A stump is the bottom part of a tree left protruding from the ground after most of the trunk has fallen or been cut down. Undertaking the removal process by yourself can be expensive, time-consuming, and outright dangerous. Buying the machinery and equipment to effectively grind a stump instead of hiring professional tree service outfit will use up a lot of unnecessary spare time and cost you more. Wouldn’t you rather watch a hockey game or spend time with your family? These tasks should be carried out by trained professionals such as our team of arboricultural experts.

Benefits of Stump Grinding

We can deal with infected or diseased stumps and help you keep your other plants from suffering the same unfortunate fate. Here are a variety of benefits from removing a stump:




Enhanced Aesthetics and Space

Tree stumps are unattractive. They take up space and yard look crowded. They can even decrease your property value or turn off potential buyers in a real estate transaction. After the removal process, you’ll find yourself left with a clearer space and increased aesthetic value of your property. It gives you the room to improve your landscaping and maybe even consider adding a flower bed, BBQ pit, pool or planting a new tree.

Free From Unwanted Growth and Pests

When a stump is left after cutting the tree, there are unwanted plants sprout up such as weeds that grow around it and absorb the water and nutrients in the soil. It can be damaging to the nearby valuable plants who are left with very few nutrients for proper growth. It is also very appealing to insects and rodents.

Aside from protecting your family and plants from unwanted insects and pest infestations, it also improves the safety and accessibility of your lawn. For residential areas with children or seniors at home, it keeps them safe and free from stumbling over the stump, thus removing potential dangers. And when you’re mowing the lawn, there will be no need for you to mow around the stump and inconvenience yourself. We can also remove trees​ for you.

Dangers of Tree Stumps

One of our most commonly used methods and area of expertise is stump grinding. We use specialized machines which to grind away the stump.

There’s also the option of using chemicals on your stumps, which will accelerate the process of natural tree decay. However, it may take many months or years before the it’s fully gone, leaving your children or pets at risk for the entire tree rotting period. It may be great for removing a large number of them but there is a risk of soil contamination so it is not really recommended by experts.

Grinding is still the better option for homeowners who want their stump to disappear right away. We have the removal tools such as a chainsaw, trunk grinder, cutter, and other job specific machines and equipment.
