If you’ve recently had a tree removed or you have an old, existing tree stump on your property, Bailey’s can grind your stump, remove the debris and repair or finish the ground to meet your needs. Sometimes it is necessary to remove a tree stump in order to plant a new tree or shrub in that location or to convert the area to a new lawn surface by seeding it. In either case, our crews can safely and effectively remove your tree stump.
Tree stump grinding isn’t only for aesthetic reasons, but also serves an important function for the future of your landscape. Decaying stumps left in the ground are broken down in nature by wood decomposing fungi. If other plants are located nearby that same fungi can cause decay in those plants as well. Removing the tree stump will remove the wood that those fungi will attack, keeping your surrounding plants healthier.
Stump Grinding has some advantages over digging out stumps. When a stump is removed by digging, more debris often results leaving an even larger hole. A stump grinder has a toothed wheel that essentially shreds the wood into small pieces that can be easily dug out. Our workers know how to not only remove the main stump but also some surrounding surface roots to allow for the land’s new use.
Although stump grinders can be rented from local rental companies, we strongly advise you allow a professional stump grinding service to do this work for you. The cost to grind stumps can be fairly reasonable depending upon your site and scope of work. The professionals at Bailey’s utilize a big enough grinder to perform this work effectively and efficiently. Stump grinding can be a very dangerous operation that requires the right protective gear and job planning. Since much of the stump and roots go underground, it is very important to notify local utilities to have all underground lines marked prior to stump grinding to prevent service interruption, damage, and personal injury.
