RESTORE YOUR LAWN to its natural grade After Tree service
If you’re planning on having a tree removed, you’ll have to make a decision about what happens to the stump after the tree is gone. Stump grinding is the process by which the arborist removes the stump to below ground level. This is especially helpful if the stump is in your yard, and it needs to be restored to lawn condition for mowing. Leaving a rotting stump in the yard will also lead to insects such as carpenter ants, earwigs and termites.
We encourage homeowners to strongly consider stump grinding once the tree is removed, so they are not an eyesore in their yard or an obstacle to mow around.
Stump Grinding Capabilities
Can remove any sized stump or major surface roots from your yard. Our compact grinders can access your yard through a standard 36” gate to allow access to hard-to-reach backyard stumps.
We usually grind down to a depth of 4 to 6”, enough to install topsoil and seed. We can grind lower if you are replanting a tree in the exact same location. Normally we leave the resulting mulch, however for an extra charge we can remove the mulch, put in topsoil and seed to re-establish your lawn faster.
Advantages of Stump Grinding
What does stump grinding look like?
A stump grinder looks like a massive circular saw attached to a giant mower. It’s a machine that is driven through the yard to the stump while the operator walks behind it. Once the machine is running, the blade rotates like a saw and grinds the wood into mulch. The operator guides the blade back and forth across the top of the stump while standing behind a protective shield. Typically, a stump can be completed quickly depending on the size.
