Stump Grinding Geelong
So you've finally gotten rid of that tree that's been causing you issues, the yard looks completely different now, there's more natural light coming in, you can see trees and views that didn't exist before, and you've got a big, ugly stump smack bang in the middle of your garden. Don't leave it there too long though or else there's a good chance it may start to come back to life and start growing again, it may also become a home for ants, termites or others pests, and at the very least there's a good chance someone may trip and injure themselves on it. Time to face facts, the stump has to go!
You might consider just getting the stump ripped out however you'll be left with a giant ugly hole to fill in, and stump removal can be a very tough process sometimes as some tree roots can go down very deep. This is where tree grinding becomes the best option.
Does It Make A Mess?
Stump grinding will usually leave somewhat of a mess however we're happy to clean this up for you and if you prefer we can take all the wood chips away with us, however it makes for great garden mulch if you'd prefer to leave it there.
Isn't This Something I Can Do Myself?
You might be tempted to hire a grinder and do this yourself, however this is something that should only be done by trained professionals. A grinder can be a very dangerous machine, from having wood chips being sprayed into your face or a loved ones, to losing a body part to the rapidly spinning grinding parts. Not only is it dangerous but if you dont know what you're doing you could easily damage the machine which can become very costly very quickly.
Advantages To Grinding VS Stump Removal
In some situations grinding can be the best option. In certain circumstances such as in hard to access or areas or when the surface is too steep, stump removal may be the best option, but generally stump grinding is the preferred option.
Stump grinding has the added bonus of filling in the stump holes with woodchips, which gives you a fresh new garden bed to work with instead of a big hole to fill. It's environmentally friendly and is essentially a form of recycling. It also gives us the flexibility to go after long reaching roots which may go wide and deep, grinding allows us to remove more of these easier.
