Have you had a tree removed and been left with an unsightly stump? Left on their own, tree stumps can take years to degrade. The whole time you are waiting on it to rot you will have to deal with looking at and working around it. Often, landscaping companies and even some arborists will perform a tree removal and then leave a stump. The truth is, no tree removal is complete until the stump is dealt with.
At VI Tree Service, we pride ourselves on getting the job done right the first time. Our stump grinders are always ready to go. Whether you need complete tree removal or you need us to finish the job left to you by another contractor, we are ready to help.
Stump grinding is a process where our stump grinding team will perform a stump removal. Stump grinding is performed using a special machine designed specifically to remove stumps. The machine has a special blade that is lowered onto the remaining stump. As the blade turns, the stump is reduced to sawdust. The stump grinder can grind up stumps below the grade of the surrounding landscape so that once we’re done there won’t be anything left.
Leftover tree stumps are unsightly and can invite fungus and insects close to your home or business that can target the wood in their structures. As stumps rot, fungus and insects move into them to help in the breakdown process. Having an infestation of wood-eating insects and fungus near your wood-framed home is never a good idea. Furthermore, since stumps take so long to breakdown, they’ll be camped out near your home for years.
When left alone, stumps are not always dead. Once the tree is gone, the roots are still alive and will attempt to regrow. The regrowth will need to be constantly pruned and since it grows straight out of the stump, it doesn’t look nice. Having the stump ground down will prevent regrowth and all the other problems that come along with having stumps.
The best thing about stump removal is that you can replant right over the top of the site. Stump grinding removes most of the stump and root structure from the tree. Once it is gone, new turf can be seeded or a new tree planted to fill the space. Stump grinding allows you to immediately begin to remediate the space.
