    Tree Surgeons - Stump Grinding

    If a tree has been cut to ground level, the portion of the tree remaining in the ground is called the stump. Often it is necessary to remove the stump if the tree was situated on a grassed lawn area. Tree stumps can be physically removed at any time but paying tree surgeons to remove stumps when they are felling the tree is the cheapest and most convenient option. There are four main stump removal methods: digging the stump out by hand, using a stump removal chemical to speed up the rate of decomposition, using a hired stump grinder to grind away the stump or hiring a professional to remove it for you.

    Tree Stump Removal by Stump Grinder

    A Stump Grinder is essentially a cutting head driven by an engine. They come in a variety of sizes, the smallest size can be fitted into most gardens but larger units need good access. The stump grinder carves the stump into woodchips which can be used to backfill the resulting hole or as a mulch. If you are skilled with power tools, you could consider renting a stump grinder and doing the job yourself. However, if you choose this option, you need to follow all necessary safety procedures and make sure you completely understand how to use the tool.

    Tree stump extraction can be the most difficult part of removing a tree, the cost of hiring a professional tree surgeon depends on how large the stump is, the root system, soil conditions and how much of the stump you want to extract. However the average cost of stump grinding is between £50 and 100 per stump. Stump grinders do not remove the entire root, they only grind out a few inches below ground surface.

    Hiring a Tree Surgeon for Stump Grinding

    You can find reliable tree surgeons by doing some research on the Internet. The simplest method is to click on the "post your job" button on this page to have 3 local tree surgeons get in touch with you to provide advice and prices. Try contacting tree surgeons with good independent reviews from previous customers. Make a few calls and invite them to inspect the stump that needs grinding out. Then compare quotes to get an idea of who offers the most competitive prices.

    Make sure they are properly insured before they start work, it is very important to find a tree surgeon who has a comprehensive liability insurance policy otherwise you could be liable for any damage or injury. Be prepared to wait for a while before the tree surgeon can begin your project, good tree surgeons are in short supply and they tend to be booked for weeks in advance.
