How Do You Remove A Tree Stump?
Have you recently had tree felling carried out in your garden? Once a tree has been felled, the tree stump remains; some people opt to keep these to use as stepping stones, seats or plant tables.
However, a tree stump can lead to suckering, which is when new plants or branches grow from the remaining trunk. The tree stump could also lead to a fungal root rot which can be unsightly.
Removing a tree stump can be a difficult process. It can’t simply be dug up, as stumps can be large and heavy with deep and wide roots depending on its age and size. Hacking at it can be a long and arduous process with little results.
The best way to deal with a tree stump and to remove it, is via tree stump grinding. This is a machine that works to mechanically grind out the main root plate into sawdust. This powerful bit of kit can be easily moved and used in all types of settings.
Stump Grinding in Essex
You can rent a stump grinder, but it is important to note that this is a heavy and extremely dangerous piece of machinery that should only be used by trained professionals. It is recommended that if you want a tree stump removed, you should hire a tree surgeon – such as us! We can provide stump grinding Essex at affordable prices with experienced tree surgeons.
Stump grinding should result in most of the stump and its roots being grinded down and removed. We will get as deep as we can into the ground and roots without damaging the surrounding area, but any remaining roots will tend to rot down.
What Can Be Done With The Remaining Hole?
Once your tree stump has been ground down into sawdust, this can then be used to fill the remaining hole where the stump was. Alternatively, if you are looking to grow in the same area, it can be filled with soil and the remaining sawdust can be turned into mulch for help fertilising the garden.
We can also remove this sawdust if you do not want to keep it and will dispose of it responsibly in an environmentally friendly way.
