Once a tree has been felled you are left with a stump which, in most cases, you will want to remove. You may wish to stop regrowth, to replant or grass over the area, or to simply remove the stump because it is unsightly. Dead stumps can also cause problems by playing host to fungal root diseases.
It’s essential a stump is removed in the right way. Stump killer must be applied after felling, after which there are several ways to remove the dead stump. The stumps of smaller trees can be pulled out with a winch; root systems can be grubbed out by hand or with a mini excavator; or a special machine known as a stump grinder can be used to reduce the stump to sawdust. We have access to different size stump grinding machines, so we are able to reach even difficult to access stumps.
Before carrying out stump removal, we survey the underground surroundings for services such as fibre optic cables that might be disturbed by the work. Where necessary, we notify the local authorities and get them to turn off services such as water.
