An unsuspecting driver can accidentally hit the stump and damage his vehicle. Tree stumps can also be a threat to your lawnmower when you accidentally hit it. To top that, stumps can be a breeding place for dangerous insects and pests. Termites and ants tend to be invasive, and if you don’t address them right away, they will also invade your home.

  • Unearthing by Hand- Some trees are located in areas where it’s hard to access by heavy equipment. For instances like this, digging by hand will be a good idea to remove the stump. However, this is extra tiring for anyone, and it may not work for all types of trees, especially oak. 

    • Digging with a Backhoe- This method would be the last on our list because it can be damaging to the soil surrounding the tree. With a backhoe, we will lift or push the tree to eliminate the tree stump. It can be useful when used for stumps with root balls or surface roots. 
    • Chemicals- Chemical compounds can help speed up the process of decay for stumps. We will pour the chemicals into holes using a drill. It is the best approach to use when the stump is dry. 

    If you need a stump removed, consider hiring one of the local stump grinding companies; they have the expertise and equipment to efficiently handle grinder stump removal. Call us today, and we will discuss with you your options for our stump removal service.
