Stump Grinding Removes Hazards

Many arborists prefer grinding stumps to removing them, since grinding can have less of an impact on the landscape and won’t cause problems with local gas and water lines.

Tree stumps pose many different problems:

  • They can be a hazard for children and others who walk across the yard
  • Tree stumps can be very difficult to mow around
  • They can be unsightly and cause property values to sink
  • Tree stumps can become a home for bees, termites, and other pests
  • They are known to be hosts of tree disease that can easily spread to nearby trees

Stump Grind vs. Stump Removal vs. Chemical Dissolver

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is the quickest and safest way to remove an eyesore from your lawn. Grinding a stump with machinery built for the job is almost always an Arborist’s preferred way of removing a dangerous stump from a lawn. Stump grinders can make quick work of a stump and chip the wood away, even down to the root ball, creating a fine mulch.

Stump Removal

Stump removal is the next most popular choice, as it allows you to replant where the tree used to be, though the larger root network will still be intact. Stump removal isn’t offered by all tree service providers, and we’ve been asked to remove stumps that other tree service providers 1Thankssaid were too big. The risk with a stump removal is slightly greater than a stump grind, as gas and water lines may be at risk when digging around a stump.

Chemically Dissolving Stumps

Chemically dissolving a root isn’t typically recommended, as it poses dangers to people, wildlife, and the groundwater it may come into contact with. We recommend going with either a stump grind or stump removal service, and Gabby’s Tree Service has the tools needed to perform each of those options safely, quickly, and cleanly.
