What To Do With Tree Stumps
The next step after having a tree removed is to consult a tree stump professional and decide how much of the stump you want removed. If you plan on planting a new tree where the stump is, the stump grinder will need to grind the stump and the trees root structure deeper in the ground which does cost more. A cheaper alternative is to have the top of the stump ground while leaving the root structure intact, you can then add some ground cover such as pine straw or mulch where the stump used to be.
There are two types of tree stump grinding machines, one is operated via remote control while the other requires a person to push the machine over the stump.
