Shredding with a grinder, burning and digging out are some of the ways of tree stump removal. By using the shredding process there are other equipment’s’ that can be used hand in hand with the grinder such as shovel, mattock, chainsaw and a rake. The mattock or shovel is used to clear the rocks around the tree stump. A chainsaw is used to reduce the size of the tree stump by cutting as much as possible. Reducing the size of the tree stump by cutting is done to level it to the ground. The tree stump removal is by use of a grinder which completely removes the tree stump.
A rotating cutting disc that chips away the wood is the means by which the tree stump is removed by using a stump grinder. A stump grinder is also referred to as a stump cutter. The size of stump grinders are either as large as trucks or medium sized as a lawn mower. Stump grinders are known to accomplish their tasks by means of a high speed disk with teeth that grinds the stump while the roots is chipped into small chips.
In order to perform stump grinding then a qualified arborist or landscaper is contacted. Most typical stump grinders are known to incorporate a cutter wheel with fixed carbide teeth. Hydraulic cylinders control the movement of cutters that push the cutter head laterally through the stump while raising and lowering it.
A more challenging and time consuming process is the stump removal. Removing the roots along with the stump make tree stump removal a challenging process. Removing the root ball is such a task as it can grow four to ten times the size of the trunk and can be well rooted to the ground making it even harder and tiresome to remove from the ground. Taking a grinder and grinding the stump to a pulp is the process involved in stump grinding and is a simpler process.

Rocks are removed using a shovel or mattock from around the base of the stump. The chainsaw is then used to trim the stump close to the ground which is not necessary but speeds up the process. The grinder wheel is raised a few inches above the stump by use of a hydraulic lever. The machine is then driven forward to position the wheel directly over the stump’s front edge. By slowly swinging the wheel from side to side the wood is cleared.
