Stump Grinding

Here at  SL Landscape we offer chelmsford tree stump grinding services, we are able to remove all sizes of stump, and back fill the hole with soil. You can re-plant in the area on the same day. A stump grinder uses a high speed rotating disk that chips away the wood and main root plate, leaving fine sawdust.

This is the best solution. Ideally the stump should be removed entirely, but if this is not possible alternative methods usually give satisfactory results.

For smaller trees the stumps can be pulled out with a winch. These can be hired by gardeners with the knowledge to use them safely. For leverage it is necessary to leave a good sized stub on the stump (up to 1.2m (4ft) high) rather than cutting it off at ground level.

Grubbing out by hand or mechanical mini-excavator removes the majority of the root system. Removal is easiest if trees are cut down so that a significant length of trunk remains to give leverage to help in removal. Landscape contractors are often skilled at stump removal, but you can hire mini-excavators and operators separately.

Machines known as stump grinders will mechanically grind out the main root plate, leaving fine sawdust. Although stump grinders can be hired, they are potentially hazardous and are only for gardeners confident that they can use machinery safely. Some roots will inevitably be left in the ground but the majority should eventually rot down.
