Is It Better to Grind A Stump or Remove It?

Collie Cot palms2Whether a tree has fallen or been cut down to the stump, the trees roots will still be attached underground. Depending on the kind of tree it is the stump could start to shoot more growth turning into a tree again.  All trees have a different root system, the rule of little tree, little root system is not always the case. Some trees can be healthy and other trees can start to decay which would mean the tree needs to be removed.

Removal of the Tree Stump

As a tree grows so does the root ball, when the root ball expands it can be anywhere from 4-10 times the size of the tree. So, in this case it will make for the stump removal a difficult process. Stump removal can involve the Dardanup Tree2root system needing to be cut and digging the bulk of the stump and lifting the rest away with a crane. Once removed there will be a significant hole where the tree once was.

Stump Grinding Process

Grinding of the tree stump will eliminate having to dig away. After the tree has been cut down to the ground level, the stump grinding process breaks down the stump into smaller pieces and the pieces can then be used as mulch. When the stump is ground it will usually be below the ground surface. Covering this area with dirt will eventually cause the stump to decay, with the root system around it. Be mindful that any removal of tree trunks could disturb the root system, potentially causing damage to paving or structures near by.


Specialised equipment is required for the task at hand and sourcing the expertise of a qualified professional will see that your tree is removed safely.

Stump Grinding or Removal?

Depending on the outcome you want, this will make the decision easier, although the process of stump grinding does take less time or if you are going to plant new trees or gardens, then complete removal may be the way to go.

How Low Does A Stump Need to Be To Be Ground

Stump removalWhen a tree is removed you will be left with what is called the stump. Even though you are glad the tree is removed the stump and the root system could still cause a problem.

Whilst the stump is still protruding out of the ground certain activities will still need to be done around the stump like mowing the lawn. Not to mention the added pests that will source a home in your remaining tree stump.

Stumps can sometimes be left in the most inconvenient of places if your stump is in the location of a garden bed, it will be difficult to grow new vegetation and plant life in the spot until the stump and all is removed.

Trim to Size

When tree branches are not maintained by keeping them tidy they can pose an electrical hazard when interfering with powerlines which could promote a fire. If this can’t be maintained, it would be a good idea to get the tree removed for the future safety.

Cut from the Ground Level

Even when the tree has been cut to a stump the process to create the yard space will only best be achieved when the complete stump has been removed.

How Can Armac Help You This Autumn?

Tree Cutting By Armac Stump GrindingWhen people think Autumn, they predominantly think leaves; the falling, raking and clearing of leaves. But autumn is so much more than just cleaning up the yard of fallen leaves in preparation for winter. Some species of trees, plants and shrubs can be planted at this time, tree’s need to be pruned and lawn needs to be fertilised to allow for growth over the colder months. Preparing your yard in autumn reduces the chances of you having to get out in the cold, wet months of winter to attend to garden issues.

Armac are so much more than just stump removal specialists, they can assist with all areas of yard cleanup and tree removal. We provide the following services that can help you prepare for winter:

  • Tree pruning and removal
  • Yard Cleanup
  • Earthworks

Tree Pruning and Removal

Whilst the winds get stronger and the days get shorter, you may wish to consider having your larger trees pruned or even removed to decrease the chance of a tree falling on your car, shed or home. Large branches can be a safety hazard and trees typically begin to enter dormancy in winter, making it a great time to prune for efficient re-growth.

Yard Cleanup

EarthworksGot a leafy tree? Or does your neighbour? Those fallen leaves cause all sorts of problems when they fall into gutters and pools, clogging up drains and filters. They can also pose slip hazards when they are wet and breed mosquitoes and other insects in their warm, moist nests. Pruning your shrubs and bushes, cleaning up debris and removing possible dangers to your family are all part of the Armac Yard Cleanup service.


Whilst the word earthworks often brings to mind large expansive movement of dirt and rubble, it can refer to the small jobs of driveways and drainage, which is so important when excess water is around your home.
