Stump Removal vs Stump Grinding Services
When people have trees cut down, sometimes they leave the stump… but most times they take advantage of stump grinding services from companies like Big Foot Tree Service. Stump grinding involves cutting the tree stump down to the surface of the ground. It’s different than stump removal, which removes roots and then the hole gets covered with soil or dirt. With stump grinding, a little bit of the tree still remains in a yard– the generally flat, grounded stump.
Stump grinding is faster than stump removal as it’s not as labor intensive. It doesn’t leave a gaping hole in the ground and is considered to be environmentally-friendly. Meanwhile, the stump can be used for mulching. A tree service company like Big Foot Tree Service uses a stump grinder machine which mechanically grinds out the stump, leaving fine sawdust as a residue. As a customer, you can decide how “tall” or “short” you want the stump ground down to your desired height. Typically, most people want stumps ground to just one inch below the soil level, or even as low as 12 inches underground. Eventually a ground stump mixes with the soil; It levels the ground and can eliminate the need for any filling.
If you do decide to have stump grinding done, be aware that there could be a chance of sprouts and/or regrowth, though it’s highly unlikely.
