Edmonton’s Premier Stump Removal Experts
Once you remove a tree, you are typically left with an old, unsightly stump to deal with and navigate around. 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 left in the ground for years, particularly if it is a large tree!
Stump removal involves removing both the stump and the tree’s root ball. Complete stump removal is much more labour-intensive and expensive compared to stump grinding. Most of the time, stump grinding is a far better alternative for removing a stump. The Arbor Man Tree Care experts will provide the advice required to decide which stump removal method is best for you.
Stump Removal Methods
There are different ways to remove tree stumps, and the best options depend on the situation or the environment. The most used method and our area of expertise is stump grinding. Arbor Man Tree Care performs stump grinding below the existing grade to allow for future planting, construction, or landscaping. Generally, we can grind down to a 12-inch depth using our state-of-the-art stump grinders. We have three sizes of stump grinders ranging from small to large to handle any stump grinding job.
Other tree service companies may recommend 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 many stumps in a controlled area; however, experts do not recommend this since there is an overall risk of soil contamination.
Why Remove a Stump?
Tree stumps take up space in your yard and can make it look overcrowded. These stumps can decrease property value and even turn off potential buyers if left unattended. Once the tree stump has been ground down and disposed of, you will find yourself left with more yard space and improved aesthetics for your property. Stump removal will provide you with extra room to improve your landscaping. Consider adding a flower bed, BBQ pit, pool, or planting a new tree.
Avoid Unwanted Growth and Pests
If a stump is left behind after cutting the tree, unwanted plants and weeds sprout up around the stump. These plants/weeds can absorb the soil’s water and nutrients, damaging the nearby valuable plants. Leftover tree stumps can also be an inviting home for insects and rodents, which can play havoc on your yard and surrounding vegetation.
It is never too late to care for your trees, and the Arbor Man Tree Service experts are always available to serve you.
