How is a tree stump removed?

There are two ways that a tree stump can be removed and in this section, we will take a look at them. The first method is to dig out the tree stump which can be a lengthy process. With this method, we dig around the stump to reveal all of its roots, and then cut through them to allow you to push the stump out of the hole. The disadvantage of this method is that you are left with a big hole, which will need to be filled and then leveled. The second method is to grind the stump. We will first remove obstacles such as rocks around the stump, then we will use our machinery to gradually grind away at the stump. We will stop grinding when the stump is a few inches below the surface. We then level the area so that you can plant grass.

How long does it take?

Removing a tree stump can take some time, but with our skills and tools, we will be able to remove the stump fairly quickly. We prefer the grinding method as it goes faster. Depending on the size, grinding and removing a tree stump will take approximately one to five hours per tree stump that must be removed.
