Stump grinding refers to the process of cutting the stump of a tree after it has been cut down. A stump grinder is a large, powerful machine that chews away at the underlying root system to create smaller wood chips that can be used for mulch or added to green waste.

A stump grinder is used to ensure the tree doesn’t grow back after it has been cut down, aiming to create space and prevent the areas from attracting any diseases or pests. If a tree is cut down without stump removal from a professional arborist, stumps will remain intact with the tree’s root system and can enable the tree to survive after it has been cut down. This process will create a hole well below ground level, depending on the size of the stump.

When it comes to chopping down a tree, the stump removal is your decision, but there are many factors to consider. If you require tree stump removal, it’s important for you to discuss with a professional first, who can evaluate your situation and the location of the stump.
