Once the tree removal has taken place, it is often a good idea to deal with the remaining stump.
There are a number of reasons for stump grinding:
- You may wish to create a more usable space in your yard. A grassed area for the kids to play? Entertainment area? Replanting?
- A dead trunk and its old roots are a very tempting place for termites to feast. This increases the risk on your home and property.
- Unsightly tree stumps are downright unattractive. They also make mowing your lawn a frustrating experience.
The tree Stump and roots are literally ground away to below the surface with the stump grinder. This is a machine with high-speed rotating steel teeth that chip it away to a pile of mulch. You can fill the hole with the mulch that is left, or you might wish to use it somewhere else in your garden.
