Packer Tree Service Racine

Stump Grinding and Removal Overview

Stump removal can be done in two ways. The first method is to use a medium backhoe to remove the stump as well as its roots. This technique is rarely used on residential properties due to the possible damage it can cause to the surrounding area. The other method we use is stump grinding, which is much cheaper and causes little to no damage to the surrounding landscape, which is why most of our clients choose this option. 

With grinding, we use one of our Vermeer grinders to reduce the size of the stump until it is no longer visible on level ground—ideally 5-7 inches below the soil. With this depth, new plantings, such as grass, can be planted over the location of the stump to restore its former look. 

Every stump varies in its level of challenge to grind. Some stumps are easier to grind, while others take more effort and time. This is due to the difference in maturity, species, and size of the stump. Regardless of the situation, Packer Tree Service can get rid of the stump using our expertise and set of skills. Mature conifers, like spruce and hemlock, are the easiest to ground, while hickory and cherry are some of the most difficult species to ground. Whatever the size, age, and type of stump, we can grind it using our Vermeer grinders.

How We Grind Stumps

We follow a standard process when performing stump grinding services. This procedure includes: 

  • With the help of a rack and a shovel, we will get rid of any debris, including twigs, leaves, and stones around the location of the stump, to ensure safe and efficient stump grinding.
  • By then, we can already bring the sour stump grinder into action by placing it 1 to 2 inches above the stump and beginning the grinding process. 
  • We will allow the grinder to move backward and forward over the stump until we have reduced it to 5-7 inches below the ground. 
  • The procedure ends with us making sure the site is free from tree particles and wood chips. We can use the wood chips as mulch or compost. We can even replant the site with seed or sod for an added cost. 

    It is normal for us to take thirty to ninety minutes to completely grind the stump, depending on its type, size, and age. The process of stump grinding can cause too much dirt, but Packer Tree Service will make it look effortless and seamless. Also, if you have multiple stumps in your yard, we can give you discount rates as well as discounts on several tree service purchases.
