Frequently Asked Qs

Does grinding the stump kill the stump?

Typically no, grinding the stump does not kill the stump.  If the stump is still sending up shoots it can send up a shoot from where the grinding stopped.  Roots usually go out twice the height of a tree.

Does digging around the stump speed up the grinding or lower the price?

No, actually digging around the stump is one of the worst things you can do.  This prevents the machine from getting close enough to grind the stump.

How deep should I get the stump ground?

Normally, 5-6 inches deep for replacement of sod or grass, 10-12 inches for a 20 gallon tree, 16-18 inches for a 35-40 gallon tree, and in some situations we can grind over 18 inches.

What can I do with the leftover mulch?

You can use it for landscaping around the yard, it can just left in the hole where the stump was to be re-grassed over, or it can be bagged and hauled away.

Why should I grind my stump?

An old tree stump is not only an eyesore but it can also be hazardous around your yard.  It can be a tripping hazard and can make mowing a bit more tedious as it can cause damage to your lawn mower if you hit the stump.  Removing a tree stump can also improve the appearance of your property.
