Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How deep can it go?

A. Stump grinder will grind approximately 300mm below the surface, which is often enough to grind stump bole out entirely.

Q. Will it re-grow?

A. Only a few species will re-grow from roots, these can be chemically treated if required.

Q. What happens to the roots?

A. Stump grinding concentrates on the removal of the main stump and along any prominent surface roots if required. This will create more grindings and ground disturbance. Pros and cons can be discussed at a site survey. Remaining roots will rot away in time.

Q. What’s left?

A. The aim is to cause minimal ground disturbance and leave the site neat and tidy. Once the stump is ground the spoil is put back in the hole and heaped in the area where the stump was located. This will naturally settle and the remaining can be used as a mulch around the garden.
