Stump Grinding

Tree Stump Grinding Market Harborough

We have discussed the reasons why you may want to remove you tree stump and investigated the options for tree stump removal here.

Tree stump grinding is considered to be a much less disruptive process than full blown removal.

So What’s Involved In Tree Stump Grinding?

We use a machine to shred the stump completely down into small wood chippings. It leaves the root system in place under the soil to avoid widespread digging up of the surrounding areas which is a massive benefit when you wish to preserve surrounding landscaping. During the process wood chippings mix together with soil the resulting mound of mulch will be raked back into the hole. Upon finishing the surrounding area will be left clean and tidy.

Why Choose Stump Grinding Over Removal?

As mentioned, this is a less invasive and disruptive process than full removal. Full removal would involve the use of digger and this is not a service we offer. Stump grinding is a quicker process and a cheaper process naturally. For a more cost effective and faster way to recover the land where a tree once stood, stump grinding is the best solution.

What Happens To The Tree Roots After Stump Grinding?

Whilst stump grinding takes care of the visible remainder of the tree stump the tree roots still remain spread-out for some distance around the stump. After grinding the roots will naturally die and rot away which may take some time.
