What Happens to Roots After Stump Grinding?

There are times when the health and life of a tree can’t be restored, and in order to protect the safety of you and your family, it’s best to fully remove the tree.

Why Opt for Stump Grinding Services After Tree Removal?

The biggest advantage of stump grinding is that it eliminates the danger associated with having a stump in your yard, along a pathway, or anywhere else that it could cause a safety hazard. When our tree specialists at Rent-A-Monkey Tree Services complete a full removal of the tree stump and roots, we open up the space to be used in another, more constructive way. You can plant a new tree, place furniture or plants there, or use the space for a garden.

Stump removal also creates space in your yard or garden, even if you don’t plan on putting anything else in the space. Removing the stump and roots once the tree is gone also prevents wildlife and pests from nesting in the empty stump and causing problems in and around your home. Once the tree stump and roots are removed, the material can be ground up and used for mulch, or cut into pieces for kindling, so it won’t go to waste.

How We Remove Roots After Tree Removal

Once we have removed a dead tree from your property, we can also remove the tree’s stump and roots using specialized, professional equipment. We dig around the tree stump, exposing its roots. We then use a stump grinder to chop the tree stump up into smaller, more manageable pieces. When those pieces are removed, we use a chainsaw, hand saw, or hatchet to cut out the exposed tree roots. While this is labor-intensive,  it’s to your benefit to make sure that all of the roots have been removed so you have a safe space to use.
