While you may have your reasons for removing the tree stump and its roots, as experienced arborists we understand the importance of removing the stumps and roots completely.

If tree roots and stumps are not removed in time, they may sit there and rot, which can cause a range of issues, including the chance of the stump easily becoming a home for ants, termites, and other pests.

It can also get in the way of your landscaping and paving plans, or worse, it can trip children and adults alike. 

Factor to consider while looking for a tree stump removal services 

Credentials: The removal of trees is a profession on its own, so tree service companies should be licensed. In addition, these companies will need to have insurance coverage for their employees; although accidents are rare, they can sometimes occur during tree removal work. If the tree removal company you hire does not have insurance coverage, you will be responsible for any injuries that occur on your property. If you do not want to incur such unnecessary costs, make sure any company you hire has valid insurance and other credentials.

Expertise: The removal of tree stumps requires some experience. Since when has the company been in business? Does their claim have any evidence behind it? Tree removal companies with experience are familiar with all the local rules and regulations. For example, removing a tree from a private property could require permission from the local government. People with the right knowledge and skills will do the job professionally and without breaking any laws.

Reputation: There will be differences in the pricing and the quality of services provided by different companies. It is imperative to pay attention to value for money when hiring tree removal services. The reputation of a company will be an excellent indicator of what to expect. How do previous clients rate the services provided? You can find out more about the company you want to hire by reading the reviews on their website.

Equipment: As tree stump removal is a risky and delicate activity, it is important to use the correct equipment. A proper set of tools and equipment will simplify the removal process. Therefore, it is important to work with companies that have modern equipment. While manual removal is a great option, it is not the best approach because it may take a long time to complete. As well as compromising the safety of the individual, the method is also risky. It is important that the tree removal company you hire has employees who are protected in the right manner. These safety precautions not only keep the workers safe, but also show how much the company values their work. 


As a stump removal company local to Melbourne, we have come across many clients who were divided between removing and grinding a tree stump.

To make a choice, however, would require some information about the tree stump and your objective behind removing it. Before digging deeper into these factors, let us first share what both processes involve.

Stump Removal: This process involves completely removing the stump from the ground using a crane or heavy duty vehicle. Before removing the trunk, its root system is mapped out and connection with the roots is severed.

Stump Grinding: This is relatively easier process where by a grinder is used to shred and grind the tree stump into chips and mulch. Based on the user’s requirement, the grinders can grind the tree stumps above and below the ground level to a certain level of depth. After the grinding, the ground is covered with mud, letting the trunk and its roots to rot under the ground.


Removing a stump is a labour intensive work as it requires mapping out the root system, cutting them and then using cranes or heavy machinery to pull out the trunk. This is not a straight forward job and because there is no way for the arborists to understand the tree’s underground root system, it can take hours longer than first estimated. While this process is relatively less time consuming for young and juvenile trees, for older trees this can be very much a complicated and time consuming task.

This is usually the chosen method when the property owner has plans to build new infrastructure on the land, and does not have the luxury of letting time eat away at the stump and roots underground.

Compared to complete removal, grinding a stump is relatively less labour and time intensive. However, as the stump takes a long time to decay, it can potentially invite insects like beetles, termites and other wood-boring pests.

Professional Assessment

Our professional stump removal services involve stump grinding. Our professional stump removal process includes grinding the stump itself and grinding an additional foot of surrounding ground to reach the roots. If necessary, we will also grind even larger areas to remove unsightly or annoying surface roots. Stump removal machines are available in different sizes for removing small to large stumps.

Removal of small stumps- Small stump grinding machines are self-propelled and make them fit through apertures of up to 36 inches across. These stump grinders grind stumps down to a depth of 2-6 inches.

Removal of large stumps- Larger stump grinding machines do not have self-propelled wheels. We will make a careful backward turn with our truck and machine to reach the large stump in your yard. To effectively destroy the root ball, stump grinding machines grind the stump to a depth of 12 inches.

We use the mulch created by grinding the stump to fill the hole after grinding it. Eventually, the stump mulch will settle back into the ground, which even nourishes the soil. The ground stump mulch can be removed and replaced by topsoil and seed in addition to the mulch removal charge.
