Stump Grinding

What is Stump Grinding? 

Following tree felling, you will be left with the remaining tree stump. To prevent suckering (where new plants or branches will grow from the remaining trunk) or fungal root rot, it is important to remove the stump from the area.

Stumps are often large and heavy with deep and wide roots, so it is important to enlist professional stump grinding services. We can do this following our tree felling or at a later date, depending on your convenience.

Tree stump grinding consists of mechanically grinding out the main root plate to leave a fine sawdust which can either be used as mulch or to fill the remaining hole where the stump was.

Who Should Carry Out Stump Grinding? 

While stump grinders can be hired, it is highly recommended that you enlist the help of experienced and professional tree surgeons such as Essex Tree Brothers. Stump grinders can be incredibly dangerous and should only be operated by experienced and trained professionals who are confident in using this machinery.

Stump grinding should be able to remove the majority of the stump and its roots and we will aim to get as deep as we can without damaging the surrounding area, but remaining roots will usually eventually rot down.

Our experience in providing this service for both domestic and commercial clients over more than ten years means we can ensure tree stump grinding is done in the safest and most responsible way. Asking us to provide this service following tree felling is the most efficient way of avoiding any issues down the line.

We are happy to leave you with the remaining sawdust and mulch for your garden, or we can take it with us free of charge.
