The Stump Grinding Process

Stump grinding is a simple process. Here are the steps we take:

1. Clear the area

First, we clear the area around the stump of any rocks and debris. This is important so that our grinder doesn’t shoot the rocks out as we grind the stump. Rocks can also damage our equipment.

2. Trim the stump

Then, we trim the stump with a chainsaw to get it as close to the ground as possible. Using the chainsaw to remove the top portion of the stump is faster and easier than using the grinder.

3. Grind the stump

Next, we use our hydraulic stump grinder to start clearing the bottom of the stump. The grinder operator gradually cuts the stump into tiny pieces.

5 Reasons to Grind Your Tree Stumps

Not sure if you should remove a tree stump in your yard? Here are five of the best reasons to go through with it:


Tree stumps are a safety hazard, especially if the stump is in a high-traffic area of your yard. Stump removal ensures nobody will trip and hurt themselves on your property.

Stumps Attract Insects

Old stumps attract wood-boring insects like termites, beetles, and carpenter ants. These pests are a nuisance that can spread to the nearby trees and plants in your yard. They could also become unwelcome visitors in your house.

Tree Diseases

Tree stumps can also spread diseases to the living trees and plants in your yard. If the stump’s tree was diseased, the stump might still be infectious. Also: a healthy, freshly cut stump can attract fungi and become diseased even if the tree it belonged to wasn’t infected.

Easier Lawn Maintenance

Tree stumps can be a pain when you’re mowing your yard. Nobody wants to mow around obstacles or accidentally damage their lawnmower by running over a stump.

Property Aesthetics

Tree stumps are eye sores. Clearing out old tree stumps improves the overall appearance of your yard.

Stump Grinding & Surface Roots

Stump grinding in the correct manner is especially important if you plan on replanting another tree, ornamental shrub, or grass in the same spot. Our professional arborists can explain what is best for your situation based on your desired outcomes.

Stump Grinding

Stump grinding removes the tree stump and the root flare beneath grade. This means there will be a sizable hole when stump removal is finished. Stump grinding properly is an intense procedure, so it takes longer and is more expensive. It is our primary objective in stump grinding to provide you with the proper amount of spacing, so you may landscape or replant in the same area as the stump without issue.

Surface Roots

In certain situations, typically in hardened clay soil, surface roots prevail and stretch across the landscape. Our team is always here to assess these situations and formulate the best game plan possible to provide you with the desired results without exception. We are fully capable of grinding your stump as well as tackling those nasty surface roots for an extra charge.
