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.

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.

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; are 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 the growth of other plants, and structurally imposing on foundations, roadways, driveways, walkways and sidewalks.

Utilizing Mulch from the Stump Grinder

Instead of throwing out the left-over mulch from the ground up stump, our experts can teach you how to use it as mulch. Stump mulching has several benefits for your garden, including:

  • Insulating the soil
  • Retaining moisture
  • Warding off weeds
