Stump removal is an integral part of caring for your trees and the health of your property’s ecosystem. Once a tree is cut down, the roots can continue to produce new growth. Grinding tree stumps starts the slow decaying process of the root system. This prevents disease-causing fungi from infecting other areas of your landscape.
We grind stumps to 6 to 8 inches below ground level. This method leaves plenty of room for new topsoil, grass, or groundcover. Unless otherwise agreed to with your arborist, stump chip and dirt mix is left in a pile at the stump to be utilized for neighboring garden beds.
