Stump grinding vs. stump removal

Stump grinding is an intricate process wherein the stump of the fallen tree is excavated without removing the root. We use cutting-edge stump grinders to mechanically grind out the stump, leaving sawdust around the stump as mulch, which can improve the overall health of your yard. Some people also keep the stump from the fallen tree to use it as a flower bed, adding aesthetic value to the stump. The stump is ground down according to your specific desire.

If you don’t want an empty stump in your yard, you can also opt for stump removal services. We use special cutting machines that grind and mulch stumps into small chips, following which they can be removed completely. Stump removal generally involves using heavy force to uproot the entire stump, which is more invasive than stump grinding. However, whether you opt for stump removal or stump grinding in Tigard and across Oregon, our experts clean up after the process and provide recommendations to improve the overall health of your yard.

Advantages of stump grinding in Oregon:

  • Stump grinding is a quick, efficient process that concludes within 2 hours.
  • The wood chips and sawdust produced by stump grinding serve numerous purposes.
  • Stump grinding is ecologically better because it doesn’t leave a giant hole in the ground.
  • There’s no need to fill a hole (which is necessary after stump removal).
  • Stump grinding is generally more affordable than stump removal.
  • Stump grinding makes lawn care easier because it makes the yard flatter.
  • Improve the overall aesthetic of your yard.

Can you replant after stump grinding?

It’s inadvisable to replant on the same area as the ground-down stump. Even though stump grinding can flatten the yard and reduce the visibility of the stump, the roots remain under the soil. The old tree’s root system can prevent a new tree from growing healthily, and diseases from the older tree can be transmitted to the new tree. If you want to grow a new tree, our tree specialists can evaluate your property to find the ideal location for a new tree.
