Removal Jobs or Grinding Jobs
Past trees with considerable roots sometimes need to be pulled out, but most are simply chopped up where they stand.
A professional stump grinding machine deliberately chews into the remnants of an old tree until it has made it into a substantial load of wood chips.
Some circumstances are harder though.
Sometimes old trees have developed considerable roots which extend under a structure or walkway.
They could be pressing up concrete or disturbing water pipes.
Yanking those big roots out is a challenging job, so it often ends up being performed with hand tools instead of a machine.
Since these types of projects are much harder, they take longer to get finished.

Maybe it’s time for an estimate.
Your specialist will base his or her price on how long your job will take.
The key factor, as you might imagine, is simply the diameter of the stump and the exposed roots.
Bigger takes more time.
There may be other factors too.
Maybe the stump is next to some underground water or gas supply lines.
Most projects are easy to offer an estimate for, but the more difficult cases require a little more work.
Some roots demand plenty of manual labor to take out; Other trees are easy to take care of with just a grinder.

What Can You Expect to Take Place
Your service provider will position their machine up near the tree.
Once in place, the operator will use their machine to steadily chip away at the previous tree and the roots.
Depending on the size of the trunk, the process will take some time to complete.
It’s a gradual process. It won’t finish too fast.
It’s possible you’ll need some extra soil to help fill in the area where the roots and trunk used to be.

Is This a Project I Could Do On My Own?
If you want to try doing the work on your own, you can rent a machine from a good Seattle equipment rental place.
If you think your job might not be too hard to do – maybe you could give it a try.
However, if your tree was big, or it’s difficult to get to, why don’t you leave it for a specialist to do.
There is a little risk involved with this operation.
The cutting wheel is extremely sharp and turns rapidly.
Bits of bark, root and earth can be shot through the air. Be careful.
Could There Be Any Other Alternative I Could Try Instead?
There are chemicals that will soften up a dead tree with time. They don’t work too fast though.
It requires the right patience, the right liquids and a very long drill bit to make the holes to pour the chemicals in.
If it all works out well, someday your old tree will become a bit softer so you can start splitting it up with an axe.
It will take a long time to decay.
Burning can work, but you don’t see it done much these days unless you’re in a rural area.
Most property owners in suburbs around the Emerald City aren’t interested in using the burn method.
