Stump Grinding Questions Answered

Why grind a tree stump down instead of just pulling it out? 

Grinding a tree down is much less damaging to surrounding trees and landscaping than pulling a tree out from the ground.

Is it better to remove a dead tree that’s already been cut down or shred the remaining stump with a wood chipper?

If the upper part of the dead tree has already been removed and the roots are already uplifted it would probably be simpler to extract the tree manually with a winch instead of grinding it into a dry tinder mess. If the tree is still moist and strong it would likely be better to grind the stump down into mulch for removal.  Every tree stump and situation is different so it’s important to make the call of whether to pull it out or grind it based on those specifications.

How far below ground level should a tree stump’s roots be chipped?

The maximum depth a tree stump and its roots should be ground is 6 feet below the surrounding surface soil. Any deeper than that is excessive and puts plumbing pipes, gas lines, and electrical lines at risk. It also puts landscaping, pools, decks, patios, and other non-biodegradable materials at risk. In rare cases, deeper stump grinding may be necessary at a higher cost.

Does grinding surface tree roots hurt trees?

Surface roots account for a very small fraction of a tree’s root system so grinding troublesome surface roots does not cause any harm to healthy trees. If a tree is already sick, diseased, or infested we would probably recommend a deep root feeding to nourish the tree at the time of the surface root grinding to prevent any adverse effects. Grinding surface roots actually prevents damage to utility lines, pipes, and electrical lines underground. It also prevents sidewalk, patio, and pool damage from roots lifting and cracking the concrete.
