Stumps are an important part of the tree removal process. If a stump is left after a tree is felled, it is almost certain to develop fungal root rots and suckering root rots. To avoid this problem, which can cause extensive damage to the surrounding area, it is highly advisable to have the stumps professionally extracted. Even if a stump is dead, it can still cause root diseases.
This process can be completed by untrained persons but it is much more expedient to use a professional because of the experience required and the machinery which needs to be used, whether winches, grinders or excavators.
Winch removal is only very effective with smaller trees. For leverage purposes we leave a higher stump to help with the removal.
This can be done by hand but is usually only carried out with smaller trees. For the larger tree stump, we employ the use of mechanical excavators to help us remove your stump, again leaving a slightly higher stump to assist the excavation.
This is a very effective method of stump removal. Stump grinders mechanically grind out the main root. Some roots will be left in the ground but most of these will rot down over time. Fine sawdust will be left over from the grinding.
When it comes to the grinding method of stump removal, there is the option of either grinding to a shallow level or grinding away the root much deeper. Which you choose is dependent upon what you want to do with the area around the stump. If you want to lay new turf over the area then you are likely to only need shallow root grinding. However, if you want to carry out landscaping works then it would be prudent to take the root grinding to a deeper level.
Tree stumps can be removed at any time but it is often more efficient and cost-effective to have them removed while the tree is being felled.
