The Importance of Stump Grinding

Published On: June 29th, 20212.6 min read

After cutting down a tree, you may find yourself left with a question about what to do with the unsightly stump that is left behind. Do you leave it in your yard as is?  Do you grind the stump or choose to pull it out with an excavator?

Stump grinding is our go-to!  It’s an important step in the tree removal process and is an affordable, minimally invasive option for stump removal. Here are some things to consider as you are wrapping up your tree removal project.

Prevent the Stump from Sprouting

With time you’ll notice sprouting from the stump. You may try to pluck them out with pruning sheers, but they’ll grow back after a week or two.  Species such as ash, maple, and willow are especially prolific when it comes to resprouting.  Stump grinding is a lasting solution to this problem.

That’s why you should call our tree removal company for reliable stump grinding services. We’ll grind the stump to be lower than the soil level and eliminate the chance that the tree will regrow.

Enhance Your Home’s Outdoor Safety

It can be hazardous to have a stump above the ground in a highly trafficked area around your property, especially if you have young kids. The kids may trip on the stump when running and playing outside, leading to injuries. Also, the stump will make it difficult to mow the lawn and may damage the lawnmower.

You need to evaluate the various methods for getting rid of this stump to increase outdoor safety. Consider seeking a stump grinding service from the top company near you. The objective is to grind the stump to a level where it’s no longer a tripping hazard.

Avoid Creating an Insects’ Habitat

The decaying stump provides a great habitat for wood-eating pests like termites and ants. At first, these insects may seem harmless until they start getting into your home. For example, termites are known to cause massive property damages.

You must take all necessary measures to repel these insects by destroying anything they can use as a habitat.

Improves Your Outdoor Appearance

Excavating a tree stump disturbs a large portion of your yard, and you risk uprooting other plantings.  It can also be costly to dispose of the stump and roots once pulled out of the ground. That’s why stump grinding is preferable, as you minimize these risks.

Our company will take care of all the heavy lifting for you.  We will grind the stump, get rid of the debris, fill the hole, and plant grass seed, thereby improving the overall appearance of your yard.

Contact the Top Stump Grinding Company for Quality and Affordable Services

To repel insects, improve safety and prevent the tree from growing back, you’ll need to get a stump grinding service. It’s essential you look for various companies near you that offer these services. The idea is to review the level of expertise of each of these tree removal firms and the rates they charge.

Call us today for reliable stump grinding services at competitive rates. We have the latest tree removal equipment, and our employees are highly trained.

These guys are FANTASTIC. Justin, Lindsey, their entire crew really great!! When Justin stopped by to take a look, he listened to what we wanted to accomplish, made suggestions on what to take, leave or just trim. His crew came as expected, did a GREAT job!! If it wasn't for the sign and missing trees you would never have known they were here. I could go on and on. Thank you!!!

We were so impressed with the whole team from Arbortech. Justin the owner was the first to respond to our quotes and was a pleasure to speak with, the office people, Lindsey, kept us up to date and we had the 'A' Team - Paul, Pete and Eric. The best way for me to describe the 'A' team is they are like artists. From their skill to their coordination to friendliness and beautiful clean up. . Marvel to watch. Would highly recommend this company and will use again in the future.

Very Happy with their customer service. There was a large dead tree pretty near my garage, the neighbor's garage, and another neighbor's home that really needed to get taken down. They came out and had it down in a few hours, had everything cleaned up right after. I plan to use them again myself and would definitely recommend them!

This is the second time we have used Arbortech to trim and cut down trees in our yard. After taking his time looking at the trees in question, Justin gave us his professional opinion as an arborist as to the work that needed to be done. The job was scheduled and the crew arrived promptly and did an amazing job! Paul accomplished much of this high up in the bucket equipment because of the height of the trees that needed to be taken down. It was incredible watching the men all work together. At the end of the job, the yard was cleaned up and the crew made sure we were happy with all their work. As an added bonus, we got a follow up call to make sure all had gone well, something you don't encounter much anymore! I highly recommend Arbortech for their knowledge and professionalism!!

I have used Arbortech now multiple times at my house and wouldn't use any other tree service company. Justin is fantastic to work with, he and his team were always incredibly professional, helpful, knowledgeable and just great to work with. For our most recent job, both Justin and Lindsey worked with us to meet a tight deadline for some other work we were having completed. Thank you again for all your help, we really appreciate it!!

Another fantastic job by Justin's biz: Arbortech Tree Inc. Today 3 guys came and cut up and stacked a bunch of 8'-10'' lengths of the trees that were felled a couple of months ago. These guys don't rest until the work is done. They worked efficiently and safely. Totally recommend these guys. Thanks!!

We've used Arbortech Tree for two large jobs at our property. They were great to work with. Their team was well skilled with handling the removal of large trees that were near our home. They communicated well throughout the scheduling of the job. I would highly recommend Arbortech!
