Stump grinding…It sounds bizarre to anyone who hasn’t heard of it. But if you’ve ever had a tree removal on your property you’ll know the importance of this service!

Tree removal doesn’t typically include removal of the stump. And getting rid of that stump can certainly be a problem.

Who needs stump grinding?

If you’ve ever had tree removal on your property (or cut your own tree down) there is probably a stump left behind. People want to get rid of their tree stumps for a number of reasons.

For starters, tree stumps aren’t very good looking! In an otherwise neatly landscaped lawn a tree stump can stick out like a sore thumb.

How does stump grinding work?

There’s a few steps to our team’s stump grinding process. First we’ll assess the size of your stump and provide you with a quote for the work. Next we’ll carefully dig out any rocks or debris around the bottom of the stump. This is very important – we don’t want any rocks or pebbles flying out and injuring someone when we start stump grinding!

Next we’ll use a chainsaw (if the stump needs trimming) and saw off the top, bringing it closer to the ground for grinding. Then the fun begins! Our team are fully trained on the most powerful, professional stump grinding gear available.

This powerhouse machine will start stump grinding and move section by section, gradually demolishing that stump and turning it to dust! Soon there’ll be nothing but a hole filled with wood chips and sawdust.

What next?

We rake up the sawdust and woodchips. After that it’s good practice to fill the hole with screened topsoil. If grass is desired, grass seeds can be planted evenly over the top of this, before covering with a layer of mulch. Wait a few months, your grass will be grown and you won’t be able to tell there was ever a stump or hole!

So there you have it, the complete lowdown on stump grinding. As you can tell, it’s best to hire the professionals. Apply online here for a free quote from the A1 team!
