Grinding involves cutting down the stump so it is below ground level. Stump grinders use dynamic spinning blades, making them dangerous to you and your property when misused. They also wear out over time, with an associated depreciation cost. When you hire us for stump grinding, you’re paying for ideal risk mitigation via expert help, wear and tear on the blades, and mulching services where possible (when the stump provides healthy mulch material). It’s common for rental equipment to reach $200-300 per day, while professional stump removal services can cost between $50-200 per tree stump or even $2-4 per inch of diameter. Feel free to ask us for a quote to narrow costs down for your removal job.
Using a stump grinder is the key to stump removal. It’s quite effective as far as dealing with buried roots goes. Roots are difficult to access, so the grinder exerts coarse abrasion on the stump, wearing it down until it’s worn through. The abrasion produces mulch and levels the stump out.
The mulch from a stump can be composted and recycled for tree and plant fertilization. Usually, we put the mulch back into the hole that the stump left behind. However, some clients opt to have us take the mulch away to make way for fresh soil. While the wood from a tree we’ve felled, parted from the stump by recent tree removal, we take it away.
There is a chance that stumps can continue living and become host to all sorts of pests, especially insects and infections, especially those from fungi.
This course of action is highly inadvisable. It causes unnecessary strain on your vehicle, and the risk of damage is high because it’s such a misapplication of the vehicle’s capability. Tree professionals never do this. Using a grinder to make mulch solves the problem more efficiently and produces mulch, which is used to return the tree fibre to the ground as a fertilizer.
