It’s important to look after your trees. If you don’t, they may get diseased, overgrown or fall down. Even doing something simple like getting the Greenleaf tree trimming service to cut back your trees a bit can help them. However, sometimes you need to cut down a tree or 2 to help the health of a group of trees or just to give yourself more room. This causes the issue of what you can do with the stump. As the most affordable stump removal company in Dallas, we pride ourselves on providing affordable tree removal services for our clients, but what many people don’t know is that we also provide helpful information right here in our expert blog. One of the most popular questions we get is: what’s the best way to remove a tree stump?
There are several different techniques, some of which are easier than others. The DIY approach for stump removal can be very difficult and potentially dangerous, especially when using chainsaws, power drills, stump grinders, and stump removing solutions, and gasoline. This process can take weeks, if not months, making it very difficult to quickly reclaim that lost space. For this reason, most homeowners find that hiring our affordable stump removal service is the most efficient way to clear their property of any left over stump.
There are several methods homeowners like yourself and professionals can use to remove a tree stump, and here there are:
- Stump Grinding
Grinding a tree stump is the quickest and most thorough method of stump removal. A grinder can quickly dig into the ground, chewing away at the stump and roots anywhere from 6 to 24 inches deep. Grinding doesn’t just remove a stump, it demolishes it and turns it into wood, which can be then used for composting material.
A professional tree removal company like ours can complete the job in just a matter of minutes. The time it takes depends on the size of the tree and the power of the stump grinder.
Grinders can be rented at local improvement stores. If you enjoy working on your yard, then, by all means, go ahead and do it yourself. For many people, however, stump grinding is out of their comfort level, and we understand why. If you only have one stump to grind, it may be just as economical to hire our services than to rent a stump grinder to do it yourself. Plus, it’s always less dangerous for a professional to do the job.
- Hand Digging
Digging out a stump with a shovel is only practical for very small trees with small roots. Even small trees have roots that are tough to pull out using your hand tools. You’ll need to expose the roots before you can cut them. Once the roots are cut, then you can pull them out.
- Backhoe Stump Removal
Some stumps can be pulled from the ground using a backhoe. Beware, though, because using a backhoe is a disruptive way that can create a huge mess in your yard. Once the stump removal is complete, it needs to be disposed of, which can be a nightmare too.
All in all, the best way to remove a tree stump from your yard is with help from a professional tree company—someone who can get the job done in a safe, professional, and danger-free manner.
