About Stump Grinding

If you’ve recently cut down a tree or are planning on cutting down a tree, you’ll need to think about what you’re going to do with the protruding tree stump to prevent it from causing fungal root rot and suckering – when new shoots grow from trunks and roots. Unfortunately there aren’t many options for what you can do with the area where the tree was growing unless you remove the stump too. Our experienced, qualified and professional team of tree surgeons can take care of getting rid of all traces of your former tree with our stump grinding services. It can be more cost effective to let us remove your tree stump at the same time as we fell your tree.

Stump grinding involves using a specialist machine that grinds the stump into wood chips making it easier and quicker to remove. It’s also far more effective than trying to dig out all of your former tree’s roots to prevent it re-growing and you’ll then be free to replant in the area. We’ll choose the right type of stump grinder for your job, depending on where and how big the tree was, and take the utmost care not to disturb the surrounding trees or ground.

Without the correct tools and machinery, removing a tree stump can be hard work and time consuming. Our specialist machinery can take away the hard work of manually removing a stump and our fully qualified, insured team can turn your tree stump into a clean and tidy area ready for replanting.

Stump killing involves drilling holes into the stump and applying secured capsules, this releases chemical and slowly kills off stump. Tree stump and root killer plugs comprise 300mg of granular glyphosate encased in a nylon Eco-Plug capsule.  When glyphosate is released in the tree/ stump it’s transported by the plant’s nutrient levels to the root system where it blocks the plants vital amino acid formation.  This tree stump chemical kills the entire root system of targeted trees with no adverse effect on the surrounding vegetation, delivering 95-100% control of treated tree stumps.
