Grinding stumps

tree stumpOnce a tree has been removed, the final part of the job is removing the stump. Some homeowners are tempted to skip this final stage of tree removal, but in the long run, you'll be much happier if you take care of stump removal as soon as possible.
If you would like to plant new lawn, or another tree in the same area, stump removal becomes mandatory. It's important to remove all of the stump if you plan to plant another tree in the same spot, especially if the tree is B&B (balled and burlapped) or has a large root ball.
Once the stump grinding process is complete, we generally recommend the chips be removed and the hole backfilled with topsoil. Since many roots will remain in place to decay, you may eventually see a "fairy ring" if the tree was in a lawn area.
