Is a tree stump ruining the look of your landscape? Or perhaps it’s become a trip hazard or you’re worried about it growing new plants or branches? In any case, it’s time to contact Essex Tree Brothers – the leading company for stump grinding in Billericay. We can remove stumps in an effective manner, using highly powerful machines to dig as deep as we can in order to remove not just the stump but the roots too.
Tree stump grinding involves grinding down the tree’s main root plate, leaving fine sawdust which can be used in a variety of ways. As well as being used to fill in the hole where the stump was, it can also be used as mulch or sawdust.
We’ve been providing stump grinding services in Billericay and beyond for several years, building a fantastic reputation for ourselves in the local area. Our customers know that they can come to us and receive a professional and reliable service every time.
Stump grinding is advisable if you have been left with an unsightly stump after having a tree felled. Not only does removing the stump enhance your landscape but it also eliminates the risk of someone tripping over it and hurting themselves. It can also prevent suckering, which happens when new plants and branches form, causing a new tree to form.
Stump grinding is also worth considering if you want to be able to use the land for an alternative purpose. Whether you want more space for alfresco dining with friends or you’d love to install a pond or pool without the old root system getting in the way, stump grinding is the ideal solution.
This is a common question we get asked here at Essex Tree Brothers. Many people want to know if they really need the service, or if it will decompose on its own eventually. Whilst it is true that many tree stumps decay and disappear after a certain number of years, it’s impossible to know when this will occur. Some can take over 20 years to decompose whilst others will actually go on to grow into new trees. Since a tree stump often takes a long time to decompose naturally, it’s usually best to opt for stump grinding.
You may be able to grind down a tree stump yourself using rented equipment, however, this isn’t advisable. A tree grinder can be extremely dangerous, with rapidly turning blades posing a serious risk to your safety if you don’t operate the machine properly. We recommend hiring experienced tree surgeons like Essex Tree Brothers to carry out the work. Our team follow all the necessary safety precautions to ensure that it is carried out as safely as possible.
