Do You Have A Tree Stump We Can Help With?

Once a tree has been felled the stump remains in the ground. Most of the time this isn’t a problem as the stump will naturally rot and decay, returning to nature and providing a perfect habitat for woodland creatures and fungi in the process.

However, there are certain situations where the removal of the stump is called for, for example:

  • The stump is on a site which is to be redeveloped
  • The tree has been removed for a purpose, i.e. to make way for a house extension
  • Leaving the tree stump in situ would pose a hazard to humans and/or animals

The most common and effective way to remove an unwanted tree stump, and the method which we use here at Scott Davies Tree Surgery, is to grind it away. We do this using a specialist stump grinder, which incorporates a large spinning disc and cutting teeth. We grind the stump down to around 25cm below the surface, leaving plenty of depth to lay concrete or turf over.

The machines we use to grind stumps is fairly compact so we can get it into tight spaces and can position it close to walls, fences, and other obstacles in order to remove as much of the stump as possible. Removing the roots of a tree is often very disruptive as they cover a large area underground, but this is usually unnecessary because the removal of the stump causes the root system to die away.
