A stump grinder working to remove a stump

Why should I remove a stump?

Whether you choose to have a complete stump removal or grinding stump, there are some general benefits to removing a stump from your property:



    • Leaving slowly-decaying stumps in the ground will soon become attractive to pests like termites and carpenter ants, who can then migrate from the stump into your home


    • The sight of a tree stump left abandoned in the middle of your yard is an unsightly one that can ruin your landscape and may lower the value of your home


  • Until you remove the stump, you cannot mow your lawn properly as the lawnmower may come into contact with the stump or one of its many roots and damage the mower

Stump Grinding versus Stump Removal

Grinding stump refers to the process wherein a stump grinder is used to grind the stump to below the surface. Is it right for you? Here are its pros and cons:


  • It is not as labor-intensive as a full removal
  • It is more efficient and can be completed in a short amount of time
  • It is a more environmentally-friendly option as it does not involve the use of chemicals like a complete tree stump removal


  • It does not remove the tree’s enormous root system that exists underground and may be as deep as 12ft
  • The old roots may stop the growth of new trees near the old stump
  • It is possible that a sprout will reappear even after the stump has been ground down

complete stump removal service involves complete removal of the stump as well as its root system below-ground. Here are the pros and cons of choosing this service:


  • It completely eliminates both tree stumps and the entire root system, with no chance of a resprout
  • The service leaves behind a completely clean slate for you to plant on, decorate, or build on


  • It is a more intrusive and labor-intensive process compared to a stump grind process
  • It may take a long time to complete the service
  • A chemical mixture will be needed to soften the root syste
