There are plenty of reasons why people end up leaving stumps behind when they cut down trees. Some reasons are more justified than others. If you have a stump though that you feel you can do without grinding the stump could be a good option. In a sense, you are going to be able to reduce the stump to almost nothing. Without necessarily having to pluck the stumps and roots out of the ground. Which is basically the reason why the stump was not removed in the first place. People didn’t want to have to deal with the damage that removing the full stump could have on the lawn!
Removal or Grinding
This is basically a continuation of what we were just talking about. At times people are afraid of having a stump fully removed because they would have to deal with tearing up the lawn to do so. This is where grinding becomes a very viable option. If, of course, you are able to grind the stump correctly. We literally cringe when we see grinding procedures that cause major damage to the lawn around the stump. If you have those results then you should think about just removing it completely in any case you are already going to have to repair the lawn!
Stump Removal With Heavy Duty Machinery
One of the reasons why some individuals or even companies are not able to grind a stump without damaging the surrounding area is that they just don’t have the equipment to do so effectively. When you don’t have a heavy-duty stump grinder to do the job for you, you have to grind with a shovel and sometimes a chainsaw. The results don’t tend to be great. If you want good results then call the best San Diego tree service!
The Best Time of The Year To Grind Or Remove A Stump
We could say that the winter or the fall are the best times of the year to remove a stump. Especially if your lawn is actually not well kept. If you are moving into a new home and you want to upgrade all of the things that feature outdoors this can be a good place to start. Especially if we are within these times of the year. The reason behind this is that even if there is some damage done to the surrounding area it can be repaired in time for you to have a great looking lawn in the spring and the summer.
