Once we have removed a tree, the stump that remains is often ground out using a stump grinder. This is a hydraulically driven machine of various different sizes that has a spinning wheel on the front with teeth that grind the stump into little pieces of mulch. As it does so it mixes with the surrounding soil so you are left with a mixture of soil and very fine mulch. This is often left to settle over next couple weeks to fill the hole where the stump was and any excess spread around the garden or can be removed if required.

Poisoning Stumps

As well as grinding, stumps can be prevented from re-growing by the use of poison. This allows us to prevent the re-growth when removal of stumps is not practical or to the customers preference.
