Stump grinding is carried out after a tree has been felled to remove the remaining tree stump. A stump grinder has a high-speed disk that grinds the stump and roots down into small chips and sawdust. This is often used as mulch or to fill the remaining hole where the stump was. Since stumps are big, heavy and usually have deep roots, it’s advisable to hire a tree surgeon to provide professional stump grinding services.
Don’t risk grinding down a stump yourself. Although it’s possible to hire a stump grinder, the task can be extremely dangerous if you lack the required expertise. Stump grinders feature very sharp blades that work at high rates of speed, making them incredibly hazardous. So, rather than risking your health and safety, it makes sense to enlist a professional to carry out stump grinding work.

There are a few reasons why you might want to grind down a stump after a tree has been felled. Not only can it improve the appearance of your landscape and allow you to regain space but it can also prevent people from tripping over the stump and injuring themselves. Tree stumps can be a major hazard if not removed. Stump grinding can also protect against diseases and pests in the stump. Although many stumps will decompose naturally over the years, sometimes suckering can occur, which involves new plants or branches growing from the remaining stump. To avoid this happening, it’s a good idea to arrange stump grinding as soon as possible after a tree has been felled.
