What Is a Stump Grinder, and When Should You Use One?
Posted by: Samuel Hirshfield on May 7, 2014
Stump grinding is not only an effective way to rid your lawn of unsightly tree stumps, but it also prevents termites from invading your yard or home, stops the spread of disease to other trees and reduces safety hazards caused by the stump or root system. When removing trees, don’t forget how important the final step, stump removal, can be to the overall health of your yard.
Stump grinders use a rotating disc to cut away the wood, grinding through to the other side of the stump. In the end, the entire stump and its roots will be ground to wood chips. These small wood chips can easily be raked up, and the remaining hole filled with topsoil.
Spring is the perfect time to ready your yard for warm weather entertaining. If you recently removed a tree or have been dealing with an unattractive tree stump for a while, renting a stump grinder will allow you a cost-effective and quick way to complete your project.
