There is no one definitive answer to this question since stump removal and stump grinding depends on the size, location and condition of the stump. Generally, small stumps can be removed relatively quickly using a variety of ground-based techniques such as grinder roots or chain-saws. Larger stumps, or stump roots that are embedded in the ground, may heavier and more complicated methods using tools that are not typically available to the consumer. In some cases, stump removal may require the use of a stump grinder to break down the stump into smaller pieces so that it can be removed more easily. Additionally, tree roots and stumps can contain hazardous materials such as rusty nails or wood shavings that must be carefully disposed of in order to protect surrounding areas. HTS recommends consulting with an experienced professional if the stump removal process is not straightforward or if there are any safety concerns associated with the job.
While it is possible to remove a stump on your own, doing so may be difficult and dangerous. Stumps are often buried deep in the ground, making them difficult to access and potentially hazardous. Additionally, tree roots attached to the stump can cause injury if not removed properly.
Standard hand tools or readily available power tools may be useful for removing some smaller stumps, but larger stumps (e.g. 12 inch diameter or greater) or stump roots will likely require a professional stump grinder or other specialized equipment. If removal is required, the homeowner should contact an experienced tree trimming contractor such as Hicksville Tree Service remove the stump safely and efficiently.
Tree stumps and the roots can be ground using a variety of mechanical techniques such as stump grinders and chainsaws. Larger stumps or stump roots that are embedded in the ground may be much more difficult to break up and require digging methods and equipment that are not typically available to the consumer. In addition to typical mechanical methods, there are some chemical ways to break down tree stumps. These include glyphosate, triclopyr, picloram, potassium nitrate, potassium hydroxide (lye), and others. However, before taking on any stump destruction process, the homeowner should consult with a professional tree removal contractor to determine the best method for removing the stump without risking damage to people or their property.
