Tree Stump Removal Options

What actually happens when you hire The Grounds Guys as your official tree stump remover? First, we’ll assess the stumps on your property, considering their size, location, and accessibility in order to determine whether you would benefit from tree stump removal or grinding.

Both tree stump removal and stump grinding can improve the look of your lawn. The right choice depends on your specific circumstances.

Stump Removal

We can completely remove a stump from the ground, even a large stump, along with the larger roots of the stump.

If you decide on stump removal, we’ll clear the area of debris and then use our equipment to excavate the soil and expose the main root system. Typically, we use chainsaws and other cutting tools to cut away the roots and then use machinery to lift the stump from the ground and into our truck. We’ll finish by filling in the hole left by the stump to give you a level landscape.

Stump Grinding

Tree stump grinding is also a popular service we offer. We use a specialized machine to grind and shred tree stumps into wood chips that can be used for mulch. The stump grinding process is typically faster and less expensive than removing tree stumps, but it does not remove the tree’s roots. Instead, it grinds the stump down below ground level.

Stump Removal FAQ

With over 30 years of experience performing lawn and tree care throughout Canada, The Grounds Guys are your local tree experts.

How can you cheaply remove tree stumps?

For smaller, younger trees, it may be possible to remove a stump on your own at little or no cost using common tools like a shovel, axe, and saw. However, you’ll likely need to hire a professional team to remove large stumps with deep root systems. In this case, the cheapest option may be to opt for tree grinding versus full stump removal.

What are the environmental impacts of removing a tree stump?

Removing a stump can have a number of environmental impacts. Stumps provide habitats for various wildlife species, and their removal could eliminate these micro-ecosystems. Additionally, decomposing stumps add nutrients to the soil, and stump removal disrupts this natural process.

Is stump removal or grinding better for tree health in the long term?

Stump grinding generally benefits the surrounding ecosystem more than complete stump removal. Grinding removes the above-ground portion of the stump but leaves the below-ground stump and root system intact. This causes less disturbance to the surrounding soil and roots of nearby trees. The remaining portions of the stump will also decompose naturally over time, adding nutrients and organic matter to the surrounding soil.

Can stump removal prevent future pest infestations?

Yes, removing tree stumps may lower the risk of future pest infestations. Certain pests, like carpenter ants, termites, and some beetle species, are attracted to decaying wood. They can establish themselves in old stumps as they spread to other trees or even nearby structures like your home. Getting rid of stumps removes a potential breeding ground and food source for these pests and lowers the risk of infestations in other surrounding healthy trees.

What should homeowners do with the space after a stump has been removed?

Homeowners have options when it comes to using land after a stump has been removed. A lot will depend on your landscape design goals. One option is to plant a new tree if you want to maintain tree cover. You can also use that space to create a new garden bed. Yet another easy option is to fill in the hole left by the stump if it is in the middle of your lawn. Depending on the size of the stump, you may want to put down grass seed or even sod to fill in the space.
