STUMP REMOVAL VS STUMP GRINDING
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.
WHICH IS BETTER?
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.
