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.

Great team and very professional, they efficiently took down some large older trees that were dying and hanging over my house and in very difficult positions while also requiring them to manage traffic, I will definitely use them again in the future

I would give 6 Stars if I could. This is the third time I've used Justin and his crew of Arbortech. He and his crew go above and beyond in the services they provide. They do all, and then some, of what I contracted them to do. His crew is personable, professional, and tidy. They left my place cleaner than when they got here. Can't say enough. Use them. You won't be disappointed.

Arbor tech and their crew were amazing!!! Not only did I not have to wait a long time to schedule the work, but they also came on time the day of. The crew were friendly, professional and helpful. They went above and beyond what I expected them to do. They even cleaned up afterwards as if they weren’t even there. The price I was quoted was reasonable and they did not charge more than was quoted. The whole experience was fantastic. I will be using them in the future. I highly recommend them! You will not be disappointed.

All aspects of our experience with Arbortech were beyond expectation (5+ stars at all levels). From the scheduling process and ongoing coordination and discussions with Lindsey to the onsite discussions with Justin, and finally with the crew while the work was being done, we couldn't be happier. They listened, they provided insight to our project while remaining very sensitive to our privacy concerns with the trimming of our pines. In an evolving world where a lot of customer care seems to have vanished, we are grateful we found a company where it seems to be a core component of their values. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

From start to finish our experience with Arbortech was wonderful! Lindsey was extremely responsive and worked with us to set up both the estimate and schedule the work. She even communicated with our neighbor to coordinate the timing as we needed to use their driveway for the job. Justin came promptly to look at our trees, explained our options in a very clear an professional way, and gave us an extremely fair estimate. The guys who came and did the work did a really great job and cleaned up everything afterwards, so we (and our neighbor) were very happy. They were also very friendly and gracious even though they were working during a crazy heat wave- they appreciated the popsicles I gave them! I highly recommend Arbortech Tree Service!
