There are many different reasons as to why stumps may need to be removed from your property. Regardless of whether it’s a yard at your home or the lawn on the property of a residential building, there is simply no question that a stump can really harm the aesthetics of the land, not to mention that it can also result in serious sanitation issues as well.
If eliminating tree stumps on your property is something you need to do, you have two primary options: either having them completely removed, or simply grinding them down. Call for stump grinding and stump removal at (916) 260-2937.
The Importance of Removing Tree Stumps
First and foremost, you really need to understand how important it is to have tree stumps on your property removed. If you leave the stump unattended, this will cause the growth of other trees around it, which can then be very expensive to remove as well.
That’s also not to mention that tree stumps can be a magnet for beetles, termites, or carpenter ants (which poses a whole new array of concerns), and can be a safety hazard for people who could accidentally trip over them.
Finally, tree stumps can have a very poor aesthetic effect on your home as well, especially if they have weeds growing around them.
Stump grinding means that the stump will be removed without having the roots removed. A stump grinder will be applied to grind down the stump mechanically, only leaving fine saw dust left over.
While you may question the purpose of stump grinding when complete stump removal is an option, but the reason is because stump grinding will ensure that the stump is ground down to your desired height. For example, you can grind down the stump to be a few inches above the ground, or a few inches or even over a foot underground.
When the stump is ground, it will mix evenly with the soil, and will remove any need for additional filling or to level the ground.
Stump removal means that the stump is pulled completely from the earth. As you can imagine, this usually involves a significant amount of force, but Folsom Tree Service uses high quality machines with the necessary power to get the job done.
Which Is Preferable?
Overall, which option is preferable between stump grinding and removal? Stump grinding is actually used more often, because it is easier to do, utilizing more efficient tools, and leaves the environment in a far less messy state.
That being said, complete stump removal will undoubtedly be the better option if you need to eliminate both the stump and the roots to ensure that there is absolutely zero remaining chance for regrowth.
Something else to keep in mind as well is the fact that stump removal is always more expensive than stump grinding, so grinding will likely be a superior option if you are on a budget. (916) 260-2937 for a quote for your tree stump.
