What’s the problem with tree stumps?

A lingering tree stump on your private property prevents you from using that space. This reduces the amount of usable land available to you and puts an obstacle in the way of any future plans for home extensions, building or garden projects. Even if you don’t have any home renovation plans, a stump is a dangerous tripping hazard and an ugly blemish on your outdoor space. On top of all of this, a tree stump continues to cause problems subterraneously through the aggressive root system that lives on even after the rest of the tree has been removed.

Beneath the surface of the earth, your stump is making mischief as its roots expand, greedily seeking out more water and nutrients from the soil. As the roots grow and explore, they can interfere with plumbing, unearth pavement and cause cracks in walls as the ground beneath them becomes unsteady. This root system diverts precious resources from your garden and sends it to a stump that can no longer use them. The surplus of nutrients that get sent to the dead tree become a hotbed for infestations of unwanted insects, rodents and disease. All of this can happen without clear warning as the pesky stump rots slowly over time. These gradual problems compound and slowly wreak havoc on your plants, garden and outdoor area.

What are the benefits of removing a stump?

Removing a tree stump cuts off the roots at their source and causes them to decompose in your soil, releasing more nutrients that will allow the rest of your garden to prosper. Stump removal clears the obstruction from your property and allows you to use the space however you would like. This enables you to plant new saplings, carry out garden projects, home renovations or even just have free space to enjoy in your yard. Some of the greatest benefits of getting rid of a stump are the problems you can avoid. No longer will you have a tripping hazard on your property and nor will you have a beacon in your yard attracting unwanted pests. Removing a stump allows you to use your property to its full potential, removing any obstacles to your plans and improving the overall garden aesthetic.

What is the best way to remove a stump?

The best way to remove a stump is a process known as stump grinding. Our teams use an industrial stump grinder to break down the stump to below the surface of the soil. This approach cuts off the root system from its life source and causes it to perish, preventing any further problems caused by expanding roots. Stump grinding is the fastest, safest and most environmentally sustainable approach to removing a stump. The outdated alternative approach was to excavate the stump and entire root system from the ground. Not only was this a back-breaking endeavour, but it was painfully slow and resulted in the most damage to the surrounding environment. By using our cutting edge stump grinder, our teams can make short work of any stump on your property without any significant impact to the local ecosystem. Once the team has broken down the pieces of the stump, they can feed the wood through our wood chipper. This recycles the green waste into fresh, organic wood chip mulch which can be used to mulch your garden or easily transported offsite by our team.
