of the stump. In contrast, stump removal involves extensive digging with heavy machinery, which can disrupt the surrounding landscape and lead to additional costs.

Absolutely! Our team ensures a thorough grind of the existing stump, removing most, if not all, of the root system. This preparation creates a fertile environment for new plantings or trees to flourish where the old stump once stood.

The stump grinder transforms the stump into fine mulch, which can be put to good use. It can enrich garden beds or be backfilled into the void left by the stump. This ensures minimal waste and maximum benefit to your landscape, keeping it looking its best.
