While many people think they can just dig out a stump themselves, they quickly realise this job is always a lot bigger than initially planned! You can spend hours trying to dig out the offending stump, only to find it is way too hard.
Or you may cut the stump off just below ground level, and cover it with dirt. However the bulk of the stump is still underground which can be a breeding ground for ants, termites and other pests.
Over time, the ground can sink once the roots and stump start to rot; or the soil may wash away, so that the stump is uncovered again – either way, it can become a tripping hazard as well as an eyesore on your property.
Using a stump grinder in most cases can prevent the need to use powerful chemicals. Often with just grinding, because the host is dead, the tree will not regrow. Chemicals should only be used as a last resort and even then, by a professional stump remover so that other plants and grasses are not contaminated.
Once the stump is gone a small pile of mulch is left behind, so the area can be replanted or the mulch spread to allow grass to be grown. The area is left neat and clean and ready for your next landscaping project.
Whether it’s a tree stump in the backyard, a new development, or council owned park or footpath, there are many reasons why you might need our expert stump grinding service.
