Tree Stump Removal

Tree Stump Grinding

We have different types of stump grinders for narrow access or for the larger sites. On the front of the stump grinder there is a large cutter wheel that consists of large teeth, which are bolted to the cutter wheel. This removes the tree stump piece by piece. The end product will be a pile of mulch and a hole where the tree stump was. The mulch acts as a great weed suppressant on the garden, or on request we can take the mulch away free of charge. Before we start removing the tree stump we always assess the area to see if it is necessary to put out a guard system. This will ensure that no debris will cause any damage to surrounding areas and make clearing up more effiecient, an important part of tree care services.

Tree Stump Eco-pluggs

Sometimes we have to Eco-Plug the stump. When we insert the Eco-plug’s into the stump we drill holes approximately 6-8cm apart and place the Eco plug directly into the hole and hit them with a hammer until the head is flush with the tree stump surface. This will release the granular phosphate herbicide, killing the root system. This is a safer method than using liquid tree root killer allowing children and animals to use the garden as usual.
