Rapid response from suppliers and provided a very competitive quote and time scale to complete the work. Mr D. Lichfield, Staffordshire
There are many people who attempt to remove stumps from their property on their own, and this often causes more harm than good. One of the more common methods involves burning the stump out with petrol. Although this can certainly turn a stump to cinders, it can also cause a significant fire if it isn't controlled. This method of stump removal is not recommended. Some individuals will try to remove the stump by securing it with ropes or straps and pulling it out with a truck. Often, this only results in damage to the vehicle. A tree's root system is elaborate, and it takes quite a bit of effort and expertise to remove it from the ground.
Stumps may be removed by grinding, extracting, burning or using chemicals in order to get rid of them.
There is no one method that is better than any of the others. Instead, the right method will depend on the size of the stump, its root system, and various other factors.
Tree stump removal will either be charged by the hour, or per stump. A by-the-hour charge will generally cost about £100-120, where a 'per stump' charge is harder to determine.
This depends on the method used to remove the stump. Using a professional stump grinder or a mechanical remover can be completed in an afternoon, while burning or enzyme treatments will take significantly longer.
The preferred method is to extract the tree stump by loosening it from the ground and then using a chain or pulley to forcefully lift it from its roots. This requires heavy equipment, and is not a DIY project.
Stump removal can be risky in certain situations, and that's why it's so important to find a company with the knowledge and experience to do the job right. It's also vital to mitigate any potential risk. Each stump removal company in our network hires tree surgeons who are fully licensed and insured.
Many homeowners make the mistake of thinking they can simply use gasoline or kerosene to burn a stump out. While this can and sometimes does work, it can be dangerous for those who are inexperienced. What’s more, in some cases, the stump doesn’t burn out completely, which leaves unattractive growth behind.
Root removal isn’t usually included in a stump removal service, and in most cases, it isn’t necessary. Once a stump has been properly removed, the roots will not continue to grow and should pose no problems to your home’s foundation or lawn.
Most property owners think that it will be OK to remove stumps by tying a rope to them and trying to pull them out with a truck, or by trying to burn them to the point where the rest can be chopped out with an axe. However, neither of these methods is recommended, as substantial property damage can be caused.
Stumps that are quicker and easier to remove will cost less than those that are larger and more deeply rooted. When speaking with the professionals, they will provide you with a quote, which will include complete removal of any that may be present on your property that have become a nuisance.
