There are many reasons to have a tree stump removed from your property. A stump will get in the way when planting a new tree or garden, for instance. In this case, a complete stump removal might be your best option. If you are wanting to plant a new tree or re-landscape your property give us a call.
Thinking about doing it yourself?
If you have a lot of time on your hands, or a lot of energy you could probably dig out your tree stump on your own. If you go this route, we recommend having the local teenager do it for you. Digging out a tree stump by hand can take days, and trust us, it’s hard work. In fact, tree stumps are often quite a bit larger underground than the tops of them might suggest. So if you’re digging it out yourself, don’t forget the energy drinks and make sure you have a few days set aside.
Another option some people ask us about is using a chemical decomposer. When thinking about stump removal, some people turn to this method to quicken the decomposition of their stump. Decomposition is a natural process, and by human standards, it is incredibly slow. There is no chemical on the market that will decompose a tree stump over night, or even in a matter of weeks. Some of these chemicals will actually accelerate the decomposition of your stump! However keep in mind that natural complete decomposition takes years, so even if you cut that time in half you’ll be waiting a while.
Lastly, some homeowners try to burn their stump away. Please consider several things before attempting to burn your tree stump. One, please ensure that you are never leaving a burning stump unattended. No one wants to start a wildfire over something as small as a tree stump! To reduce your chances of starting a fire, burn your stump during winter - a bonfire on a snowy night could be a great idea. Two, keep in mind that you’ll most likely have the opposite problem. It’s likely you’ll be unable to keep the stump burning. This is because stumps are mostly underground, where oxygen is naturally lower. This will likely smother your fire. If you attempt to burn your stump, please be responsible.
If any of these methods seem time consuming, dangerous, or even just plain tedious it’s because they probably are. If you don’t want to take on these methods on your own - give our company a call. We can grind your stump down flush with the ground, or even remove it completely. All of our services are priced affordably and delivered by friendly faces.
We look forward to hearing from you! Don’t hesitate to call us for all of your stump removal needs.
