A stump grinder is a power tool that removes tree stumps by means of a rotating cutting disk that chips or ‘grinds’ away the wood. We can remove stumps of any size to provide an aesthetically pleasing result and to stop the growth of fungus or other decay matter. Stump grinding is usually required if you want to concrete or pave over the area, replant over it and to also remove the unsightly stump from the tree for a more aethestically pleasing result. SCMTS Arbor Works has access to a range of stump grinders to suit the needs of any job.
No the stump does not need to be grinded however we will only be able to cut the stump as low as is possible taking into account surrounding objects or garden beds etc.
Stump grinding does incur an additional charge and comes down to personal preference and what the future plans are for the location.
No, once it is grinded it will not grow back
We leave stump grinding shavings on site and use them to level out the ground. We can spread them over your garden and and leave the site nice and tidy. We can take the shavings off site but this requires an additional charge as it is quite labour intensive so it is a better option to use it as garden cover.
