When To Remove A Tree Stump
Tree stumps can become a potential hazard especially if they are small as they can be hard to see at times. If you are a property owner with children you may want your tree stump removed to decrease the risk of your child falling over. The tree doctors will leave your garden a safer place for everyone.
Tree stumps can be physically removed at any time. However it is best that you get the tree stump removed as soon as possible. This is because the stump will start to decay and attract termites, wood borers and insects such as ants and beetles as well when leaving a tree stump there is potential for new tree growth to occur, with new sprouts springing up around the base of the tree. Once the root of a tree has been fully removed, home or land owners can then fill the space with top soil and turf, creating a more aesthetically appealing space.
How Does A Stump Grinder Work?
Most stump grinders are moderately sized machines which are mounted on heavy duty wheels connected with a long handle. The handle enables the user to push and pull the machine. The handle can be adjusted to set the machine to your preferred height. The Tree Doctors have machines with braked wheels. This allows more control when grinding a stump when involved in side to side movements. Whilst being powered by an engine, the machine has a sharp blade underneath. This is used to cut the stump. The Tree Doctors have all the correct equipment and most machines are labelled with a cutting capacity, both above and below the ground. Our tree stump removal service works by cutting down the wood until the stump is completely gone. The machine starts to cut the wood into sawdust, as this is the easiest way to remove the waste from your property.
After The Tree Stump Has Been Removed
Once the tree stump has been removed, home or land owners can then fill the hole with soil and turf and cover the hole up to ground level. This is then not a potential hazard, especially if the tree stump was small as it can be hard to see. Also your garden is now a safer place for everyone.
After the tree stump has been removed it can make a big visual and practical difference to your commercial or private property, either by giving you more space or making the area appear more attractive.
