Stump grinding is a way to remove an old stump from your property, after the tree has been cut down. If it’s a small stump, you can rent a stump grinder and do it yourself, but it’s always a safer option to hire a professional, with the right training and insurance to come do it for you. If you have several stumps or really large ones, it’s really best to have the large equipment with a professional operator.
A stump grinder is a machine (in various sizes) with a a spinning disk of “teeth” that grind through the wood, to remove the stump.
There is definitely “mess” involved with this process, but a professional will leave your property cleaned up, and stump free, so you won’t have to mow around it any more!
