So, you have had a tree removed or you plan on removing a tree. What do you do about the stump? You have got two options: you either remove the stump along with its roots or simply grind the stump down until it’s hidden in the ground. Whether you want to grind the stump or remove it completely, Sesmas Tree Service is happy to help. We provide quick and reliable stump grinding and stump removal in Atlanta. In this short article, we will describe the two and go over some of their differences. When you are ready to schedule an appointment, just grab the phone and call Sesmas Tree Service to get in contact with a courteous representative.
What Is A Stump Removal?
Just going by the name might make a stump removal seem like a quick job, but there is actually a lot that goes into it. Once you have cut down the tree and removed the limbs, you will often be left with a stump. This stump will naturally decay and its roots will rot over time, but some property owners like to have the stump out of the way as soon as possible.
If you do not want to wait for the natural process, then you can arrange a stump grinding in Atlanta. This is an incredible invasive process that involves forcibly removing the stump and roots from the ground. As you may suspect, this can devastate your yard and leave lawns in ruin. For this reason, many property owners prefer to have the stump grinded down instead.
What Is Stump Grinding?
Stump grinding is more self-explanatory. It involves grinding down the stump as far as 18 inches into the ground. The left of the work is left to nature as the roots and remainder of the stump decay over time. This way, the stump is removed out of sight, eliminating the eyesore and trip hazard. It also saves your yard from being dug up. Granted, stump grinding can leave a hole in the yard, but this is nowhere near as exaggerated as the results of a stump removal.
Which to Go With?
We cannot give you a clear-cut answer because it depends on your preferences and circumstance. Here is a quick summary of the pros and cons of each so that you can make your choice accordingly.
A stump removal completely removes the stump and the roots, eliminating the possibility of regrowth. However, a stump removal in Atlanta is naturally more expensive than a stump grinding as it is more extensive. Factor in the cost of restoring your yard and you can see how removing the stump completely is more costly.
Grinding the stump is quicker and fairly effective, but it leaves the roots behind, leaving the possibility of regrowth. It can also leave behind sawdust. If you do not clean well enough, then you risk a termite infiltration.
