Winter has well and truly arrived in the South West. Seasonal storms are in full force leaving many storm damaged trees requiring removal. When having a tree removed, it is recommended to have the stump removed too. Why? An exposed tree stump is not only a safety hazard but over time, can decay and make a perfect new home for termites.
Whether an existing tree and stump that you would like removed or a tree stump left from previously cutting down a tree, there are many factors that must be considered before a stump is ground. Read on to learn what these are including:
There are many different species of trees of varying sizes, shapes and root systems. The type of tree stump being ground will help decide the best machinery and equipment to use to effectively grind the stump. When having a stump ground, it is imperative to ensure the roots are completely removed to stop the tree growing back over time.
The location of a tree stump and its surroundings must be considered before a stump is ground. This includes buildings, fences, underground services and plumbing pipes. If a stump is bordering on a neighbouring property, neighbours may need to be informed as access to their property may be required.
Grinding a tree stump requires the use of specialised machinery. If your tree stump is located at the back of a property, the best way to allow machinery to access this area must be determined. Smaller stump grinding machinery may be required that can access narrow areas and up steps.

The removal of trees can be dangerous work and is recommended to only be undertaken by those trained and equipped to do so. No matter the size of the tree, ARMAC has the specialist machinery required to complete the job, removing the chances of damaging important infrastructure.
Removing a tree is dangerous work requiring the knowledge, expertise and equipment of a professional. Many people assume after having a tree removed professionally, the final part of the task, removing the stump, they can do on their own. It’s straightforward, you just dig out the stump then fill in the hole and it’s done, right? Wrong! Stumps stay attached to a tree’s root system, meaning stumps can survive for a long time after a tree has been cut down. An effective way to remove a tree stump is stump grinding. This involves using a machine with sharp teeth on a rotating disc that cuts the stump of a tree into very small pieces.
Interested to learn more about what is involved in the process of stump grinding? The steps involved include:
Removing a stump normally requires a hole larger than the width of the stump itself. Safety is imperative. Before the stump grinding machinery can be bought onsite, a thorough site inspection is performed to assess there are no hazards to the person operating the machinery or working near the area where the stump is.
The stump grinder will be positioned so the rotating disc is over the stump. As the stump is ground it is turned into small wood chips, also known as mulch, which can be used in your garden.
When grinding a stump, it is important to ensure the stump is ground deep enough it will decay. If the depth is not correct, the tree can grow back, or the stump can attract insects or diseases which can spread to nearby vegetation.
After grinding the stump, for safety, it is important the hole left is filled with the mulch produced. Depending on the kind of tree stump that was ground, this hole can be a significant depth. Filling this hole in, will leave you with a clean space to work with for new plantings or paving.
Once the job is complete, there will be no trace of the tree stump at all. A thorough clean-up will be performed leaving the area neat and tidy.

When you hire a landscaper or tree removalist to cut down trees on your property, the quoted price usually only includes the chopping down of the trees, not the removal of the base or stump. This task is usually left to the property owner, and is a back-breaker to say the least! You can use all means of equipment to try and dig deep enough to pull the stump out, only to end up with a large hole and the stump still firmly embedded in the earth. You need a professional; someone who knows how far to dig and which way to grind to get that stump out easily, and save your back and precious time in the process.
Armac carry all the necessary equipment and experience to remove stumps efficiently and safely, with a minimum of fuss and for an affordable price. They know everything there is to know about stump grinding and can answer all of your queries regarding not only stump grinding, however the safe removal of trees and methods to clean up the site when they are done.
Some of their most common queries relate to the depth and process of removing stumps including:
Standard regulations state that you may only grind a stump 200-300mm below the surrounding ground level. This has just as much to do with the size of the equipment and the blade of the grinder as it does the stump itself. Larger stumps take longer and cost more, as more time and labour is required to grind the stump. The blade is only so big, so little chunks need to be removed, for the safety of both the operator and the maintenance of the equipment.
Surrounding services, such as local water lines, power lines and amenity sources run in the ground, often not obvious to the property owner. These can be damaged if cutting equipment runs too close to them. Footpaths can be damaged if a stump is located at the front of a property, not to mention garden beds and fences that can be costly to replace if damaged by the vibration of large machinery or blades.
Armac prides itself on their ability to leave a site like it’s never had a tree there at all. The stump is mulched and the hole is filled, the ground is levelled and work area is left clear and ready for new garden dreams to come true. For a small additional cost, the mulch created from grinding the stump can be removed.

When it comes to stump grinding there are many things that can affect the removal cost. Stumps are not all the same just the same as trees are not the same. The price for stump grinding will depend on the sort of ground that is around the stump, access to the area and other factors.
Getting a quote will give you an idea of what you will be looking at when it comes to pricing and the size of the stump in metres will be a different costing as it requires extra work and excavation.
Trees come in different sizes and so do their stumps, the density of a stump will also be different, for instance removing a stump of a healthy tree to a rotten one will take different measures for removal. From small to large will depend on what is also required when grinding. Another area that will affect the costing is whether you are looking to have a tree and its stump removed or the stump only as the tree has already been cut down?
Once the tree and stump are removed, it is for good safety that the hole is filled and depending on the kind of tree stump that is being ground, this hole could be of a significant depth. Having a hole filled looks more appealing a tidier after the grinding work has been done and you will be left with a clean space to work with again.
If ground that the grinder needs to go through is of concrete, stone or other kinds of surface consistency then the wear on the grinding teeth will be different, Correct machinery is specifically selected for the certain task at hand.
As stumps come in different shapes and sizes, so do front and backyards, there could be garden beds, pools, other trees, fencing and gates to be considered to get the job done, without minimal disruption.
