Is Tree Stump Removal Necessary?

A leftover tree stump may not seem like a big deal, but it could be causing a lot more problems than you realize. Despite being a fast and easy process, tree stump removal offers a number of benefits such as:

  • Enhanced aesthetic appearance: Dead stumps littering your property can create an eyesore. Clearing them out of your property not only opens up your yard, but it also provides you with more space for gardening or construction.
  • Reduced risk of tripping: A small tree stump may not seem dangerous, but it can pose a major tripping hazard – especially if it’s low to the ground and surrounded by tall grass or other plants. Stump grinding is an important safety measure.
  • Lower likelihood of pest infestation: Particularly in the rainy Eastern Massachusetts climate, a rotting stump creates the perfect environment for fungus and pests. Stump removal can help you avoid unwanted critters such as termites, ants, and rodents.
  • Increased property value: Stump removal improves the look, safety, and usability of your yard, which will make your property more attractive to potential buyers.

Stump Grinding FAQs

While it is technically possible to remove a tree stump on your own, doing so can be a difficult and time-consuming task, especially if you don’t have access to the right equipment. Manual digging and chopping is labor-intensive, and chemical treatments or burning could lead to damage or may not fully remove the stump. For the fastest and most reliable results, it’s best to get professional tree stump grinding services.

Stump grinding works by using a powerful, rotating blade to cut the wood into much smaller pieces. The grinding equipment can even access some below-ground roots, which will help fully remove the unwanted stump in a fast and effective manner.

On your own, tree stump removal can be a long process. However, an expert with the right tools and experience can remove a stump in anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the size and location of the stump.

Though a tree can regrow from a leftover stump, it will not return after stump grinding. In addition to removing the above-ground wood, grinding helps remove a portion of the root system to ensure nothing grows or returns later on.

Professional stump removal will not damage your property. An expert will take precautions to avoid disrupting the rest of your yard or landscape, such as using protective barriers and cleaning up any dust or debris.

No, stump grinding and stump removal are both ways to remove an unsightly stump left behind after tree removal, but they are two different processes. Stump removal involves pulling the stump and roots out from the ground. This usually requires heavy machinery and may leave a large hole where the stump once stood. On the other hand, stump grinding uses a specialized machine to grind the stump into small wood chips. Stump grinding is generally less invasive than stump removal but does not remove the whole root ball.

Yes, although stump grinding is usually chosen as the fastest and easiest way to remove a stump, you may decide to use other methods of stump removal.  The most common way to remove a stump other than grinding is by pulling it out of the ground, either with large machinery or manually digging around the base to loosen the stump from the ground. Another stump removal method involves applying chemicals to the stump that accelerate the natural decaying process. After a few weeks, the stump will be soft enough to remove easily or you can choose to leave it in the ground and allow it to decompose fully.
