Stump Grinding & Removal
Stump Grinding & Removal in the Lehigh Valley
Tree stumps are the natural by-product of removing a tree. The process of stump removal, or grinding, is the next logical step after having a tree removed. Most property owners do not want a dying, decaying tree stump in the lawn and landscape. Not only are they unsightly but they can often harbor dangerous insects and are a tripping hazard and can damage lawn mowers. Consider Big Mike’s Tree Service to rid your landscape and yard of ugly tree stumps. We offer affordable pricing and use state-of-the-art equipment by Vermeer and Morbark to quickly eliminate stumps from your property.
Stump grinding is the process of using a machine to literally grind at the wood of a tree stump until it is ground below the surface of the soil, about four to eight inches. This permits the ground then be re-planted with either grass seed, sod, or other landscaping. Give us a call and ask us about our GRIND N’ GO SPECIALS.
Whats the difference between Stump Grinding & Stump Removal?
Stumps can sometimes be a tripping hazard or get in the way when you’re mowing your lawn or planting new flowers or trees. They can also be a potential eyesore and nuisance for your property, and can interfere with new landscaping or building plans. In this case, you may want to grind down the stump so it isn’t visible above the ground. This process is called stump grinding. After tree removal, our tree care team may suggest grinding down the stump if the base allows it. Stump grinding can also allow you to cover the area above the stump with grass or dirt, leaving behind the roots to decay over time.
The stump grinding process involves using special equipment that will grind the stump down, reducing it to wood chips. Grinding is usually one of the fastest ways to get rid of a stump, removing the stump from sight and improving the look of your property. Without the eyesore and tripping hazard of a stubborn stump, you will have a blank canvas to improve the area as you choose, growing new grass, planting flowers or building a new structure nearby.
You may want to consider stump removal if your tree had an infestation or was sick from disease. Some property owners will also consider stump removal if they are clearing an entire lot for a new building or house…scenarios in which aesthetics aren’t the top priority.
Stump removal is a more involved process than stump grinding, and as a result, it often takes much longer. Stump removal involves completely removing the root ball underneath and possible the network of roots. By removing the roots, you can ensure that the tree won’t grow back and that you’ve removed the tree’s infestations or diseases, protecting the safety and health of your property.
Stump removal requires specialized, heavy-duty equipment operated by professional operators to remove the stump and roots from your property completely. This process is time-consuming and can leave a hole in the area where the tree once was. If the roots have spread across the property, our team may need to dig up a larger area to remove all of the roots. For these reasons, many homeowners opt for the quicker and more manageable stump grinding process. After removing the stump, we can also fill the resulting hole with topsoil and grass seed; you won’t be able to tell there was ever a stump there!
