When you’re clearing a property for construction or other purposes, chances are that you’re going to be dealing with at least a few trees standing in the way. And while cutting down and hauling away these trees might be part of the solution, you might also be left with an ugly stump in your path.

What You Need to Know About Stump Grinding

Luckily, stump grinding can resolve this problem easily. Here’s what you need to know about it:

  • It is easier and quicker than stump removal. Where stump removal would involve using force to pull the stump from the ground with incredibly strong machinery, stump grinding is much easier to accomplish. A stump grinder has a powerful rotating blade that quickly grinds the stump into small wood chips with minimal effort. By the end of the process, the stump will be ground deeply enough that you can even put concrete on top of it.
  • You don’t have to worry about the tree growing back. While stump grinding leaves the roots behind, it’s nothing to be concerned about. Even though the roots won’t be removed, they’ll deteriorate naturally over time and become part of the soil.
  • It is environmentally friendly. Stump grinding is noninvasive, so it won’t disturb the soil. In addition, the small wood chips it creates can be used for mulch afterwards, which helps to lower soil acidity and provide nutrients to other plant life.
