Distinction Between Removal and Grinding
Most stumps and their roots are addressed by a grinding process.
A professional stump grinding machine deliberately chews into the remains of an old tree until it has reduced it to a substantial mound of wood chips.
But some situations get more complicated.
Some old trees have long roots that stretch under structures or pavement.
They could be interfering with underground pipes or pushing up walk ways.
In order to remove these roots, it’s usually done with small tools.
This type of job winds up being slower and tougher to do.
Mukilteo Tree Stump Grinding Cost
Don’t know how much this usually costs around the northern suburbs?
As you can imagine, price is essentially based on the necessary length of the job.
The main factor, naturally, is simply how big the old tree was.
Additional factors could be involved though. The position of the old tree can be significant.
For challenging projects, additional challenges will have to be added into the cost.
Many fallen trees can be extracted with just the use of a grinding machine, but complicated situations involve other hand tools and a lot of manual labor.
A recently fallen tree, especially when it is still partly attached to the trunk, also will take more time and effort.
Qualified Stump Grinder Near You
Many of these jobs are carried out by companies who are in the primary business of taking out old stumps.
But a lot of jobs are completed by landscaping companies who could handle a variety of other yard issues or situations.
Regardless of who you contact, you can have your issue taken care of.
The Extraction Procedure
Your contractor will start by moving the grinder into place.
Once it’s ready, he will use it to start slicing away at the visible roots and trunk.
The process takes a while to complete.
Eventually, you will have a pile of wood chips near where the tree used to stand.
You will likely have a shallow hole once it’s done.
You may get a little new soil to complete the task.
A Few Questions Emerald City Grinders Want to Know
- Has it been there for a while or newly fallen?
- Is there something right next to it – like a house or some utility lines?
- Will it be easy to get to?
- What is the diameter of the stump?
- Is it in a level area or a slope?
- Does it have roots which extend under a driveway or sidewalk?
All these questions could factor into what your service provider may charge for your project.
Are You Thinking About Doing it On Your Own?
If you’re interested in wanting to do it yourself, an outdoor equipment rental store on the north side can show you a grinder you can rent for the day.
Some handy homeowners may try to do it themselves if their old tree wasn’t very big and it’s not hard to move a rented grinder up close to it.
But if your stump is sitting on a hill side, is tough to get to, or is really enormous, you should forward that job on to an expert.
If you choose to rent a grinder – be careful. Learn how it works and move slow.
Don’t hurry and don’t attempt anything you don’t feel confident in doing.
Is There Any Other Alternative I Could Try?
There are possibilities to using a chemical which will slowly weaken a fallen tree.
It isn’t a quick solution though.
You must make several deep holes into the old trunk.
You then dump the chemical in and forget about it for quite a while.
You can attempt to break apart your stump eventually as it slowly weakens and gets softer.
You may have to repeat the process multiple times.
Burning works, but you don’t see it done too much these days unless you live in a rural area.
In most suburbs of Seattle, burning is not the best solution for most homeowners.
