What is Stump Grinding

Stump grinding is the process of grinding a tree stump into mulch. A stump grinder uses a carbide-tip spinning wheel to grind stumps down into fine mulch or sawdust residue, on average between 4 to 6 inches below the ground but can be ground to a depth of 36 inches if needed. This process is much more economical than stump removal, which requires complete excavation. stump grinding only grinds away the stump above ground without removing the roots stump grinding can remove some of the tree’s surface roots that are above ground but is not like stump removal, which is the complete excavation of the stump and roots.
