Grinding or Removal – Is There a Difference?
Most stumps are removed through a grinding process.
Stump grinder machines deliberately slice away at an old fallen or dead stump until there is nothing left but a pile of chips.
But in some bad circumstances, long roots have stretched out under a sidewalk or driveway or near below ground pipes. They can’t be reached with a grinder.
Getting those roots out is a tricky job, so it often winds up being done with hand tools rather than a machine.
These jobs are more difficult, require more time and often cost more too.
Buena Park Tree Stump Grinding Cost
Wondering how much this could cost?
Short jobs are less expensive than longer jobs.
The diameter of the base and roots of the tree are typically what determines just how long the project will take.
Of course, there are other variables. Maybe there is more than one old tree to take out.
For more challenging assignments, those additional obstacles will have to be factored in the cost.
Certain roots demand a lot of physical labor to cut out; Other trees are easy to get with just a grinder.
Sometimes, the age of the tree is important too.
A tree that has recently been chopped down, or one which has just come down is going to take longer than an old one that has already decayed some.
A Knowledgeable Cypress Stump Grinder
Many of the stump elimination jobs completed in our area are done by folks who focus on doing it.
But a lot of homeowners call general landscaping companies to do the job.
Their work crews have the experience to get it done too.
Regardless of who you call, you can get your issue addressed.
How Does this Work?
Your specialist will position their machine next to the tree.
Once in place, the operator will use their machine to slowly chip away at the old tree and the roots.
The process takes a while to complete.
In the end, you will have a pile of wood chips close to where that tree used to be.
Once it’s completely gone, there is often a shallow spot that needs a friendly filling out with new dirt.

Maybe You Could Do It Yourself
You can likely stop by a western Anaheim lawn equipment company who will rent you a grinder for a day.
If you have just a smaller stump you want to get rid of, maybe you could do it alright.
But if your project was once a substantial tree, or it’s on a slope or hill, maybe you shouldn’t try doing it. Leave it to somebody else.
Using a grinder isn’t without risk.
The cutter disk is sharp. It moves forcefully and can spray pieces of bark through the air.
Could I Burn it Up or Try Some Chemicals?
You can buy a solution that can soften up a stump.
It can take several applications and a lot of patience though.
First you buy the chemicals, then you drill lots of deep holes.
You carefully pour the chemical into those holes. Your objective is to soften your old trunk up.
You will eventually try to slice it apart as it becomes softer week by week.
A taller trunk will take several applications and extra time to rot.
Burning works, but you don’t see it performed much anymore unless you live in a rural area.
Around areas of northwest Orange County, burning generally is not a suitable alternative though.
