What is stump grinding?
When a tree is cut down, due to old age, disease or simply being in the wrong place, the stump is usually left behind. Many property owners don’t want the stump sticking up in their garden or yard, but they also don’t want the roots dug out and the whole thing removed, as that would leave an enormous hole! The alternative is stump grinding.
Stump grinding involves using a special stump grinder or stump cutter machine. The machine has a circular blade that repeatedly chips into the trunk, gradually reducing it to ground level. Once the stump has been ground down, it doesn’t regrow. Over time, the roots will decay into the soil and the tree remains gradually disappear. The landowner is then left with a flat surface.
The wood chips that are generated by the stump grinding process can be taken away or used for garden mulch or in a wood-burning stove.
What are the advantages of stump grinding?
Stump grinding has several advantages, including:
- Less chance of regrowth. A stump may start to sprout, creating unwanted foliage. In contrast, a ground stump won’t regrow – the remaining roots decompose back into the soil.
- Removal of the stump reduces the risk of insect infestations. Stumps are an inviting habitat for all sorts of garden pests. Removing it helps to keep your garden free of unwanted grubs, beetles, termites and similar.
- Stumps can be trip hazards, as well as look unsightly. Stump grinding leaves a flat surface that can be easily repurposed.
- No disruption to the surrounding area. Unlike stump removal, the ground surrounding the stump remains intact.
