Stump grinding is the process of removing the entire stump of a tree, allowing the area to be used for other purposes like new landscaping. Stump grinding is a more efficient process than most others available, and homeowners will not have to deal with the eyesore that once was on their property. Those that choose not to remove their stumps can expect a long decomposition process, whereas stump grinding can get rid of the problem in almost no time at all. At Arbor Safe, we offer stump grinding to our customers that are looking for a quick, minimally invasive solution to get rid of their stumps.
Benefits of Stump Grinding
Tree stumps left on a property can not only be annoying but dangerous as well in Boise. Stump grinding can allow you to regain your overall aesthetic and even plant flowers or shrubbery on top of where the stump once was. This can help improve your property value, especially when you have an already small space to work with. Additionally, stumps can house diseases and insects that could spread to your healthy plants if not properly taken care of in a timely manner. Grinding down the stump prevents this spread and eliminates the future ability for the tree to regrow (and force you to get the tree removed again through the same process).
After having a tree removed, your stump serves as a trip hazard on your property and should be dealt with to protect your family, especially if you often have children running around. If someone were to get hurt on your property because of the stump, a lot of money on medical bills could be spent. In the long run, it makes more sense to deal with your stump now than to wait years for it to decompose on its own. Stump grinding can make it easier to mow your lawn (you won’t have to worry about your blades hitting it anymore!), plant new landscaping, and enjoy your property once again.
The Process of Stump Grinding
Grinding down a stump tends to be the last step in removing a tree from a property. When you use Arbor Safe Tree Service in Boise, keeping the owner in the loop is second nature. We will work with you through every step of the process, so you know what to expect. Additionally, you will never have to worry about cleanup or hauling away excessive amounts of sawdust because we provide this at no extra charge!
Because stump grinding is often done on stumps that are just a few inches high, we are able to use our state-of-the-art equipment to quickly and efficiently grind the stump below grade level (and until there is no trunk left). We also take care of the root flares, which are the part of the tree that widens into the roots and can allow the tree to regrow if not properly eliminated. The rest of the roots left in the soil simply break down after the stump grinding process and do not require any further care. This is a less invasive option on your property for getting rid of stumps and allows the homeowner to quickly use the area for other purposes.
