When we moved to our first property, we had a near-miss when part of a tree came down during a storm. Luckily, it missed our house, but it did flatten my gorgeous rose garden. Tree maintenance is very important in Australia, and my blog deals with all the different ways you can maintain the health of your trees. From pruning to identifying tree rot, find out how to look after your trees, so they don't come tumbling down when the winds pick up.




How Stump Grinding Can Remove A Tree For Good

If you have a tree in your garden that is taking up space, blocking light or causing a nuisance, stump grinding is one of the most effective and efficient ways to remove it. The stump grinding process ensures the tree is not able to grow again and removes the stump completely so you can plant other items, pave over the area or build a structure. In this article, take a look at how stump grinding works and how it is one of the best ways to remove unwanted tree stumps.

How Stump Grinding Removes Tree Stumps

Once the tree has been cut down as far as it can go, you are left with an annoying stump. Until this is removed, nothing can be planted, laid or built. The problem is that stumps simply cannot be pulled from the ground due to the strong and widespread root system beneath the ground. This is where stump grinding comes in. Using a mechanical stump grinding machine, a tree surgeon will grind into the stump, effectively turning it into sawdust. This, along with leaf mulch from the rest of your tree, is great for sprinkling over the garden. The end result is a neat hole and no trace of any tree. 

How To Arrange Tree Removal

A tree services company will typically offer a range of services including tree trimming, tree removal and stump grinding. They will be able to give you advice on the best way to remove a problematic tree from your garden and will have a range of machines to do the job quickly and professionally. Whether you have one tree to remove or a number of trees around your garden, they will be able to provide a quote and plan of action for tree removal. 

Stump grinding can also be effective at grinding out the stubborn branches that dense shrubs leave behind once removed. The process can also be used on any old stumps you have in your garden that are causing a trip hazard or which are preventing you from landscaping your garden.

Before hiring a tree services company, take a good look at your garden to see what jobs need doing. It will be much more cost effective to arrange one visit that takes care of all your stump removal and tree trimming requirements. Once removed, you would never believe there had once been a tree growing in your garden.
