How to choose a stump grinding professional.

Stump grinding is the process of using a machine appropriately called a stump grinder to mechanically shred (mulch) the remaining tree after it have been cut down below grade 4-8″ depth.

If you have numerous stumps make sure that the operator has professional grade equipment, and not a rental machine from the rental center. These machines are usually smaller, and may not be properly maintained.

An owner/operator will usually take better care of their equipment, and you will probably save money because of more efficient operation, no added rental fees and experience with the equipment.

When choosing a stump grinding professional look for someone that has at least a year experience especially if the stumps are located in a precarious yard location.

Also inquire about the operator being insured. While its not likely that the process will damage your property it’s always good to be sure your property is covered in case of flying debris damaging your car, or breaking a window.

It’s also a good idea to call 811 to have the utility lines marked before starting your project. It’s rare, but I have cut a couple of lines myself over the last 14 years of operation.

I hope this information proves helpful. Feel free to contact me if you have additional questions, or would like for me to take a look at your project. We can often provide quotes via text messaging for your convenience, and safety.
