1. Is Stump Grinding Different from Stump Removal?

Yes. Stump removal involves digging out the entire stump androot system, which can be a lengthy and labor-intensive process. Stump grindinginvolves using a machine to grind the stump down into small pieces, which canthen be used as mulch or removed from the site.

2. Is Stump Grinding More Cost-effective Than Stump Removal?

3. How Deep Does Stump Grinding Go?

Most stump grinding machines have a maximum depth of 12-15inches. However, it isn’t often necessary to go this deep. Nic’s Tree Worksprofessionals evaluate your tree stump and grind it to a necessary depthaccording to the stump size and the property owner’s plans. Smaller trees aretypically ground until the stump is completely gone (6-15 inches). Larger treesmay require the maximum depth to prevent regrowth and to level the ground.

Most Minnesota tree species do not grow back after beingground away. This includes pines, oaks, maples, poplars, cedars, river birch,and Leyland cypresses. Other wood species can sprout from roots, but not often.These include gum, hickory, cherry, and holly trees. We grind these as deep aspossible to prevent regrowth.
