Luckily for you, our crew have the skills and expertise you need for minimally invasive, swift, stump grinding service that’s hassle-free every time.

What is Stump Grinding?

One of the most common routes to stump removal is stump grinding. The stump is (literally) ground out of the environment. It’s often the method of choice for stump removal as it minimizes regrowth risk, removes the stump with little disturbance of the surrounding environment, and the landscape can be immediately reworked if you wish. It’s almost as though the problem stump was never there! Stump grinding is a highly specialised skill, requiring extensive training and safety equipment. It should never be attempted as a DIY job!

This is far from the only stump removal method there is, however, and others may be best suited to different environments and situations. It’s always best to let the experts guide you on what is best for your garden’s needs.

What about digging out a stump?

Stump removal via digging is, indeed, a strategy that can be used. It won’t suit most circumstances, however. The largest issue is the sheer size of the ‘crater’ a stump can leave- the roots often occupy 4 to 7 times the size of the actual stump. As you can imagine, that’s quite a hole! It’s also prone to leaving viable pieces of the root system behind, which can lead to regeneration.
