A professional-grade grinder is a massive piece of equipment that must only be controlled by an experienced, skilled tree professional.

Why Choose Grinding

Stump grinding is the most effective type of stump removal. When you choose grinding, you can be sure that the whole tree stump will be gone, thus removing the safety and hazards of an exposed stump. 

Also, grinding guarantees that ants, snakes, termites, bees, and other pests don’t have a home in which to nest. Also, choosing grinding instead of removal puts less stress on your landscape.

Difference Between Stump Removal and Stump Grinding

Your tree company may give you more than one choice for tree stump removal. Some homeowners decide to let the tree stump rot and break down naturally. However, this process is incomplete and long. Also, a tree service can dig the tree stump out of the ground. Though, this results in a big hole in your outdoor space that needs filling. 

Grinding does not make a hole. You can use the grindings from the stump as mulch around your landscape.
