Before we get into why you should call in an expert for your stump removal and stump grinding needs, let’s take a look at what these services entail.
Stump removal involves extracting not only the stump, but also the roots attached to the stump. If the roots of the stump you want to remove spread throughout your property, it can eventually devastate a significant portion of your garden.
Crushing stumps is a simpler process. It involves using a stump grinder to shave the remaining trees until they are gone. The roots are not touched during this process.
What is the difference between stump removal and stump crushing?
Stump removal is a much more complex and time-consuming process than stump crushing. You need professional, durable gear like the Bobcat. On the other hand, stump breaking is done using a lighter piece of equipment, a stump shredder.
Stump removal can damage your garden while removing the roots, but crushing the stump will cut the stump all the way to the ground and leave the rest of your property undamaged. This makes stump removal more helpful on construction sites, and stump breaking is good for existing buildings and homes.
Stump removal is more expensive than stump grinding, primarily due to the time and equipment involved.
The main commonality between stump removal and stump breaking is that it must be performed by a professional, an arborist trained in tree planting, restoration and maintenance.
