Stump Grinding service in Alexandria, VA
Stump Removal Alexandria
Whether you have removed a dangerous tree from your property, or are clearing a lot to build something new, then removing the tree itself is only half the job. After removing and chopping down the tree, it’s time to for stump removal and start stump grinding. Otherwise, not only will you be left with a large piece of wood rooted in the ground, but you may find the tree sprouting again!
Nature, after all, is a fighter, and stump removal via stump grinding is the pro way to finish the job.
After hiring bush removal services, or getting rid of a relatively small tree, it may be possible for you to simply dig out the stumps. However, if you are dealing with an old oak or a massive willow, then it will simply be unfeasible to perform stump removal with a simple spade.
“But most tree companies near me offer tree stump removal services!”
This is technically true — but few offer true professional stump removal via stump grinding.
What is Stump Grinding?
Stump removal via stump grinding involves pulverizing the entire stump into mulch. This is usually done with a sharp and very quick spinning wheel — although the specific machine comes in a variety of sizes and models, each offering more power or more precision.
If You Want Proper Stump Grinding...
Naturally, sharp spinning blades are something that require safety gear and forethought in order to handle correctly. This is why any proper company offering stump grinding in Alexandria (such as us!) will begin their task with an on-site consultation.
What we check for:
After checking out the terrain type, the tree species, the stump size, and the depth of the root system, we can begin designing a realistic grinding operation.
Some trees are known for their tougher, more resilient wood and will need specific types of blades. In addition, many treatments that the tree may have been subjected to while still young can affect the grinding process — such as metal wirings or anti-pest coatings.
How we prepare:
During grinding, the mulch and wood chips created tends to spin around and be thrown in all directions. This is why, before we turn any blades on, we properly secure the perimeter — we don’t want any pieces to end up through a nearby window!
We will also check the area for any nearby underground cables or root systems that belong to other plants. This is a key part of the highly-precise stumping grinding service that we are proud to offer.
What comes next?
A complete deep grinding job also requires us to go a few inches underground, as well as getting rid of external roots — unless you want to see an odd twig popping out underneath your new building. And of course, the job is not complete until we have cleaned up the area and completely refilled the hole.
