How To Remove A Tree Stump?

Our professional tree surgeons will first evaluate the landscape in which the stump is situated and acquire further information about the tree, for example, whether it’s hard or softwood and the diameter of the stump. Once we have implemented all appropriate safety guards to protect the surrounding area, the grinding process can begin.

Our equipment will then essentially chip or grate the large stump away. Due to the design of the grinders, we are able to grind into the ground which is what creates a flat surface area that can be re-paved or re-turfed.

Digging Out Tree Stumps 

Depending on the situation of the stump and the information about the tree, we may implement an alternative method to stump grinding; digging out tree stumps. When our team proceed with digging out tree stumps, we will begin by digging around the roots to expose them, moving around the circumference of the stump until all of the roots around the tree have been exposed. From here, as part of the procedure for digging out tree stumps, we will then cut up and pull out the roots to remove as much of the root system as we can. We will then remove the stump and chop up the wood that remains and finally, we will fill in the hole.
