Tree Stump Removal
Whilst a tree removal may be necessary to make your property safe, secure and looking beautiful, it does leave behind an unwanted byproduct: the tree stump. In most cases, the stump is an eyesore, and can also prove to be a hazard, especially if you have young children or vulnerable adults using your green space. Because of both aesthetics and safety, it’s important that a tree stump is removed quickly and efficiently, which is where Tree Squadron comes in.
When we conduct a tree removal, we’ll discuss the options available to you so that you can make a decision on stump and tree removal before the work’s even begun. But even if you haven’t had any work done by us before, we’re happy to discuss your tree stump removal with you.
We use a process called stump grinding, which means once a tree has been cut down and only the stump remains, specialist stump grinder equipment is used in order to remove what’s left sticking out of the ground. The quickest, safest and most cost-efficient way to get rid of unwanted tree stumps is to have them removed from below ground level using the stump grinding process.
Tree Squadron carries out expert and professional tree stump removal via stump grinding in Cardiff and the surrounding areas. Whilst some companies will use chemicals to remove the tree stump, at Tree Squadron we want to protect the environment, so we only use specialist, environmentally-friendly stump grinding equipment which our staff are fully trained and insured in operating.
Stump Grinding in Cardiff
The best way to get rid of unwanted tree stumps is to have them removed from below ground level by using a machine to remove tree stumps. Once a tree has been cut down and just the stump remains, specialist stump grinding equipment is required in order to remove the remaining stumps.
What is a Stump Grinder?
A stump grinder chews away at the tree stump until nothing is left. The powerful rotating blade on the grinder spins rapidly, ripping the stump into shreds. When the blade’s teeth cut into the wood, the operator guides the machine over the entire stump, taking the stump down to a spot well below ground level, which allows the area to be re-turfed or re-planted.
Stump grinding leads to a lot of wood chips, and these can be repurposed in a variety of ways. They can either be placed back in the hole to decay, be used to add mulch to your plant beds, or added to your compost bin. Or, if you prefer, we can take all the waste away with us.
Our stump grinding machine is big and powerful enough to grind out any size stump, but small enough to fit through gates and doors to access rear gardens.
Why Remove a Tree Stump?
There are a number of reasons why you might want to, and why you probably should, have your tree stump or hedge stump removed. These are just a few:
Tree stump removal can make it easier to make use of your garden’s space, especially if your tree was located in a prominent area of your garden. Removing a tree stump can make room for patios, sheds, decking and even outdoor offices.
Stump removal allows you to create a level and smooth path or driveway on your property. This could also help to increase your property’s value, as having off-street parking is well sought after by homebuyers.
If a building project is taking place on your property, having the stump removed before the project starts can speed up the building process and make it easier to plan the groundworks.
As well as looking ugly, tree stumps can also be a health risk. A tree stump can lead to slips, trips and falls, and any sharp edges can also pose a further hazard. A tree stump makes any garden unsafe for young children to play in, and tree stump removal eliminates that risk.
Removing a tree stump will make your gardening much easier to do. You wouldn’t have to manoeuvre around the stump with your lawnmower, nor would you need to pick the weeds around the stump either. Removing it also reduces the risk of garden machinery getting damaged by the stump.
A tree stump left in a garden can, and most likely will, invite unwanted critters into your garden. Pests like ants, termites and other wood-eating insects are attracted to tree stumps and bring with them diseases that can easily spread to the healthy trees and shrubs in your garden. Eliminate the risk by having your tree stump removed through stump grinding.
Are there other ways to remove tree stumps?
The only other way to remove a tree stump is by using chemicals that eat away at the wood. However, at Tree Squadron we prefer to use the machine-based stump grinding process, as we believe that adding more chemicals into the environment will only cause harm.
It’s also not recommended that you try to remove a tree stump yourself, as specialist equipment and experience is required to remove an entire tree stump safely. Our team is well experienced in stump removal, and we’re fully qualified and insured too, giving you peace of mind that your tree stump removal will be completed safely and professionally.
