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.

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.

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.

Trees 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.

When deciding to remove tree stumps from your property, it pays to be well informed before you decide on a contractor and when to get it done.

Armac carry all the necessary equipment and experience to remove stumps efficiently and safely, with a minimum of fuss and for an affordable price. Widely experienced in all areas of tree removal, stump grinding, earth works and yard cleanup, Armac can assist with all enquiries to keep you informed as to how long it will take to grind out your tree stumps.
Grinding a stump will depend on a few factors, including:
If a stump is of a significant size, it will take longer the grind out. Stump grinding blades come in only one size and when the stump is removed, it produces a significant amount of mulch, which can be spread around your garden or taken away from the site for a small additional cost. Large stumps take longer because the workload is increased in duration.
Even if your tree stump is small, it may be hard to access. Stumps that are embedded behind retaining walls, near other established garden or close to fence lines are tricky to get to so will take a little longer to grind out. It may also take longer in labour time to manoeuvre around the obstacles and safety equipment to be set up to remove the stump.
A brand new stump from a tree that has been freshly removed will undoubtedly still be moist and hard, whereas an aged stump may have been weathered and be slightly softer. If the stump is hard yakka to grind, this will inevitably take longer to remove, whereas if the wood is dry and easily broken up, the job should be much quicker.
