Stump removal is part of tree removal services that is sometimes overlooked. Stump removal takes place after a tree has been cut down and cleared away. Stump removal is a major undertaking. When removing a tree stump, there are several options to consider. The location of the tree stump is of major importance to the tree contractor when planning a stump removal game plan. The location of the stump will dictate whether to start with stump grinding or not.
The quickest way to remove a tree stump is through mechanical stump removal. To remove a stump mechanically, the tree removal specialist will use a stump grinder, which is a machine made of a flywheel with metal teeth. The cutter head is positioned over the tree stump and then stump is ground away a little at a time. Unfortunately, sometimes tree stumps are located in tight places that the stump grinder cannot get into. If this is the case, then an alternative method of stump removal will be necessary.
One method of stump removal that may be selected is stump removal by decomposition. After the tree has been removed, the stump will decompose on its own over time. The amount of time depends on several factors including the size of the stump, the type of tree and the condition of the soil. There are ways to speed up the decomposition process of a tree stump. Tree removal professionals may employ tactics such as maintaining the surrounding area moist, using mulch and nitrogen fertilizer or other commercial tree care products to speed up the decaying process.
If you can’t wait for the tree stump to decay and you can’t use the stump grinder, then it’s time for stump removal using the good old fashioned method – through blood, sweat and tears! Stump removal by digging may sound tougher than it is – depending on the tools you use. If you have access to a backhoe and if there is room to utilize it, the tree stump removal process might be a bit easier. However, sometimes it may take a lot of manpower and manual labor to remove a tree stump.
