If you have already had trees cut down, but you have stumps littering your property, it could be beneficial to you to have those stumps removed. If the stump is a live stump, this means that, whatever tree was growing from it, could grow back. It may take a while, but over time, you will then be faced with the same problem. Stumps can also present hazards to vehicles driving through your property, or people walking, as they could be tripping hazards.
One of the easiest ways to get your stump out of the ground, is to pull it out. In this removal process, we use a winch system (if available), or a chain, which is wrapped around the stump and then tied to a heavy vehicle. Once the winch/chain is secured, the vehicle will drive forward; slowly ripping the stump from the ground. This process usually takes a few tries, as the goal is to not cause damage to the vehicle. Depending on the root system of the stump, this process may be relatively painless, or it may take a good amount of work.
If the stump that you are trying to remove is a smaller stump, it may be possible to dig it out of the ground. The benefit of this process is that, because the excavation is controlled, shovels and saws can be used to cut through any existing root systems. This means that the stump will, for sure, be eradicated and a tree will not grow back. This process typically also leaves a much smaller hole. And, because digging a stump out can be done by hand, this eliminates the need for machinery, heavy vehicles and a winch system.
Benefits of Removal
The benefits of stump removal are plentiful. Removing a stump means that the tree, which it belonged to, will not grow back. Removing the stump, effectively kills whatever was growing in that location. Removing a stump can also allow for the ground surrounding it to be level and smooth; which means that vehicles can access it without worrying about ruining tired or undercarriages. In addition, taking stumps out of the ground, can eliminate the risk of people tripping over them, and hurting themselves in the process. Lastly, removing stumps makes for a much more beautiful landscape; giving nice, open views of your property, without obstructions.
Uses for Wood
One of the great things about stump removal is that, once removed, you have an excess of wood. This wood can be used for a few different things. If the wood is not rotten, it can be sectioned, and then sold, to wood companies. Depending on the amount of wood you get, this could lead to some tidy profits. If you aren’t in the business of selling the wood, the stumps can also be cut down, and then used as firewood during the colder winter months. If neither of these options appeal to you, we can simply dispose of the stump for you.
