Should I Remove or Grind My Stumps

Trees are a beautiful addition to any home. They offer shade, better air quality, and overall curb appeal. Trees are susceptible to damage or decay, which can cause death and require removal. Removal is especially important if the tree poses a threat to surrounding structures. When a tree is removed, the stump itself is often left behind. Complete removal or grinding are the two main options when asked what to do with your stump.

The Problem With Stumps

Stumps definitely don’t provide the same feel as the tree that once stood there. Stumps can be ugly and difficult to hide, which can not only impact the way you feel about the yard but could decrease property value if you ever decide to sell. Stumps can also make lawn care more difficult and pose a safety hazard to equipment and people.

Stump Removal

Stump removal is relatively straightforward in completely removing the stump and roots from the previously removed tree. This can provide a clean slate when it comes to landscaping. It is important to consider that this method can be expensive due to the extensive labor needed to ensure deep roots are completely removed.

Stump Grinding

Grinding is an alternative solution to full removal that tends to be more cost-effective. This method is more affordable and can be completed much faster when compared to full stump removal. Stump grinding also reduces the impact on your landscape. With full removal, you’ll likely have a huge hole in your property. You will also need to consider the impact of disturbing large sections of the earth, as removal can stress surrounding trees and other elements of nature. Grinding helps to reduce the appearance of stumps without disrupting the ground.
