What is stump grinding?

stump-grinding-indianapolis-menchhofer
A stump grinder is a special tool that is used to grind away tree stumps and the roots beneath. The tool consists of a heavy metal wheel that is fitted with cutting teeth. These teeth chip away at the tree stump as the grinder is lowered back and forth across the stump. This turns your unsightly stump into valuable wood chips that can be used for mulch or landscaping.

Why is stump grinding necessary?

In the past, it was believed that stump grinding was completely optional. However, according to National Arborists, failing to grind away tree stumps in your yard may result in the rest of your trees becoming infected with harmful tree decay fungi. This fungi infects tree stumps that have been left after a tree has been cut down, and will eventually release spores into the soil that can spread to your healthy trees if they become wounded. Contact our diseased tree service team if you think you have an unhealthy tree on your hands.

Why hire a professional stump grinding service?

While it is possible to rent a stump grinder to use yourself, this can be expensive. Not only that, but you are left with the task of finding the time to remove the stump yourself, and dispose of the chips that are left behind, if you are not planning to use them. Additionally, many homeowners attempt to use a stump grinder themselves only to find that they are unable to successfully remove the stump, and end up hiring a professional tree service any way. By hiring our service, you save yourself both the expense and trouble. We are happy to serve any household in the Indianapolis, IN area, and will work around your schedule to set up a time that is convenient for you.
