Why remove a tree stump?
The stump is the section of the stem or trunk which is left in the ground after a large shrub or tree has been removed. Some people choose to leave the stump, sometimes making it into a feature, such as a bird feeding table. However, if you are planning to turf or build over the area, or to erect a wall or fence, then you will first need to remove the stump. Many people also decide to get rid of a tree stump for aesthetic reasons or to maximise space in their garden.
Our stump grinding machine
We use a specialist stump grinding machine to grind out the stump as well as the roots of a tree after it has been felled. This machine removes the stump using a large grinding wheel. The wheel is located at the front of the machine. It is lined with a number of tungsten carbide teeth which can cut through soil and wood. The wheel revolves at a very high speed. As it does so, the carbide teeth grind the stump into woodchip. The machine likewise turns the whole area surrounding the stump into compost. Once the stump has been ground, it is therefore possible to plant, landscape or build over the area.
