What is Stump Grinding?

Having an old stump sit in your yard for years can be unsightly and reduce the value of your home. Many tree removal companies only offer services for cutting the tree down and then leave you to take care of the large ugly stump and roots yourself. That’s where stump grinding companies come into play. Stump grinding is the only way to totally remove a stump and roots from your yard.

Stump grinding isn’t a new service by any means, but it is surprising how many people are unaware that it exists. When someone has a tree that they want removed, all too often they call up one of those dang tree removal services. People that already have a stump in their yards are worse off – they usually don’t think that there is any possible way to remove it. And if they do, they assume that it is incredibly expensive.

While our stump grinding service isn’t free, it’s not incredibly expensive either. We grind any and all old stumps for a very reasonable price. Hiring us, a stump grinding company, is a whole lot easier than trying to grind your stump down yourself.

It’s true that many home improvement stores rent out stump grinders for a day, but if you’ve ever seen anyone using one of these tools, then you know that it is not the best way to go. Rented stump grinders are usually not the best machines for the job (ours are bigger and better maintained) and you have to fill them up with gas as you go (trust us, they guzzle it). Worst of all, using a stump grinder yourself is time-consuming. For most people it is better just to have a professional come out and remove their stump.

Safety is also a concern when stump grinding by yourself. If you knick a piece of metal or asphalt that is in or around the tree, the machine can break and injure you. Professional stump grinding companies have been removing stumps for years and know the ins and outs of all of these safety concerns.

If you have an old stump in your yard, you owe it to yourself to have it removed. For one thing they are ugly and take up space, and for another thing, they reduce the value of your home. Having a company come in and grind down your stump will only benefit you and your family.
