Among the various services we provide at Anderson’s Tree Service is stump grinding. This is exactly what it sounds like, the process of slowly grinding down the leftover portion of a tree stump along with its root system. Stump grinding lets you finish off the process of removing a tree so no trace of it is left behind.
Why Consider Stump Grinding?
There are actually dozens of reasons to have our professionals take care of stump grinding for you. Having a stump on your property can pose a serious safety risk, particularly if you have small children who play on the grass or the stump is in an area that you walk through at night. If you used traditional stump removal methods, there would be a hole leftover, creating its own safety risk. Stump grinding, on the other hand, doesn’t leave behind a hole so you don’t have to worry about safety or filling it in.
A tree stump can also interfere with your landscaping plans since you can’t plant new trees, bushes, or flowers if there is a stump or its roots in the way. With stump grinding, we remove the last remnants of the tree and create a smooth area that you can plant in just like any other part of your property. As a bonus, you can reuse the small pieces that result from stump grinding as natural mulch that keeps your landscaping healthy.
In addition to safety risks and landscaping issues, having a stump on your property can actually cause new growth to sprout. Since you removed the original tree, you probably don’t want a new one in its place. A stump can also attract insects, especially if it starts decaying. Stump grinding can eliminate these potential issues.
Can You Do Stump Grinding Yourself?
Theoretically, you could rent a stump grinding machine from a hardware store or other similar business and grind the stump yourself, but this isn’t a smart idea. If you don’t know what you are doing, a stump grinder can be dangerous to operate. You can also cause accidental damage to other parts of your landscape with stump grinding. A professional, on the other hand, will be able to grind your stump quickly without damaging the flowers, trees, and other plants nearby. Professionals also already have the protective gear on hand to keep their eyes and ears safe and will be experienced using the stump grinding equipment. They know how to prepare the area and carry out the grinding efficiently so you can get on with your life. You don’t even have to take time out of your busy day to do it yourself.
