Tree Stump Grinding FAQs

It is technically possible to remove a tree stump without professional assistance, but it can be time-consuming and difficult to get the results you want. Without the right equipment and experience, the process could take hours. Manual chopping and digging is a pain, and other techniques like burning or chemical treatments could damage your property and leave some of the stump intact. If you want fast and reliable results, it’s easier and more affordable to get stump removal services from an expert.

A stump grinder is a powerful tool that uses a rotating blade to grind the wood into tiny pieces. The equipment can even access some underground roots to help the entire root system decay faster.

After a stump has been properly removed, it will not grow back. However, if you leave the stump intact, the root system could continue to expand and you may end up with sprouts after a few months or years.

A stump grinder can remove some of the roots, which can help the rest decay over time. In most cases, the remaining roots will die off over the following four to five years. If you are worried about existing roots interfering with underground pipes or other utilities, discuss your concerns with your arborist. They will be able to tailor their approach to ensure all of your property is protected.

From start to finish, professional tree stump removal can take anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours. The size, location, and accessibility of the stump will determine how long it will take to completely remove.

Professional stump grinding will not damage your property or leave debris behind. Qualified experts know which steps to take to avoid disrupting the rest of your landscape, such as using protective barriers and cleaning up any dust or debris. The only thing left on your property after a service will be an empty space where the stump used to be!

While both stump removal and stump grinding have the same end goal – a stump free property – they are not the same. 

  • Stump removal involves the complete removal of the stump and the underground root system that once belonged to the tree. It’s more labor intensive, involves more specialized equipment, and leaves a hole behind. While the hole may be unsightly, stump removal allows for fresh landscaping opportunities as the roots – which can reach upwards of 12’ out from the stump – will no longer be in the way.
  • Stump grinding is less laborious, faster, turns the visible stump into wood chips that can be used as mulch elsewhere, and does not leave a hole. It does leave the root system, which will naturally decay over time, and is more environmentally friendly.

Tree stump removal does not have to involve grinding, but it is beneficial to the environment and your landscaping. Depending on the size of the stump, grinding can provide enough mulch for protecting and enriching your existing landscaping, and can act as a filler for the hole left behind. Stumps are notorious hubs for damaging pests like termites and carpenter ants. If your stump has an active pest infestation, grinding is the best option for assisting with eradication.
