Stump grinding is a procedure used to grind a stump down to below the surface of the earth. The stump is then covered with a layer of topsoil which can be used to plant sod or otherwise blend it in with the surrounding landscape.
A large piece of equipment, the stump grinder, is used to do this by using a chop saw blade to grind away at the stump.
Stump grinding is often cheaper than a complete stump removal because it doesn’t involve digging, cutting away roots, or hauling away the trunk. However, stump grinding is not an option in places where any building development would be performed on or in the vicinity.
Full Stump Removals
In a full stump removal, the stump must be dug out of the ground and its root system must be cut. This option is much more labor intensive, especially if the stump is to be completely removed from the premises once it has been extracted from the ground.
The cost of a stump removal can also be further complicated by things like rocky soil, wood hardness, tree location with respect to surrounding structures and stump diameter.
Whatever option is chosen, Kentwood Tree Service will do the job at the most competitive price that quality and safety will allow. All of our work is done with customer satisfaction as our end goal. Call today for a free quote on our professional services.
