Stump Grinding & Removal
Once a tree has been removed, you still have to deal with the stump. Stumps are unsightly hunks of wood that decreases the appearance of your property and become barriers to building on your property. While you could leave the stump in place, most homeowners like to remove it as it gives them more options, such as landscaping the area, planting a replacement tree, or planting grass so it blends into their yard. Stump grinding is an effective means of eliminating a stump to open new space for landscaping, replanting, and building. No matter the size, stump grinding is the fastest, most efficient way to remove any stump from your yard. Little's Tree Service provides stump grinding and removal service that removes stumps from unwanted areas of your property. When we grind and remove stumps, we remove the feeder roots that are 12 to 15 inches below the soil level so that you may replant flowers, a tree, or fill in the area for a level yard.
What is stump grinding?
Stump grinding is the process of removing a stump that is currently lodged in the ground through the use of a machine. This machine has a large heavy duty wheel-blade that spins at high-speeds that is specially designed with teeth to grind the stump and roots into small wood chips. The stump grinder works like a wood chipper at ground level. The bigger the stump the longer it takes to grind down, though in the end you are left with a flat piece of ground that will blend nicely into the surround area.
Reasons to Remove a Stump
Sometimes simply removing the tree isn’t enough. After going through the trouble to have a tree removed, it doesn’t make a lot of sense to leave the stump sitting there being an eyesore, taking up valuable space, and/or becoming a hazard. Leaving a tree stump be in the ground can actually pose problems for people and become a homeowner’s nightmare. A few of the top reasons to remove stumps from your yard include:

They are Hazardous
Some stumps are obvious, but others can become camouflaged by grass, weeds and other plants and become tripping hazards or a hazard for your lawn mower.
