Why Stump Grinding Is The Best Way To Remove Tree Stumps
As earlier mentioned, cutting down dead, unhealthy, or unwanted trees leaves behind ugly stumps that occupy valuable space in your lawns or gardens. Grinding your tree stumps allows you to quickly create space for new gardens, lawns, patio, or new .
It can take many years for stumps to rot down, and this process may give rise to potential diseases that can spread to other healthy trees.
Stumps from many different tree species do not die when the trees have been cut. Their roots continue growing and may interfere with your underground drainage or water pipe systems. Your foundations may also face similar problems. You may also be forced to deal with constant regrowth that sprouts from the tree stump or from many points along with the remaining root system.
Stump grinding provides an excellent fast solution by totally getting rid of the stump from the ground.
How are Tree Stumps Ground?
We use specialist Stump grinding equipment to break down the unwanted stumps on your property. Our machines feature high-speed rotating blades fitted with tungsten teeth, hardened with carbide. These characteristics allow them to grind through tree stumps and roots below ground level.
Within a short period, the tree stump is reduced to wood chips and dust which we can pick up and remove or you can use as mulch.
We have a wide range of stump grinding equipment to grind any size tree stump at any level of difficulty.
Here's an example of stump grinding in action.
Tight Access Stump Grinding
Some tree stumps are located in tough-to-reach places with St George and Sutherland Shire landscapes. We have ground out stumps in all sorts of areas including steep terrain, narrow access, tight corners, riverbanks, and more.
In these situations, we use specialised equipment such as handheld stump grinders. Our handheld grinder, which can be carried up or down paths and stairs, suits jobs with difficult access, stumps in raised garden beds or next to pools.
Our compact machine can fit through doors and narrow spaces yet still grind large stumps.
Grinding Large Tree Stumps
For very large stumps that need deep grinding or complete removal, our 70hp grinder is the most suitable. For example, when preparing a building site for new construction. Grinding out a stump before excavation can be more cost-effective than using an excavator and paying tip fees.
Our large Rayco RG50 grinder can grind out stumps completely to prepare a building site for excavation.
Equipment such helps us attack any stump grinding job you ask us to complete. Before we start, we perform precautionary measures such as determining underground power lines, water and gas pipes, or broadband cables.

What Other Options Exist For Stump Removal?
You may choose to dig out tree stumps manually, but this can be a tedious task for bigger stumps.
It's also possible to hire lighter stump grinding equipment from certain outlets in Sydney for $100 to $200 per day. However, handling such equipment is highly risky unless you are a trained professional.
Another option is the use of excavators, but this is only possible if you have proper access to the tree stumps.
Chemical stump removal can also be an option to consider.
All these options have their disadvantages compared to hiring a professional stump grinding service. You can end up damaging underground water or gas pipes as well as electric cables which can be highly expensive to repair.
