Stump Removal and Grinding

If you ever tried to do it by yourself, you must be aware by now that stump removal and grinding is no easy task.

Here, at Muro Tree Services around San Gabriel and close Los Angeles counties, we trained our staff to the highest standards to easily finish the task by using the latest equipment and complying with the safety requirements. Read on and find out how we carry out the process and where to contact us.

Difference Between Stump Removal and Grinding

If you have a tree stump in your backyard there are two ways of dealing with it: stump removal and stump grinding. The removal fully eliminates the tree. It requires excavating the area close to the stumps, to be able to access the roots as well, as you will need to take them out. This method is normally chosen when the stump seems diseased or rotten.

The second option is called grinding and involves a grinding machine that “crushes” down the stump below ground level, leaving a sawdust residue instead. This method has two main advantages: on one hand, the overall process is quicker than the removal. On the other hand, it doesn’t leave a hole in the middle of your backyard that you would need to fill with soil. It is, however, not always possible to conduct, depending on the overall status of the stump. In addition to that, given that the roots will still be there, it may not be possible to replant on the area.

“Ok but, why do I need to get rid of that stump?” If you are asking yourself that, it is a fair question. Taking down a tree will definitely improve your backyard’s appearance, yet unfortunately, it is not the end of the story: you still need to either remove or grind the stump.

This way, you will eliminate any possible tripping hazards, recover some space you might want for some other planting and prevent fungus or insect infestations, really common on old stumps.

Tree stumps, for example, attract termites and, if untreated, the termites can quickly invade both your home and other living trees.
