Chemical Stump Removal vs Grinding

There are a couple different ways to go about removing an unwanted stump from the ground on your property. Some folks try to take on chemical stump removal at home, but many leave stump grinding to the professionals. If you’re looking for stump grinding options that are both safe and effective, keep reading. 

Stump Grinding

The most common way, and the way that we prefer and recommend to our clients, is to use a large, commercial grade stump grinder. Not only is this the most effective stump grinding method, but we can also have the stump gone in less than a day. 

By “gone,” we mean completely ground down to several inches below ground level so it will appear as if was never there to begin with. We can then cover the area with grass sod to really make it appear as if there was only ever grass there. 

Chemical Stump Removal

Another way to deal with pesky stumps is by chemical stump removal. While this way does work, it is time consuming and can be dangerous. First, you need to have the correct knowledge about stump removal chemicals to perform the job safely. Even then, chemical stump removals take anywhere from 3-6 weeks to be complete. 

Other, Ill-Advised Methods

After a bit of Googling, you may be confident about just lighting that dang ol’ stump on fire to get it gone. However, we don’t recommend many of these DIY stump removal methods. Just because someone on the internet says you can, doesn’t mean you should. 

When in Doubt, Call The Experts

Our recommendation for stump grinding is to completely grind the stump down below ground level. To do so, you need a quality stump grinder and a Tree Service with the knowledge to use it safely. These large machines can be dangerous! But, with proper use, they get the job done right.
