Grinding or Removal – Is There a Difference?
Most stumps are removed through a grinding process.
Stump grinder machines progressively chip away at an old fallen or dead stump until there’s nothing left but a mound of wood chips.
But in a few bad circumstances, roots have extended under a driveway or sidewalk or around underground pipes. They can’t be reached with a grinder.
These roots have to be taken out. A grinder can’t get to them.
These jobs are more difficult to do and they take longer too.
Cost of Stump Grinding or Removal Near Manteca
It’s easy to get an estimate.
Estimates are primarily based on how much labor it will take to get the job finished.
The size and placement of the roots and the trunk typically determine how long it will take.
Additional factors might be involved though. Sometimes where the tree was originally planted is just as important.
It’s easy to give a quote for most jobs.
But the more complicated projects require a little more info.
Some long roots require a lot of manual labor to cut out; Other old trees are easy to cut out with just a grinder.
A freshly fallen tree that is still partly in the ground is also a situation which will take additional time and effort.
A Friendly Tracy Stump Grinder
There are two kinds of companies that can take out your old tree.
First, there are specialists who do almost nothing but stump removal.
And many of the other jobs are handled by the bigger local landscaping companies.
Most of them have associates who have experience in doing this sort of work.
Both kinds of companies could help you out.
The Removal Process
Your service provider will move their machine up near the tree.
Once it’s there, the operator will use their machine to progressively chip away at the previous tree and its roots.
It doesn’t take place immediately. It should take a while to complete. When it’s over, the remains of that tree have become a pile of soft wood chips.
You will likely have a shallow indentation once it is finished.
You may need some fill soil to finish the process.
Your Northern California Tree Service Wants to Know These Specifics
- How wide is this stump and its roots?
- Will it be hard to roll a machine next to it?
- Is there anything right next to it – like a fence or other structure?
- Is it on level ground?
- Has the tree been down for a while or recently fallen?
- Does it have long roots which extend under a driveway or walkway?
Each of these questions could factor into what your contractor may charge for your project.
Is This Kind of Job Hard? Could I Do It Myself?
You don’t have to call in a pro. You could try doing it on your own if you feel up to it.
There is an equipment rental store around your suburb that will rent you a grinder.
If you are faced with just a small or medium tree, and it’s in a safe place of your lawn, you can certainly try working on it yourself.
But enormous stumps, thick roots, or any tree that is sitting on a hillside or slope, those jobs are for the knowledgeable remover.
If you’re going to rent a grinder, make sure to understand how it operates.
Stay away from the cutting tool area and use eye protection.
Are There Any Other Options Besides Breaking it Up?
There are chemicals which will soften up a dead tree over time. They don’t work fast.
You will have to make quite a few deep holes into your old trunk.
You then put the chemical in and forget about it for a few weeks.
You can try to break apart your stump gradually as it slowly weakens and becomes softer.
You might have to repeat the process more than once.
If your property is in the right location, you could still attempt burning it.
But you don’t see this practice done so much anymore.
Around communities like ours, burning usually isn’t a suitable option though.
