When removing a tree or large shrub to ground level, a small proportion of the trunk or stem remains in the ground. This is known as the "Stump" or main rootball.
A stump can remain in the ground without causing any harm.
However; if you wish to replant (as in the far right photo) or lay more lawn, then it is necessary to remove the stump. The stump may also need removing for:
a new building / outhouse to be constructed
a new fence to be erected
or when it is just not appealing to leave an old stump in the lawn (as in the picture of a rotten Poplar)
The most efficient way of removing a stump is by using a stump grinder.
The stump grinder has a large cutter wheel with a number of blades, this is placed onto the stump and lowered progressively until the stump is ground out. This breaks down the stump and severs the roots, that will break down over time.
You can see the progress our red stump grinder makes and what remains.
These machines are capable of removing smaller stumps to a depth of up to 12 inches below ground level. We can also undertake larger stumps with bigger machinery.
