If you’ve ever cut down a tree, you know that’s less than half the problem. Here are some tips for stump removal.
- Sooner is better than later. Stumps can be trip hazards and attract pests. Do your best not to leave stumps in the ground for too long.
- Consider a stump grinder. Stump grinding is often safer than a simple removal. A stump grinder turns the aboveground part of the stump into sawdust.
- Patience is key. Removing a tree stump requires care and attention to detail.
Depending on the depth and reach of the roots, there could be underground pipes/wires involved.
