Have you ever had the displeasure of a tree stump stubbornly entrenching itself in your land and refusing to be moved? It’s a major annoyance, especially considering the fact that they appear to be innocuous and easily dealt with. In fact, they can be highly problematic, and even represent a significant risk for your property’s greenery and general outdoor spaces. If you’re in a situation where you need to have a stump removed from your site, it’s best to employ the use of our stump grinding services rather than try to manage things yourself – DIY solutions generally end in tears. For any such situations that you experience either now or in the future, Huntington Tree Service Experts is ready and waiting to assist you. If you need any questions answered or you’d like to book in an appointment, our customer service team is available over the phone.
The majority of people look at tree stumps and see nothing dangerous or hazardous about them – and that’s easy to understand. They don’t look like they could really cause any damage, but that’s not the case at all. The truth is, tree stumps are perfect launch point for a couple of malicious forces in your outdoor spaces. The first of these is suckering, where fungal growths appear at the base of the stump and spread across the vicinity. The other issue that you might face is root disease. Both of these forces are difficult to manage once they get established, so it’s wise to take preventative action by removing the stump.
Grinding Over Removal
If you’re looking to get rid of a tree stump on your property, generally you have two options. You can either have a stump grinding service carry out the work, or a stump removal team can step in. Removal is an effective way of getting rid of the stump, but it’s a destructive process that leaves a major scar in your yard. A stump grinding procedure is still going to get rid of the tree stump, but your outdoor space is going to be in a much better condition at the end of the process.
At our company, we have a number of stump grinders available to be used for a wide range of situations. The size and dimensions of tree stumps can vary considerably, so it only makes sense that you’d use a stump grinder that is appropriately sized for that specific stump. Regardless of the type you go with, our stump grinding service works by attacking the main root plate of the stump, before grinding it into a sawdust residue. This makes the removal of the rest of the stump that much easier.
It might be tempting to try to get rid of the stump on your own, but that’s not likely to end well. The fact of the matter is that the tree stump is too heavy and cumbersome to move without mechanical assistance (more often than not), and any DIY approaches, like burning out the stump or using chemical killers, is only going to damage the rest of your outdoor space.
