We are required to cut trees which are growing in our backyards when they are prone to damage our houses or get infected with tree diseases. It is often necessary to remove hazardous trees before they become a problem. Cutting such trees is a difficult task, but tree stump removal is considered more cumbersome than even cutting the trees.
Tree stump removal is vital because ignoring it in the ground can promote wood decay, fungi, rotting, and soil pathogens. There is the chance of attracting pests that may carry diseases.
There are four types of stump grinding methods:
Manual handlebar machines
Truck mount machines
The most common way to get rid of tree stumps is to have them ground below ground level. Often professional tree removal companies will do stump grinding. If the stump is not too large it could be removed whole, without grinding, but this is impractical for larger tree stumps.
Once the stump is removed or ground down to a level well below the surface, the best method of repairing the hole left in the ground is to fill with topsoil and seed with grass that matches the surroundings. Fill this hole with topsoil that is similar to the surrounding soil.
