Tree stumps left behind in a garden are certainly unattractive. Not only do these affect the overall beauty of your landscaped property, they can also bring in so many safety issues. Stumps can cause accidents, may be infested by insects and other pests and so much more. In many cases, simple DIY stump removal may not work to completely get rid of a stump, especially if you’re dealing with a fairly large one. If you encounter this kind of problem, it is best to call for professional stump grinding.
Stump grinding is mainly done by licensed professionals because expertise and proper tools are necessary. It is very uncommon for property owners to have a stump grinder stored in the garden shed especially if they don’t have plenty of trees regularly falling down or being removed. If stump removal can be done on your own even if you aren’t a tree expert, the same can’t be done for stump grinding.
Professional Stump Grinding Knowledge and Equipment
A stump grinder is considered a power tool that can be used to remove stumps that cut down trees leave behind. There are some stump grinders that are handheld and may be used for smaller stumps. Some are attached to heavy equipment such as a backhoe or bobcat machine. Those attached grinders are best for larger stumps. Most stump grinders are large as a lawn mower, sometimes even bigger. It requires expertise to operate.
It typically has a cutter wheel with teeth that rotates to cut and essentially grind a tree stump. Stump grinders must be handled by professionals because the blades can be very sharp and may cause accidents. While some property owners opt to rent our stump grinders when they wish to DIY their landscaping needs, most would rely on tree contractors as jobs like these can get very tedious and needs precise and accurate operation.
Call an Expert Tree Contractor for Stump Grinding
If you’re going to rent one, then best to call a tree contractor instead. You will most likely be spending around the same amount. When an expert helps you out, you can be sure that the stump grinding job will be done properly and safely.
A stump grinder would destroy the stump that appears on top of the ground. You may have to dig around the remainder of the tree’s roots if you want to remove the tree stump completely. This is most recommended because some trees may still grow back if you don’t remove all of its parts that remain on the ground and under the soil. Furthermore, if you leave these parts behind, the remaining parts of the tree may be infested by insects.
