Many property owners choose to have their tree stumps ground to avoid any future re-growth or to avoid a rotting stump becoming infested with white ants or other potentially harmful pests. It also reduces the risk of a trip hazard.
Do I need my stumps ground?
Stump grinding after the removal of a tree can increase yard space and can make a useful space for replanting trees in the future.
We grind out the stump and surface roots to approximately 250mm to 300mm below the existing ground level.
Stumps may also get in the way of any future paving, landscaping or construction plans. A stump that is left behind may also be a cause of tripping and injury, children and adults alike.
Many people think that if a tree is cut below ground level, then it can just be buried without worries. This is not always true, and some species of tree are able to regrow from remaining root material which may be buried in the ground. Grinding the main stump and surface roots removes the risk of regrowth.
If the tree was removed for construction projects like building a house or garage, leaving the stump behind can become a costly mistake years down the track that could have been prevented. At Argonauts Tree Service we can ensure that the stump is completely removed by stump grinding.
We offer free inspection of stumps and a no-obligation quotation if work is required.
