Stump Removal vs. Stump Grinding
Stump removal is an in-depth process. It involves digging out the stump and all of a tree’s roots. These tree roots can extend far beyond the stump. Digging out the entire tree disrupts the fungal network of the yard and can affect nearby trees and other structures. It leaves a gaping hole in the yard that will require filling. On the other hand, stump grinding is an easier, more eco-friendly option.
When to Hire Stump Grinding Professionals
After removing a tree, the stump will be left behind. You’ll need to hire a stump grinding pro to eliminate the stump or ensure the service is completed after the tree is removed. This job is best left to the professionals because it requires special equipment and know-how. Getting a professional to remove a stump from your yard can help:

Our Tree Stump Grinding Services
We offer three options for stump grinding. If you hire our team to remove a tree from your property, we will also discuss these options prior to cutting down the tree so you know what to expect.
Grind & Go
Your Stump Mulch Left Behind
This service is our cheapest stump grinding option. We will grind the stump and leave the resulting pile of what we call “stump mulch” behind. The size of that pile depends on the size of the stump. That mixture of wood chips and dirt will settle down some over time, or you can use it to fill in low spots in the yard, dump it in the woods, or place it around gardens.
Grind & Remove
Removing Your Grindings
This option leaves your property a little neater than the Grind & Go option. We’ll grind the stump and remove the grindings down to ground level. While this is a little more expensive, it saves you the trouble of doing it yourself and looks better than leaving a pile of stump mulch. This option is popular for trees in decorative mulch beds or grassy areas if you want to grow grass yourself.
Grind & Grass
This service is our top-of-the-line stump grinding option and a real turn-key solution to stumps in existing turf areas. We will perform the Grind & Remove service and then add a soil conditioner and topsoil mix, high-quality grass seed, and straw over the disturbed area. To guarantee the grass grows, you will need to water it, but once it comes in, it’ll look like the tree was never even there.
We Use Top-of-the-Line Stump Grinding Equipment
Our high-quality stump grinder uses forceful rotating blades to smash the stump’s wood into mulch, even below the ground. This tool leaves most of the tree’s root system intact to decay naturally. Our professional arborists are happy to provide stump grinding services to finish a tree removal job.
Improve the Health of Your Yard with Stump Grinding
While having a stump in your yard may not seem like a big deal, it can negatively impact your yard’s health. If you don’t remove the stump, it will often continue to grow new shoots. These shoots are usually weak and unhealthy because they rely on the old stump’s nutrients.
Additionally, stumps can be a breeding ground for pests and diseases that can spread to other trees in your yard. Hiring a stump grinding professional will help improve the health of your yard by removing the stump and preventing the spread of pests and diseases.
