Stump Grinding Your Most Cost-Effective Choice For Tree Stumps
Whether it’s because a tree dies, is blown over, or has to be removed because it has grown too big, there is always a stump left in the ground after it is cut down. It just isn’t possible to cut the base of the tree completely flush with the ground. You’re left with three options:
1) Leave the stump in your yard,
2) Have the stump removed, or
3) Have the stump ground down.
Obviously, leaving the stump is the most economical option, but if you don’t like having a stump to remind you of where a tree once stood, or if you’re concerned about the tree regenerating from the stump, you want the stump gone. This leaves you two choices: stump grinding or stump removal.
What’s the difference between stump grinding and stump removal?
Stump removal is the complete removal of the stump, along with the root ball of the tree. With a large tree, the root ball can be massive. Removal requires heavy-equipment like a crane and a truck large enough to haul the root ball away. It also leaves a large hole in the ground (which will need to be filled with soil).
Most landscapers recommend stump removal only if there are plans to replace the removed tree with similar landscaping, as in the case of a row of trees lining the border of a property. The more common scenario for stump removal, though, is when a large tree has blown over in a storm and the weight of the tree has uprooted the root ball.
Stump grinding involves using a high-powered grinder to reduce the stump into mulch-sized pieces of wood. The stump can be ground down a few inches below ground level. It’s then covered with top soil. The rest of the root structure will decay over time.
Since stump grinding requires only a stump grinding machine, there’s a lot less equipment and labor than a stump removal job would require—which is why stump grinding costs considerably less than stump removal.
