What Is Stump Grinding?

Stump grinding is exactly what you might be thinking. After a tree has been cut down, what remains is a couple of feet of stump. Stump grinding involves the use of a stump grinder to chew away at the stump wood, shredding the stump into small pieces until the stump is brought up to 18 inches below ground. You end up with a whole lot of woodchips as well as a hole in the ground. Many property owners opt to fill the hole with the woodchips while others choose to use the woodchips as mulch and bring in soil to fill the hole.

The Benefits and Drawbacks of Stump Grinding

Stump grinding has many benefits, but it also has a drawback. The most obvious benefit is that a stump grinding in Atlanta gets rid of that lump of wood from the yard. Stumps are eyesores, taking away from the beauty of your lawn, but they are also dangerous. They can be trip hazards and can damage lawncare equipment. Stumps also rot over time, inviting pests, fungus, and disease to the property. Stump grinding brings that stump below ground level and frees up space on your yard.


However, stump grinding does not get involved with the roots. So, while you will have made space above-ground, the roots will still be occupying a significant part underground. This can interfere with planting. It can also interfere with building. Because the roots will decay over time, building on top of them can result in a shaky foundation. However, if you simply plan to lay some turf, then you should be alright.

DIY Stump Grinding

Stump grinding might sound simple enough to do it yourself but be careful not to injure yourself. There are also the costs to consider. You likely do not have a stump grinder of your own. Renting one, learning how to use it, and executing the job have high costs, in terms of money and time. Why deal with those costs and risks when you can get professional stump grinding in Atlanta at an affordable price with Southern Star Stump? Call now to get a free price estimate.
