Residential & commercial stump grinding in Centreville, VA
Centreville Stump Removal
Tree removal is not complete without also removing the stump, regardless of whether the purpose was to clear a lot for a construction site, or removal of a diseased or dangerous tree. A stump left rotting in the ground can risk attracting pests and diseases that could spread to your healthy trees and shrubs. The reason for removing them from a building site is obvious. For the removal of a stump, we use a stump grinder for the job.
The only proper way to quickly and effectively remove a stump of any size is through the use of a stump grinder.
For the smaller trees and shrubs, the stump is not such a daunting task, as it’s possible to easily just dig it out with a shovel, or burn it up. But it’s not that easy in the case of removal of the stump from an 80 year-old oak tree or massive maple. That requires stump grinding.
“What’s the big deal. Everybody seems to offer stump removal services.”
Sure, while it’s possible to remove a large stump by cutting up the roots with a chainsaw and yanking it out with a 4WD truck, the only professional way of doing it is through the use of a stump grinder.
What is a Stump Grinder?
Stump Removal Centreville VA – A stump grinder is a piece of equipment with a large, fast spinning wheel at the front that has many sharp metal teeth. This quickly chips away at the stump, grinding it into wood chips that can be repurposed as mulch. There are many manufacturers and designs, but they all work the same.
Proper Stump Grinding by the Pros
Because a stump grinder is a powerful piece of equipment with many dangerous moving parts, there are safety concerns to be addressed. Our crew of experts will first inspect and assess the site to determine the safest way to proceed without taking any needless risks.
The Site Inspection and Assessment
Our team will take into account the species of the tree, the surrounding area, the size of the stump and size of the root system to properly assess the job.
Because some species of trees have much harder wood, they will require the right blades to properly grind the stump. Next, we need to inspect for any metal, like from an old fence for example, as well as any anti-pest coating that may have been applied long ago, as these can affect the grinding ability.
Another hazard we must avoid is any buried wires. We also want to avoid damaging any root systems that belong to other nearby trees or shrubs. These details are of utmost importance if we are to do the job right.
Stump Removal Centreville VA – The first thing our crew will do, before even thinking about starting the big cutting disk is secure the area. This is due to the fact that during the process of grinding wood chips fly around in all directions, propelled by the high speed cutting wheel. These can cause injury or property damage.
The Final Result:
A proper stump grinding job is never complete until we have ground the stump down to a few inches below the surface of the ground. To remove it completely we also cut away all external roots as these can sprout a new sapling. The final step is filling the hole removing the wood chips and completely cleaning up the area.
