When a tree is cut down, people are often left scratching their heads, wondering what to do with the stump sticking out of the ground. While nature will eventually take care of a stump, slowly breaking it down and releasing its nutrients over many, many years – you probably don’t want to wait that long. When you need quality stump removal services, call the pros at Treemasters!

Removing a stump can seem like a monumental undertaking; tree roots weave through the soil, making it difficult to pull the whole stump and roots out without large machinery. At Treemasters, we use specialized stump grinding equipment to remove a leftover stump.
A stump grinder uses sharp blades to tear through the stump and root, turning them into mulch. The mulch will then decompose and return nutrients to the soil faster than if the stump deteriorated naturally. Unlike traditional stump removal, stump grinding leaves mulch in place of the trunk and will not leave a large hole in the ground.
While it is technically possible to remove a tree stump on your own, doing so can be a difficult and time-consuming task, especially if you don’t have access to the right equipment. Manual digging and chopping is labor-intensive, and chemical treatments or burning could lead to damage or may not fully remove the stump. For the fastest and most reliable results, it’s best to get professional tree stump grinding services.
Stump grinding works by using a powerful, rotating blade to cut the wood into much smaller pieces. The grinding equipment can even access some below-ground roots, which will help fully remove the unwanted stump in a fast and effective manner.
On your own, tree stump removal can be a long process. However, an expert with the right tools and experience can remove a stump in anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size and location of the stump.
Tree can sometimes regrow from a leftover stump, but stump grinding makes it unlikely. In addition to removing the above-ground wood, grinding helps remove a portion of the root system to minimize the possibility of regrowth later on.
Professional stump removal will not damage your property. An expert will take precautions to avoid disrupting the rest of your yard or landscape, such as using protective barriers and cleaning up any dust or debris.
