A tree stump not only takes up valuable space, but it can also affect landscaping projects and make your yard unsafe. You can get in touch with Tree Service Colorado Springs to grind the stump to nothing or have it removed entirely with all its roots.
This is one of the most common ways of getting rid of rogue tree stumps in your yard. It is much desirable because it is cheap, less labor-intensive, and an efficient way to remove a tree stump. Stump grinding is carried out using a grinding machine. This machine has a grinding wheel with teeth hat spins to slowly grind the stump away. Typically, the stump will be ground out to a depth of about 20″ below the ground leaving behind stump grindings & shavings that can be left in a pile or removed post-grinding
Stump removal is a more intrusive approach compared to stump grinding. In this case, instead of simply grinding the stump till most of it is below ground, the stump is removed entirely along with all its roots using powerful tools. This is also quite a labor-intensive and may cause some damage to your landscape since tree roots can go deep and spread wide. The upside, however, is that you are left with your landscape completely free for whatever you intend to do with it with no restrictions
Is Root Removal Necessary?
After grinding the stump below-ground and covering it up, removing the root is not really necessary. Typically, the root will simply rot in the ground. But this is a slow process that will take some years. However, root removal may be necessary if the root poses a safety risk to your pipes and landscaping features or if the roots are exposed to the topsoil which can be an obstruction or tripping hazard.
Chemical Stump Removal
This is an alternative method of getting rid of tree stumps. In this method, the stump is first trimmed as low as possible. Once this is done, several holes (about 10 to 12 inches each) are drilled into the stump. A stump removal chemical is then poured into the holes. This will make the stump spongy, soft, and easy to remove.
