  • Condition of the Stump

Size of the Stump

Cypress Pine and Eucalypt completely removed nowIf 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.

Location of Stump

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.

Condition of 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.
