Stump grinding — Stump grinding in Gordonvale, QLD
Wondering if you are in need of stump grinding services? If you had a tree felled due to safety hazards, or you just wanted that area of your yard cleared for one purpose or another, you are then left with the task of figuring out what to do with the stump. Large stumps can not only get in the way of mowers, patios and construction projects, but they are also an eyesore. Additionally, and while many people are not aware of this, stumps can begin to reshoot and grow the tree back where it was (although over a long period time for larger trees). That means if you want the tree to stay gone, you need to get rid of the stump.
There are two main processes by which we can get rid of the stump for you. The first way is to remove it. In this case, “remove” means to dig it up by the roots and remove it from the property whole. This may seem like a good choice, but it can cause more disturbance to your yard, and it is also often a time-consuming and more expensive process. The other option is stump grinding, in which a large machine is used to grind the stump down into wood chips.
Stump grinding has many benefits when compared to other removal methods. To start, grinding the stump will also prevent the tree from growing back, even though the deeper root systems may still be intact. Roots need nutrition in order to grow back, and without the stump, this isn’t possible. Secondly, the mulch created during the grinding process can be used for gardening or as ground covering anywhere around your yard. Finally, stump grinding is usually a less expensive process than removal, while still accomplishing the end goal.
