Stump Grinding

Tree Stump Removal Grand Rapids

A natural consequence of having your tree cut down is the remaining stump.

At Aaron’s Tree Service, we understand how stumps may not be a welcome sight on your property.

When determining whether or not to keep tree stumps in your yard, consider the following questions:

  • Is the stump an eyesore?
  • Is the stump worth having to mow around?
  • Has anyone tripped over the stump lately? Is it a safety hazard?
  • Is the stump taking up valuable space that could be used for something better?
  • Will it bother me when vegetation starts growing on the stump?

If you said “yes” to any of these questions, it may be worth your time to call Aaron’s Tree Service. With more than 20 years experience in the tree business, we are more than qualified to handle any stumps that need to be eliminated.

The ease in which the stumps can be grinded depends on several factors dependent on its tree species. For example, pine tree stumps are more easily removed than those belonging to deciduous trees. The reason lies in their respective root systems. Deciduous trees have deep roots, while pine tree roots stay closer to the surface.

While it may be fairly obvious that the size of the tree stump has an impact on its removability, the age of the tree also plays a role during stump grinding. Tree stumps that are older tend to be removed more easily. Younger stumps are more resistant to grinding and may take more time to remove.

Stump grinding is something that can be done by yourself, if you feel up to the challenge. There are places where you can rent or buy a stump grinder. However, it is very important to consider your own personal limits. While some people may not flinch from having to grind multiple stumps, be sure to consider the condition of each stump before endeavoring to do so. In circumstances where the stumps are young, large, or deciduous, it may be wise to let us do the work. Our rates are competitive and our workers are trained to be efficient and neat.
