Orlando Stump Grinding
Homeowners who have had a tree cut down on their property often find themselves with the left behind tree stump to contend with. Stumps left behind from tree cutting can be variously described as unsightly, taking up valuable gardening space, and even hazardous. Although tree stumps can be left in the ground after felling, and covered with ground covers, this can lead to problems with suckering where new shoots arise from the trunk and roots.
Completely dead stumps won’t form suckers, but they can play host to root diseases and, as such, aren’t worth leaving in and taking the risk.
Physical removal of the stump is the best solution and paying tree specialists to do this when felling is the most convenient way. If you’re in a hurry and want the entire stump removed immediately there is no better method than a stump grinder. Stump grinders come in a variety of sizes from the size of a lawn mower to nearly as big as a small car. Most accomplish their task by means of a high-speed disk with specially designed teeth that grind the stump and underground roots into small chips.
