If you’re stuck with an unsightly tree stump in your yard, you’re probably wondering what you can do about it. Tree root systems grow outwards and spread throughout your yard which can make removing tree stumps quite challenging. So if you’re stuck with a stump, here are some tips on how to remove these eyesores…

Preparing and Cleaning Your Worksite Can Be Backbreaking and Tedious Work

You will need to remove all stones, rocks, and hard debris around the work site. You need to dig out around the stump so your grinder can do it’s job without getting caught up in the mud. Cleaning the site after the grinding can be tough and time consuming for those not used to hard labor.

You Probably Don’t Have the Right Tools or Skills

Different sized stumps and different types of wood require different types of tree stump grinders. It takes experience to use to know the right grinder for the job. If your stump is large or on a hill, then you aren’t going to be able to rent one of those small grinders for the job. Stump grinders can be very dangerous to the untrained operator. Tools and gear that are needed in most cases…

  • The right stump grinder for the job
  • Shovel
  • Chainsaw
  • Heavy Rakes
  • Safety goggles
  • Safety ear protection
  • Dust masks
  • Work gloves
