What is Involved in Stump Grinding?

Yukkas removed and Involved in Stump GrindingRemoving 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:

  • Assess the stump and ensure there are no hazards
  • Position the stump grinder and begin grinding
  • Determine the depth required to ensure correct removal of stump
  • Fill the hole created by grinding the stump
  • Thorough clean-up of area

Assess the stump and ensure there are no hazards

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. 

Position the stump grinder and begin grinding

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.

Determine the depth required to ensure correct removal of stump

Cotton Palm Involved in Stump GrindingWhen 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.

Fill the hole created by grinding the stump

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.

Thorough clean-up of area

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.

How Deep Can You Stump Grind?

Big stumpWhen 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.

Some of their most common queries relate to the depth and process of removing stumps including:

  • How Deep Can You Grind?
  • Why Can’t you Dig Deeper?
  • What Happens After You’ve Ground Out The Stump?

How Deep Can You Grind?

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.

Why Can’t You Grind Deeper?

Stump goneSurrounding 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.

How much does Stump Grinding Cost

Armac Stump Grinding-3When 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.

What Is Involved with The Cost?

  • Size of the Stump
  • Filling of Holes
  • Machinery Used
  • Access to the Stump

Size of the Stump

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?

Filling of Holes

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.

Stump removalMachinery Used

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.

Access to the Stump

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.

  • Where it is located
  • Accessibility
  • What Type

Didn’t areas need to have different considerations this is why we can’t give you a stump grinding price over the phone.

Underground Services

Nothing is what it seems on the surface, that is why Armac will work closely with nearby farmers and rural properties to minimise the chances of damaging important infrastructure.

Size of the Stump

No tree is the same and either is the root system, so assessing first the shape and size of the stump will ensure the right equipment is used for the removal of your stump.

Where it is located

Stump removalTrees can grow in all shapes and sizes and sometimes homes can be built around the trees so when one is removed all areas need to be taken in consideration and if stumps are near pipework then these areas need to be isolated first.


If stumps are to be accessed in the backyards, the best possible access areas will need to be organised for equipment to be able to get the stump removed.

What Type

Certain trees have wider stumps, short or longer root systems and depending on the condition of the stump the removal will determine the process. If there is fencing nearby, pipework these are all factors to consider.
