What Is Stump Grinding?
Stump grinding is the most effective way to remove a stump and the surrounding root system. You might hear about countless other methods, from burning stumps to digging them up. None of these methods are as quick, clean, or reliable as stump grinding. A stump grinder is a specialized piece of equipment that chips away the stump with an industrial-strength carving disc, which looks like a saw blade. The teeth on the grinding discs leave behind nothing but mulch. Stump grinding is typically done to a depth of about 6 inches, but we can perform deeper grinding if you plan on planting another tree in the same spot.
How Does Stump Grinding Work?
Stump grinding is a complicated process that requires training with the machinery and the right skills to operate it safely. That’s why it’s a job best left to the professionals at Rent-A-Monkey. When performed by one of our experts, stump grinding might look easy. Some people even find it satisfying to watch videos of stump grinding online. The grinding wheel oscillates back and forth, cutting away layers of the stump and surrounding roots. Afterward, the remaining hole is filled with soil, leaving a fresh new surface in your yard.
The Benefits of Removing Stumps With Stump Grinding
You might be wondering if it is necessary to remove your stumps. Even if you don’t mind the appearance of a stump, there are many reasons that it is beneficial to remove your stumps. When you decide to remove a stump, stump grinding has even further benefits over other options. Some of the benefits of removing a stump with stump grinding include:
- Increase Spaced and Aesthetics: Old stumps make your yard look shabby and ill-kempt. When you remove them, you will notice that your yard looks cleaner. Homeowners are regularly surprised by how much more open and spacious their yards seem after removing a stump.
- Eliminate Safety Hazards: Sometimes, the smallest stumps are the most dangerous. When you have a small to medium sized stump, it poses a serious tripping hazard to anyone walking around your yard.
- Prevent Rot and Infestation: Stumps attract all sorts of pests and sources of rot, mold, and mildew. When a stump in your yard becomes compromised, the infestation or rot could spread to other trees or even your home.
- Recycle the Stump: With stump grinding, you can recycle the mulch made from the grinding process, giving the wood from your tree a second life.
