Stump grinding is a technique of removing the stumps remaining after trees have been removed. The stump grinding technique is the most cost-effective, safe and reliable way of removing unsightly stumps from your property. Grinding the stump not only it does the best job but also considerably minimises the amount of damage inflicted to your property as a result of the removing process.
Stump Removing Techniques
There are several different stump removing techniques that can be employed. Differences that should be taken into consideration when trying to choose one these techniques, beside the costs, should be:
- – The amount of time it will take to get rid of the stump
- – How environmental safe they are
- – The amount of effort required to complete the job
- – The impact it will have on your property
- – The sight of the end result
An old fashion way employed to get rid of a stump by annihilating it from inside out, is to ignite a fire within the stump. This method might seem cheap and easy but there are lots of risks involved. It will take days to complete, during which time it will need constant supervision not to start a fire that will damage your property or any structures nearby. Also the smoke coming from the burning stump can be quite annoying, bothering you or your neighbours.
Another technique practised to remove stumps is by using chemicals to destroy the stump from inside out. This method though it can take a long time to complete, depending on the chemical used. Also is not environmentally friendly and it might be damaging and rough with the soil underneath and other neighbouring plants or vegetation.
You can use a crane to pull out a stump from the ground, but this technique will leave broken roots behind, that might become a hindrance later on, plus the ground around the stump will be seriously disturbed.
Yet another way of removing a stump is by using large equipment, which will force the stump out of the ground. This way though, the foot print resulting on your property from the removing process will be the most significant
Stump grinding is a really effective way or removing a stump, by grinding it down below the surface. Utilising this technique will assure you of a minimal impact to your property, the result will be immediate and environmentally friendly.
Stump Grinder Jobs and what to do with Mulch
After you have had a stump grinder in to remove the tree stumps you want gone there is often the question about the remaining Grindings that are the remnants of the completed job. Depending on the type of tree stump that the stump grinder has ground, the remains are a mixture of wood chip and dirt with the majority of this mixture being made up of the wood chips.
Often time’s people choose to leave the mulch where the old stump was for a while and let it settle. Other times when the stump grinder is finished the mulch can be spread over a garden area where you don’t want the weeds to grow. It can also be disposed of by the client.
At Alex Tree and Garden Services when we have had a Stump grinder onsite we do offer a service where the grindings can be removed. We also can re-soil and re-grass a site if the client requires it.
When a stump grinder has completed a big stump job there can be a significant pile of grindings left over and we are finding increasingly that clients want this taken away. There is an additional charge for this above the cost of just having the stump grinder, grind the stump and leave the mulch behind but it is very reasonable and in line with industry rubbish removal rates.
So if you have any other types of waste or rubbish you want to get rid of, it could be an ideal time to utilize our other services while we are onsite and get rid of that other stuff that’s been lying around, so feel free to ask us about this extra service that we provide as we try hard to provide the complete Stump Grinder solutions to our customers.
