The removal of tree stumps is the process via which the entire mass of the stump, along with its root ball, is removed from the ground. Depending on the size of the tree, this can be a very difficult and labour-intensive process. Stump grinding, on the other hand, is a process via which special machinery is used to grind the stump down until it is below ground level. Then, the area is filled with mulch or dirt. This process is simpler, which means it's often shorter and more cost-effective for homeowners.
Several factors contribute to the costs associated with Lichfield tree stump grinding. Larger stumps require heavier and more complex equipment for successful grinding. Smaller stumps may be less difficult to grind; however, if they are near buildings, garden structures, mailboxes or in small confined areas, this presents additional difficulties that call for special equipment and specific skill sets on the part of Lichfield tree experts. Also, when large tree roots are included in the grinding job, this may result in an increase in price. Generally, the more complicated the job, the higher the costs involved; however, the experts on our network are able to offer fair and competitive prices.
Grinding a stump safely and properly takes special equipment and training. Stump grinding specialists are experts at operating the equipment. They are able to find and avoid gas, electric water and other major utility lines that may be near the stump. It is important to make sure that none of these lines are severed by grinding equipment as that could create another serious problem and additional repair costs. Also, stumps that are not easily noticed may be safety hazards that cause people to trip which is all the more reason to have them removed. Hiring a professional to grind a stump and prevent regrowth may be the best option for the environment rather than applying some form of poison to the stump and roots.
Although the stump grinding equipment is strong, it is light weight and comes in a variety of easy-to-manoeuvre sizes. The equipment is able to fit through narrow gates and into backyards, courtyards and gardens to take care of delicate jobs. Stump grinding specialists grind a stump down to 6 inches below ground level which produces stump mulch, a natural nutrient for the soil. The hole that remains may be covered with the stump mulch or covered with topsoil so that a new tree or bush may be planted. Our specialist network are able to schedule and handle jobs quickly, efficiently and at the customer’s convenience.

Before the stump grinding process begins, your chosen tree specialist may offer advice or ideas on what to do with the area once the stump is ground. When a customer wants to plant a new tree in the spot, the stump will need to be ground one or two feet below the surface. If the customer just wants to place a large potted plant over the area or a garden sculpture, the stump would only need to be ground several inches below the surface. The specialists involved are experts who can guide customers through all parts of the process so that their gardens can be rejuvenated.
Yes, very difficult to remove stumps can usually be ground in only a short amount of time.
With a special machine that will essentially chip away at the stump until all that remains is sawdust. This does not remove the roots of the stump, which means they must be either left, dug up or extracted by hand.
The cost of stump grinding will vary depending on the size of the stump and how easy it is to access. Local, easily accessible stumps can cost as little as £60, where larger ones will obviously cost more.
Yes, but for small stumps it's cheaper to just hire a professional grinder. It costs about £100 to rent a stump grinder for the day to remove smaller stumps, but there is a higher chance of hurting yourself grinding a stump on your own.
Tree stump grinding may be needed to remove a very large tree stump. Oversized tree stumps are often difficult to remove through extraction, and may therefore need to be ground up by an auger.
When trees begin to sprout from a stump, that's a good sign that the root system – and therefore the stump itself – is still alive. When grinding is done properly, the stump will die and no further trees will regrow from it.
Stump grinding and complete stump removal are two very different services. Removing a stump often means using brute force to separate a stump from its roots, then using heavy equipment to lever it out of the ground. Stump grinding, on the other hand, simply means grinding the stump down until it is level with or just below ground level. It’s a more economical choice, and it is often quicker, as well. This is a great choice for tree species that aren’t known to regrow from stumps, or in cases when you aren’t interested in planting another tree in the same location as the stump. The Lichfield experts on our network can advise of the best method for your needs.
This will depend on many different factors, including the species of the tree and the plants that surround it. Even a ground stump can harbour certain types of pests that can make the stump their home. Certain invasive plants can take root inside ground tree stumps, and pest animals can dig burrows into them, as well. You should get the advice of a professional before deciding whether tree grinding is your best option.
This is a very popular question. It’s possible to use a chainsaw or other tool to cut a tree stump until it is level with the ground, but this doesn’t seal the stump in the same way as grinding. What’s more, a chainsaw cannot accomplish the smooth top that a grinding tool can. A grinder can also take a tree stump below ground level so it can be covered with soil and grass, then forgotten. This cannot be accomplished otherwise.
