Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding and Stump Removal Edmonton

 

Once a tree has been removed, you are typically left with an old, unsightly stump to deal with and navigate around.  Now realizing that sometimes the only option you have is to cut down a tree but no one wants to deal with the disposal of a tree stump that was left in the ground for years after the tree was removed, especially if it was a large tree!

At Arbor Man Tree Care, our focus is to provide a high-quality level of service and leave every customer satisfied. Leaving a tree stump behind can be a major inconvenience. Picture yourself moving in to a new home and you literally stumble across a massive tree stump in your backyard.  This can make for an unpleasant experience.  As the home seller or the new home owner, you can give the experts at Arbor Man Tree Care a call and we can get rid of that eye sore in no time and leave you with a much more appealing backyard.

Completing the ​disposal process by yourself can be expensive, time-consuming and not to mention dangerous. As you can imagine, purchasing the necessary machinery and equipment to properly grind a stump is not only very costly but the work involved will take up a great deal of your spare time.  We recommend saving money and spending time with friends and family and leave the stump grinding to a professional.

Stump Removal Methods

There are different ways to remove tree stumps and best options are dependent on the situation or the kind of environment that the stump is in. The most commonly used methods and our area of expertise is stump grinding.  Arbor Man Tree Care can perform stump grinding to a level below the existing grade to allow for future planting, construction or landscaping. Generally, we are able to grind down to a 12-inch depth using our state-of-the-art stump grinders with no stump being too big or small.

We have 3 different sizes of stump grinders ranging from small to very large so we can handle any stump grinding job.

Other tree service companies may recommend the option of using chemicals, which will accelerate the process of natural tree decay. This process can take many months or years before the stump is completely gone which leaves your children or pets at risk for the entire tree rotting period. It may be an option for removing a large number of stumps in a controlled area however there is an overall risk of soil contamination so it is not really recommended by experts.

What are Stump Grinders or stump cutter?

A stump grinder or stump cutter is a power machine attachment that removes tree stumps. The machine has a rotating cutting disc that chips away the wood. This machine can remove a stump by cutting the wood down until the stump is completely removed. While cutting, the stump is turned into sawdust, so that debris could be removed easily.

What’s left of a stump

​Using stump grinders is the best option for individuals who need their stump to disappear right away. We have the removal tools such as chainsaws, trunk grinders, cutters and other job specific machines and equipment.  Once completed, holes are back filled with the mulch that is created by grinding the stump and the remaining mulch is also great to be used for ground cover, gardens and flowerbeds.

Benefits of ​​Removing a Tree Stump

From time to time, trees can get diseased and can potentially pass this on to other trees and plants.  By removing the diseased stump, we can help reduce the risk of other trees getting diseased which may result in them needing to be removed as well.  This cycle can be very costly and it is best to deal with it as quickly and effectively as possible.  Along with this, there are additional benefits that you can consider​:

Improved Aesthetics and Space

​Tree stumps take up space in your yard and can make it look overcrowded. If left unattended to, these stumps can actually decrease your property value and even turn off potential buyers. Once the tree stump has been ground down and disposed of, you’ll find yourself left with a clearer space and improved aesthetic of your property. Stump removal can provide you with extra the room to improve your landscaping and maybe even consider adding a flower bed, BBQ pit, pool or planting a new tree.

Helps Avoid Unwanted Growth and Pests

If a stump is left behind after cutting the tree, there can be unwanted plants and weeds that sprout up around the stump.  These plants/weeds can actually absorb the water and nutrients in the soil which can be damaging to the nearby valuable plants who are left with very few nutrients for proper growth. Left over tree stumps can also be an inviting home for insects and rodents which can also play havoc on your yard and surrounding vegetation.

Improved Safety

Aside from protecting your family and plants from unwanted insects and pest infestations, stump grinding also improves the safety and accessibility of your lawn. Stumps can cause a stumbling hazard for toddlers, seniors and anyone for that matter.  By removing the stump, the risk of having a friend or family member fall and hurt themselves is greatly reduced.  Along with this, there is nothing more frustrating then having to navigate around these rogue stumps when mowing your lawn.  Accidentally running over a smaller stump with your lawn mower can result in small projectiles being launched from the mower and could cause damage to a person or surrounding property.

Hiring a professional tree service company is the best way to deal with your leftover stump. It helps you save time and money, and it is a more cost-effective solution.
