Removing Tree Stumps
It's important that stumps are either removed or ground down to prevent regrowth and perhaps more importantly, to prevent fungal root rots that can spread amongst other trees.
When the area is to be turfed over, the stump will be ground down to well below ground level to allow laying of turf or landscaping.
We can remove the saw dust or it can be used as mulch, elsewhere in the garden or simply used to fill in the hole.
We're often asked questions about stump grinding - here are some of those questions answered...
Can I hire a stump grinder?
You could rent a stump grinder but when you weigh up the cost against the risk to personal safety, safety of those around you and the possibility of damaging property, it would hopefully become apparent that it's not worth it. Our tree surgeons are trained in the safe operation of stump grinders and we're fully insured.
Access to my garden is via a narrow passageway - can you still use a stump grinder?
Our smaller stump grinder is narrow enough to fit through most standard gate sizes of around 3 feet.

How does a stump grinder get rid of tree stumps?
Quite simply it turns the stump into small chips. We can dispose of these chips or they can be used for decorative purposes in you garden. The tree stump is reduced to below ground level and regrowth will be prevented.
How long does it take a stump to rot if you don't grind it out?
Depending on the size, it can easily take 20 years for a tree stump to rot. During this time you risk regrowth, possible disease or fungus that can affect other plants.
