Stump Grind vs. Stump Removal vs. Chemical Dissolver
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 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.
