Best method to remove a tree stump

What is the best way to remove a tree stump?

There are three different options for removing a tree stump; digging out the tree stump, using chemicals to remove the tree stump or removing the tree stump with a stump grinding.  Stump grinding is the safest and most environmentally friendly way to remove a tree stump.

Dig out a tree stump:

Digging out the tree stump involves the use of heavy machinery such as an Excavator or JCB. This method can cause significant damage to areas around the stump. It can also cause soil compaction which could be detrimental to the remaining trees, plants and landscape.

Using Chemicals to remove a tree stump:

Using chemicals involves the drilling of the tree stump and adding of suitable chemical to accelerate the decay of the stump. The use of chemicals can cause contamination of soil areas around the stump and even affect the water table which could cause death to surrounding trees, plants and landscape.

Stump grinding to remove a tree stump:

The use of a stump grinder is the safest way to remove a tree stump.  B.O.T.C. Branching Out Tree Care can help; we offer a professional way of removing a tree stump with specialised equipment to ensure a clean, tidy and most importantly a reusable area.

What does Stump Grinding involve?

Stump grinding involves using a stump grinder which is a machine that accurately cuts, with high precision grinds the remaining tree stump below the soil level. This does not cause any damage to surrounding trees, plants and landscaping.

  1. It's super-fast: Tree stump grinding eliminates many of the problems associated with the traditional stump removal methods. It also completes the job in a fraction of the time.
  2. Good for the garden: The stump-cutting teeth on the stump grinding machine creates mulch, which is fantastic for any garden and looks great too.
  3. Minimises damage: Another benefit of stump grinding is how accurate it can be. Our various sizes of stump grinding machines remove stumps with accuracy and precision, which minimise damage to surrounding trees, plants and landscape.
  4. It's kind to the environment: Environmental conservation groups are increasingly promoting stump grinding. Contaminated stumps are being targeted and removed to prevent the further spread of disease to healthy trees in surrounding areas.
