Grinding Stumps to Dust

Sometimes property owners have no choice but to cut down a tree. The tree might be a liability to residents and neighbors because of continual decay or storm-related damages. While cutting down the tree might solve many of your problems, it doesn’t solve them all. After cutting down the tree’s limbs and the trunk, you are still left with that unattractive, decaying tree stump. That is where we come in. No matter the width of the stump, our high-quality grinders will carry out their duties to perfection.

Stump Grinding Versus Stump Removal

Many people believe that stump grinding and stump removals are one and the same, but some differences are important to recognize. Stump removal is the process of removing the entire stump and root system from the ground, whereas stump grinding is the process of excavating the stump without removing the root.

Depending on the size of the tree, the roots can extend up to 50 feet under the ground. Thus, removing the root ball on large trees can be a very invasive and time-consuming process, which is largely unnecessary.

Depending on the size of the tree, the roots can extend up to 50 feet under the ground. Thus, removing the root ball on large trees can be a very invasive and time-consuming process, which is largely unnecessary.

Stump grinding, on the other hand, removes all visible signs of the stump while allowing the root system to decay naturally. Once the stump is ground down to the desired depth, the remaining mulch is left to naturally decompose into dirt.

Our Stump Grinding Equipment

The machinery we use for our stump grinding and removal services is critical to the efficiency of our services. That said, we take the maintenance of our machinery very seriously. We complete thorough walkaround inspections of our equipment after every heavy use. Because of this routine, when the time comes where we are to grind your stumps, you can expect a highly efficient process without any delays.

Technical difficulties can result in equipment malfunctions and in the worst cases, can even cause damage to a client's property. Because of this, we make double-sure that our stump grinding equipment is ready to go for the appointment.

The Stump Grinding Process

At United Stump Grinding, Inc., we make it our business to improve the appearance of your exterior property by grinding stumps to the ground. Our process is quick, efficient, and affordable, and our experts are friendly and approachable.

Our experts use specialized machinery to grind away the visible stump. Our stump grinders are of the highest quality— small enough to fit inside a 36 inch opening and are lightweight yet powerful. They will leave nothing but a pile of mulch where the stump once stood.

Root Pruning

Using our stump grinder, we can also perform root pruning. Pruning tree roots stop them from imposing on the growth of other plants, and structurally imposing on foundations, roadways, driveways, walkways and sidewalks.

Utilizing Mulch from the Stump Grinder

Stump grinding produces a lot of mulch. Upon request, we will more than gladly remove that mulch from your property. That said, many of our clients prefer to use this mulch for their own landscaping projects. Instead of throwing out the left-over mulch from the ground up stump, our experts can teach you how to use it as mulch. The mulch produced by the stump grinding process serves many wonderful purposes. Mulch will help insulate soil, retain moisture, and ward off those unwanted weeds.

Complete Root Removal

For the most complicated stump removal jobs, sometimes root removal is required. Depending on what your goals are after the stump removal process, removing the tree's surrounding root system might be necessary. It could be necessary if the stump sitting in your yard was an old tree before it was cut. Older trees have thicker root systems, and if you want to build where the tree once stood, the roots will get in the way.

Root removal involves digging a radius around the tree and sawing the big roots away. Once all the thick roots have been cut away, we'll remove the stump from its place and backfill the hole. After that, you'll only have to come back in the spring, cover the old stump with grass seed, and you'll never know it was there. Or, if you plan on building something there, you'll have reliable soil to work with.

Removing the Stump Problem Safely

Stump grinding might seem like a half-hearted measure, but that is not the case. In actuality, grinding the stump can often be as effective as complete stump removal—and all without drastically uprooting the entire tree and making a mess of the property.

When we deploy our stump grinders and other high-powered equipment, we leave the deeply embedded tree roots in the soil. In doing so, the roots decay gradually. Before long, the roots will wither away.

Stump Removal for Construction

Do you have a building project coming up? Are there tree stumps in the way of what could be a new gazebo, walkway, or garden? Please let us know because we will get rid of them for you. Stump removal within the area you want to build upon is the first step you should take in building your desired landscaping project.

Tell us about your plans, and we'll schedule a meeting to help you remove your stumps.

Chemically Assisted Stump Removal

Sometimes old trees make for difficult stumps. In cases like that, a little bit of chemical assistance could be required. For those stubborn trees that will take too much time to grind down in the standard way, we will apply potassium nitrate to the stump, which will help it break down and become softer, and therefore, much easier to grind down after a little bit of time. It's an odorless chemical process, so you won't have to worry about any smells on your property. Additionally, the potassium nitrate will not damage any of your surrounding vegetation.

If you are curious about the methods, we'll use when grinding your stumps, call us today and tell us about your stump situation. Our experts will walk you through our process, provide you with a transparent quote, and set up a time to meet with you.
